Ivorian Wilfried Bony hit a
second-half double to put Vitesse Arnhem on track for a Europa
League berth with a 3-1 win at RKC Waalwijk in the first leg of
the Dutch play-off final on Thursday.
Tomas Kalas opened the scoring for Vitesse with a fierce,
25-metre drive midway through the first half but 10 minutes
after the break Krisztian Nemeth collected a cross from Furkan
Alakmak to equalise.
Sloppy defensive work from Waalwijk, who eliminated Twente
Enschede in the semi-finals, allowed Bony to restore the lead
after 69 minutes with a fine chip before he scored again nine
minutes before time.
The return leg is scheduled for Sunday and the winners will
go into the second qualifying round of the Europa League.
