SoccerNews in Eredivisie 28 Feb 2010


(GSM) – There were no surprises in the Dutch Eredivisie on Sunday, as all of the top-four teams won their games.

Leaders PSV hosted last-placed RKC Waalwijk in Eindhoven and earned a rather easy 5-1 victory.

Hungarian Balazs Dzsudzsak scored the opening goal for Fred Rutten’s side in the sixth minute, and Ibrahim Afellay made it 2-0 13 minutes later. After another three minutes, it was Danny Koevermans to add a third.

Nordin Amrabat went on to find the target five minutes before the end, and although Charlison Benschot pulled one back three minutes after the hour, Koevermans soon restored the advantage with his goal for 5-1 on 68 minutes.

FC Twente had a hard time against NEC but did end up taking three points. Luuk de Jong scored the opening goal in Twente’s favor after 13 minutes, but had his effort cancelled out by Bjorn Vleminckx in the 67th.

The winning goal came at five minutes from the end, and was scored by Costa Rican striker Bryan Ruiz, 2-1.

Third-placed Ajax received Utrecht at the Amsterdam Arena and the visitors went a man down after 33 minutes as Jan Wuytens was sent off.

Ajax first took advantage through Luis Suarez ten minutes later, and Gregory van der Wiel made it 2-0 six minutes after the hour. Further goals from Suarez and Danish winger Dennis Rommedahl set the score to 4-0.

Feyenoord gave away a 0-2 lead at Groningen but scored a late winner to leave Groningen with a 2-3 win.

No goals were scored in the first half at Euroborg stadium but Andrea Bahia (57th) and Jon Dahl Tomasson (80) gave Feyenoord a comfortable lead in the second.

Groningen fought back however. Tim Matavz netted for 1-2 in the 83rd minute and Andreas Granqvist got the equaliser five minutes later.

But Feyenoord had the final day, as defender Ron Vlaar scored the winning goal in the 90th minute.
