Feyenoord battled back from 2-0 down to defeat RKC Waalwijk 3-2 in De Kuip.

Feyenoord have shown signs of improvement under Dick Advocaat with VVV Venlo comfortable defeated last weekend before the Rotterdammer’s secured a 1-1 draw with Young Boys in the Europa League.

However, things turned for the worst in the opening twenty minutes against RKC Waalwijk. The Eredivisie’s bottom side took the lead through Darren Maatsen after 14 minutes before Sylla Sow scored a wonderful solo goal to make it 2-0.

In the 25th minute, Luis Sinisterra set up Nicolai Jorgensen to quickly pull one back for Feyenoord. That was the last action for Sinisterra, who went off injured to be replaced by Sam Larsson.

The Swedish winger proved his worth by equalising five minutes before the break with a free-kick that deflected off the wall and into the net.

Feyenoord pushed forward in the second half but Jorgensen saw an effort cleared from the line, while Orkun Kokcu also went close.

The game was heading for a draw but with five minutes left, a Steven Berghuis free-kick was headed in by Marcos Senesi to win the game for Feyenoord. It could have been 4-2 at the end, but Berghuis somehow hit the bar with the goal gaping.

The victory sees Feyenoord remain tenth in the table, while RKC are bottom.
