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.
