A minute before the break, Bruno Martins Indi made it 2-0 to Feyenoord with a great first time strike into the bottom corner from a Pelle knockdown.

Seven minutes into the second half, Pelle grabbed his 2nd of the game, and Feyenoord’s third with a first time strike from a Nelom cross.

On 62 minutes, Samuel Armenteros was brought down in the box, allowing Graziano Pelle to net his hat-trick from the penalty spot, and send Feyenoord 4-0 up.

On 77 minutes ADO Den Haag were awarded their own penalty after a clumsy challenge by De Vrij, but Mike van Duinen missed from the spot.

Ricky Van Haaren did pull one back for the away side on 88 minutes, before he saw a cross headed into his own goal by Jordy Clasie a minute later to make the final score 4-2 to the hosts.

Feyenoord have recovered from their early season dip, and are now only 2 points off the top, while ADO Den Haag stay 2nd bottom.
