Feyenoord finally equalised on 26 minutes, as Lex Immers finished at the back post after a cross from Miquel Nelom.

Ten minutes later Daryl Janmaat’s cutback was slotted into the net by Graziano Pelle to put Feyenoord 2-1 in front. Three minutes later Jean Paul Boetius was brought down in the box, and Feyenoord were awarded a penalty, but Pelle’s weak effort was saved.

Boetius made it 3-1 on 56 minutes as he fired in Lex Immers cross at the back post, while Pelle added another four minutes later with a first time volley on the edge of the box.

NEC were then awarded a penalty of their own as Nelom fouled Rieks, but the midfielder’s spot kick was also missed, as Mulder guessed the right way.

With 12 minutes to go Boetius added his second of the game with a fine curled effort into the corner to make it 5-1 at the end. The big win sees Feyenoord leapfrog Vitesse in third due to goal difference, while they are equal on points with Twente in 2nd. NEC remain in 17th after suffering their first defeat of 2014.
