he prior two rounds had been "dignified losses", but this gameat the Amsterdam Arena taught Klinger's players a lesson in European football.  The Dutch champion, which had lost the first two rounds, charged Liran Strauber's net from the very beginning.  At the 4th minute, a block by Maccabi’s goalkeeper went into the center of the field and ended with a goal by Wesley Sonck.  At the 21st minute, the hosts once again embarrassed the Yellows’ defense.  Strauber left the goal to the left and De Jong hit a header from just 2 meters away. In the 33rd minute, Strauber managed to save a header by Van der Vaart, but the Dutch rebound found its way into the net.
