For Vitesse captain Guram Kashia took the thuisduel with Excelsior only twenty minutes.
The captain wanted with a 1-0 lead, a Rotterdam-based cross uitverdedigen, but crashed it heavily with opponent Lorenzo Burnet.
Within a short time, had the Georgian a huge egg above his left eye and he had to leave the field. A disappointment for coach Henk Fraser, who before all his other central defender Matt Miazga by illness, could not compose. Thomas Oude Kotte filled Vitesse again after the injury of Kashia.
