After their first two seasons ever in Eredivisie, last year they were relegated, but had the strength to return to the topflight immediately. They did it brilliantly, winning Eerste Divisie with 83 points, 8 more than the runner-ups. Their strength was certainly not the attack (just 64 goals scored, 7th in the league), but the defensive organization that allowed them to concede only 24 goals. Goalkeeper Michael Brouwer made 17 clean sheets! Another strength of the team was coach Dick Lukkien, on Emmen's bench since 2016. He knows well the environment and his players, and he will also lead the squad this season. During the summer transfer market there have been some departures, but they were mostly substitutes, while they managed to keep most of the starters. As for the arrivals, goalkeeper Eric Oelschlägel from Utrecht came to replace Brouwer, back at Heracles, then they added experience with defender Michaël Heylen from Sparta Rotterdam and midfielder Maikel Kieftenbeld. There is a lot of curiosity around the two Peruvians who arrived in the summer, forward Fernando Pacheco and striker Gonzalo Sánchez. The pre-season was not the best possible, no victory in three games, a draw against PEC Zwolle and two defeats, 2-1 against Groningen and 3-2 against De Graafschap.

Target


Like all the new promoted sides, the goal will be the permanence in Eredivisie, and, if they manage to maintain the defensive organization displayed last season, they could hit the target without problems.

Season Review
2020/2021

№16: FC Emmen

Only at their third season in the Eredivisie, Emmen went through one of the craziest campaigns one could possibly ever imagine. In fact, at the end of week 22 they were sitting all alone at the foot of the table, having collected just 6 draws and no wins whatsoever. It was mid-February and, despite such despairing results, coach Lukkien, the architect of their arrival to the top flight of the Dutch football, sported an incomprehensible optimism as he kept repeating that they would not be relegated. Some of the many players that had joined Emmen during the winter transfer campaign became protagonists. Among them, Verrips made it between the posts, while Bernadou and Vlak brought muscles and nous in the middle of the park. Frei, who had also participated to the previous survival, and Azdic injected highly-needed creativity in the attack. Right out of the blue, Emmen turned into a completely different team. They started winning games with ease and giving hard times to all sorts of opponents. Between weeks 23 and 30 they won 5 games and drew 3, in particular stealing points from their trips to 7th-placed Groningen and 5th-placed Feyenoord. Thus, they dragged themselves out of the bottom 2 and made it to the play-off spot. Back-to-back 0-4 defeats to Ajax and Groningen did not jeopardise their march but, despite winning the last 2 and matching RKC Waalwijk in the table, they failed to achieve direct survival due to a poorer goal difference and had to face the play-offs against NAC Breda which resulted in their relegation after a dramatic penalty shootout. Despite a limited budget and the most embarrassing of starts to the season, Emmen proved that they can still belong in the Eredivisie and that one should never give up no matter how desperate the situation is. If they want to immediately return to the Eredivisie, they will have to find a proper replacement for De Leeuw, set to quit for Groningen, whose 13 goals were decisive for their remarkable run.
