NAC Breda 2-2 Sparta Rotterdam

Ragnar Ache scored twice as Sparta Rotterdam came from two goals down to take a point in a 2-2 draw at NAC Breda.
Manchester City striker Pablo Mari Villar, one of six loanees at NAC, opened the scoring with his second goal of the season, turning the ball home at the second attempt just before half-time.
NAC doubled their lead early in the second half when Rai Vloet headed home City full-back Angelino's corner, but Sparta pulled a goal back with just under 20 minutes remaining when Ache powered home a header from Michel Breuer's centre.
Thierry Ambrose, another striker on loan from the Blues, spurned the chance to seal the points for the home side when he was denied by goalkeeper Roy Kortsmit one-on-one.
And they were made to pay as Ache popped up with his second goal of the game with four minutes remaining.
