Jesus “Tecatito” Corona gave his team a boost in their bid for a European place with a 62nd minute goal against local rivals, Heracles, as FC Twente earned a 2-0 victory in the Twentse Derby. It was Corona’s fourth goal this season.
Heracles was perhaps fortunate not to go down in the first half when Tecatito missed twice from close-range.
But in the second half, Corona more than made up for his misses when he poked the ball into the back of the net after a defensive error from Heracle’s back-line.
Two minutes from time, Bilal Ould-Chikh doubled the lead to guarantee the home-side all three points.
The win keeps Twente in 6th in the Dutch Eredivisie.
