PSV return to summit in Holland

The bottom club went toe to toe with their more illustrious rivals
in a first half that saw PSV take a 3-0 lead courtesy of goals from
Balazs Dzsudzsak, Jeremain Lens and Ibrahim Afellay. Andreas
Landgren and Andreas Lasnik hit back for Willem before Jonathan
Reis sealed it with PSV’s fourth seven minutes into the second
period. Three goals in four first-half minutes set Roda JC on the
road to a fifth win of the season, 4-1 against struggling Vitesse
Arnhem. Arnaud Sutchuin Djoum broke the deadlock in the 31st
minute, with Mads Junker helping himself to a brace immediately
afterwards as Roda let loose. Willem Janssen made it four three
minutes into the second half before Julian Jenner struck a
consolation just before the hour mark. Andreas Granqvist netted 25
seconds into the second half to give FC Groningen a 1-0 victory
over Heerenveen which moved them up to fifth. The hosts had plenty
of chances in the first period at the Euroborg but could not find
the net until Granqvist headed them ahead moments after the
resumption. Samuel Armenteros’ last-gasp strike lifted Heracles
Almelo out of the relegation zone with a 3-2 victory over NEC
Nijmegen. Armenteros capped a thrilling match by heading home in
the 89th minute to earn his side all three points. Heracles had
earlier surrendered a two-goal lead, given to them by Willy
Overtoom’s penalty and a strike from Everton Ramos da Silva, as
Lorenzo Davids and Lasse Schone’s penalty got NEC back on level
terms.
