Willem II Tilburg 1-1 NAC Breda

Willem II were held to a 1-1 draw at home by NAC Breda in the battle for points at the bottom of the Eredivisie.
The hosts, on the back of a three-match unbeaten run, broke the deadlock just before half-time through Bartholomew Ogbeche.
The in-form veteran Nigerian striker - with six goals in his previous three appearances - stabbed the ball in following a goalmouth scramble after a corner on 43 minutes.
However, Breda, who beat Excelsior last weekend for a first win in eight Eredivisie matches to climb out of the bottom three, were level just five minutes into the second half when on-loan Manchester City forward Thierry Ambrose netted from close range.
