Eredivisie review

Feyenoord let top spot slip

March 30, 2013

Feyenoord missed the chance to go top of the Eredivisie after going down 2-0 at Heerenveen.

Ronald Koeman's men could have temporarily moved above Ajax and PSV Eindhoven with victory on Saturday and even a point would have seen them go second. But Alfred Finnbogason gave Heerenveen an 85th-minute lead before Yassine El Ghanassy ensured there was no way back for Feyenoord a minute from time.

Wout Brama's 83rd-minute strike rescued a 1-1 draw for FC Twente against NAC, who took the lead just after half-time through Kenny van der Weg.

Bottom club Willem II let a one-goal lead slip as their hopes of beating the drop took another blow with a 2-1 defeat at home to FC Groningen. The hosts looked set for a rare win following Rob Haemhouts' strike in the 27th minute but a penalty after 66 minutes from Leandro Bacuna levelled matters before David Texeira sealed victory for Groningen shortly afterwards.

Two goals in 16 minutes set FC Utrecht on the way to a 2-1 victory over VVV. Edouard Duplan opened the scoring in the fifth minute before Leon de Kogel doubled the hosts' lead, with Brian Linssen's effort before half-time proving mere consolation.
