Feyenoord are level on points with Ajax at the top of the Eredivisie after a 1-0 win over PEC Zwolle.

Feyenoord face Ajax this weekend but were fully focussed on PEC Zwolle according to Dick Advocaat and Steven Berghuis before the game.

However, the Rotterdam side were poor in the first-half and could not find the opening goal. Lucas Pratto and Jens Toornstra couldn’t take their chances.

At the break, Dick Advocaat swapped Bryan Linssen and Mark Diemers for Luis Sinisterra and Ridgeciano Haps. In the 64th minute, the changes worked with Sinisterra finding the far corner after the ball fell to his feet. It was his first goal of the season.

PEC Zwolle came close to an equaliser late on but Virgil Misidjan was denied by Nick Marsman.

Feyenoord climbs to second with the victory and level with Ajax, who face FC Twente on Thursday. PEC Zwolle are 12th.
