Duarte makes breakthrough  
Laros Duarte made the breakthrough for PSV U21 on 57 minutes. The midfielder controlled the ball well before unleashing a vicious shot from twenty yards out into the SC Cambuur net: 0-1. Minutes later, Peersman thought he had levelled but one-on-one with Van Osch, the striker hit the outside of the post. The hosts threw everything forward in search of an equaliser but PSV U21 held on in the closing stages to record their second straight Jupiler League victory.
