Feyenoord is a bit closer to a new title in the Netherlands. The team from Rotterdam succeeded for the first time in eighteen years in winning the top match on the field of Ajax: 2-3. The leader in the Eredivisie is six points ahead of the score.
Feyenoord took an early lead in the Johan Cruijff Arena thanks to a well-played attack. Santiago Giménez dryly poked the 0-1 against the ropes.
However, everything could be redone on fifteen minutes when Edson Alvarez headed in the equalizer on a corner kick from ex-Feyeno player Steven Berghuis. And the team from Amsterdam continued their momentum: Steven Bergwijn gave up appropriately to Dusan Tadic, who crossed the lead for the Dutch record champion.
Feyenoord had to do something and managed to make a fist again shortly after the break. Alireza Jahanbakhsh passed the ball through, central midfielder Sebastian Szymanski extended the ball into goal for the 2-2. For a long time, the match seemed to be heading for that draw, despite the field dominance for Ajax. But in the final phase, home player Mohamed Kudus got another dot of a chance. Feyenoord goalkeeper Timon Wellenreuther (ex-Anderlecht) kept the 2-2 on the board with a great save.
Barely two minutes later it was bingo on the other side: Lutsharel Geertruida was able to head a corner kick into goal for the 2-3. The Johan Cruijff Arena became dead silent. For Feyenoord it is the first victory in Amsterdam since 2005, for Ajax coach John Heitinga the first loss of points after nine consecutive league victories since he took over from Alfred Schreuder . The team from Rotterdam is now six points ahead of Ajax in the standings.
