ROTTERDAM, April 16 (Eredivisie) - Feyenoord finished their season on a high with a regulation win in Rotterdam which ensured relegated RBC Roosendaal failed to take their season points tally into double figures.
Dirk Kuyt (penalty) and Pierre van Hooijdonk scored the goals late in the second half after the visitors had Jose Fortes Rodriquez sent off, but the hosts were always in control.
Feyenoord were already guaranteed a placed in play-off zone for the Eredivisie's second Champions League play-off place.
They might have snatched second place if AZ Alkmaar had lost, but with Luis van Gaal's men winning 4-2, there was little riding on this result.
Nevertheless, Feyenoord laid on a good show for their home fans, and it was pretty much one-way traffic throughout.
Kuyt had a shot cleared off the line in only the seventh minute after being played in by Salomon Kalou, and it was Kuyt again in the 26th minute, this time seeing his shot saved well by RBC goalkeeper Erwin Friebel.
Kuyt had one more chance to score in the first half, beating two defenders before firing narrowly wide moments before the break.
Feyenoord picked up where they left off when play resumed. Friebel had to make a double save in the 52nd minute, first parrying Romeo Castelen's shot and then blocking Nick Hofs' follow-up.
RBC were hanging on, and their task became much harder when Rodriguez had a moment of madness, punching Van Hooijdonk after the pair challenged for a cross.
Rodriguez was dismissed, and after Van Hooijdonk received lengthy treatment, Kuyt stroked the penalty home to put Feyenoord ahead.
They sealed the win seven minutes from time when Castelen's cross was met by Van Hooijdonk at the far post and headed into the net.
Feyenoord will now face rivals Ajax in the Champions League play-offs, while RBC contemplate life in the Gouden Gids Divisie.
