PSV continue incredible start to Eredivisie season with win over Feyenoord

Eredivisie leaders PSV Eindhoven came up against their toughest challenge of the season so far, an away game at De Kuip against Feyenoord, the team in second place in the league. Peter Bosz’s team were able to come away with all three points following a 2-1 victory against Feyenoord. This win completed a brilliant week for the team from Eindhoven after their last minute winner against Sevilla which guaranteed Champions League football in February.

In the first half of the game both teams had the opportunity to open the scoring, Feyenoord were loose in possession on a few occasions, allowing PSV the ball in the final third but they were unable to convert. On a few occasions Eredivisie top scorer, Santiago Giménez, was able to shoot from distance but nothing that truly threatened the goal of Walter Benítez. The best chance of the first half came in additional time as Giménez had the chance to put Feyenoord ahead following a low cross into the box but the Mexican striker was unable to convert with a sliding attempt at goal.

The game came to life in the 65th minute when Ismael Saibari converted from a Johan Bakayoko cross, Peter Bosz will be happy with the Moroccan midfielder as he came up with two important goals against Sevilla and Feyenoord. Three minutes later Luuk de Jong nearly converted with a fine acrobatic effort from another left-footed Bakayoko cross but was smothered by the Feyenoord goalkeeper who conceded a corner. However PSV were able to put their foot on the throat of Feyenoord and score again when they could feel the pressure was on the home side, defender Olivier Boscagli scored from the resulting corner kick, which saw PSV two goals ahead with just over 25 minutes to play.

With ten minutes to play a left-footed Giménez shot was parried by the PSV goalkeeper into his own net and led to a nervy end of the game for the visitors. To the enjoyment of Peter Bosz, PSV were able to hold on to the victory and continue their 14 game winning streak in the Eredivisie.
