Feyenoord added a little pressure on the Eredivisie leaders Ajax with a close 1-0 win over VVV Venlo on Friday evening.
Feyenoord headed into tonight’s game in fourth place, four points adrift of leader Ajax and one behind both PSV and Vitesse, but with the one goal win Feyenoord have now jumped to second place with the victory, although the surrounding teams are obviously still to play this weekend.
Feyenoord were forced to work hard for the three points, especially with scores being locked at 0-0 heading into the final twenty minutes. It took a 71st-minute strike from Italian striker Graziano Pelle after a whipping cross from defender Joris Mathijsen to break the deadlock and send Feyenoord second.
