  • Save

Cyriel Dessers scored a hattrick as Heracles Almelo hammered VVV Venlo 6-1.

VVV Venlo went into the clash on the back of six straight league defeats and in Almelo, that rotten run extended to seven games.

The hosts took the lead in the 23rd minute through Alexander Merkel before Silvester van der Water doubled Heracles lead early in the second half with a fierce strike.

In the 56th minute, Cyriel Dessers fired in to make it 3-0 before the striker set up Mauro Junior to score a fourth.

Dessers slotted in his second in the 64th minute before Peter van Ooijen netted a consolation for VVV Venlo. Eight minutes from time, Dessers sealed his hattrick and a comfortable victory for the hosts.
