Scoring First and Losing: Two Weeks in European Football

After two weeks of the Eredivisie and one week each of Ligue 1 and the EPL, there are eight games that have the first team scoring and losing. Six of these games come from the Eredivisie. The median time to equalise is 27 minutes.

Den Haag led by two goals in their game against Utrecht (link) and lost the game 2v4.

The final scores in these games were:
