Graziano Pelle: Bagged two goals in Feyenoord's 6-0 win

A review of the weekend's action so far in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Feyenoord hit Heracles Almelo for six to keep their Eredivisie title hopes alive on Sunday.

Graziano Pelle scored twice, the second a penalty after Heracles had had goalkeeper Remko Pasveer sent off a minute before half-time, to go with strikes from John Goossens and Lex Immers as the Rotterdammers led 4-0 at the break.

Ruben Schaken made it five before Goossens sealed a 6-0 win with his second.

The victory moved Feyenoord level on points with PSV Eindhoven in second, but Ajax have a four-point advantage at the top with two games left.

Vitesse Arnhem stayed within two points of Feyenoord with a 3-1 home win over Willem II which edged the visitors closer to the drop.

Mike Havenaar, Wilfried Bony and Marco van Ginkel put the hosts in control, Genaro Snijders with a consolation for Willem II, who were left four points adrift of the relegation play-off places.

FC Twente enjoyed a 5-2 win at home to NEC Nijmegen.

Goals from Douglas, Luc Castaignos and Nacer Chadli put the hosts three up after 47 minutes, but Nick van der Velden pulled one back.

Rasmus Bengtsson made it 4-1 before late goals from Twente's Felipe Gutierrez and Erik Falkenburg.

Elsewhere, FC Utrecht won 2-1 at PEC Zwolle.

Utrecht went ahead after two minutes through Nana Asare but Joost Broerse levelled.

Elroy Pappot got the winner 10 minutes into the second half.

Ajax could be crowned Eredivisie champions next weekend following Saturday's 2-0 win at NAC Breda.

The capital club retained their four-point gap at the top of the standings thanks to a quickfire double after half-time. Kolbeinn Sigthorsson struck first on 47 minutes before a Tim Gilissen own goal soon after left Ajax on the brink of a 32nd top-flight crown.

Frank de Boer's side will retain their title if they beat bottom-placed Willem II at the Amsterdam ArenA next Sunday.

PSV Eindhoven now appear only to be playing for second place, and Champions League qualification, but took an important step to pinning down that spot after routing FC Groningen 5-2.

PSV scored all their goals in the first half, with Tim Matavz, Dries Mertens and Jeremain Lens on target inside the first 13 minutes. Mark van Bommel got in on the act on 41 minutes before Lens' second arrived on the stroke of half-time.

Groningen earned some consolation after the break through a Michael De Leeuw double.

PSV's win moves them three points clear of Feyenoord, who host Heracles on Sunday.

Roda JC grabbed a crucial win in their fight against the drop as they beat RKC Waalwijk, who occupy the final safety position, 3-1.

Jeroen Zoet gifted Roda a 50th-minute opener and after Sanharib Malki doubled the advantage the hosts were out of sight when Guy Ramos scored a second own goal.

Nourdin Boukhari grabbed RKC's goal on 89 minutes but defeat allowed Roda to move a point behind them.

VVV-Venlo cannot secure automatic safety after they drew 1-1 at ADO Den Haag.

VVV had led for the majority of the contest through Uche Nwofor (14) only for Mike van Duinen to deliver a killer blow six minutes from the end.

VVV's only hope of survival is now through the relegation play-offs, while bottom-placed Willem II are four points behind and still able to catch them.

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
