Feyenoord’s three-game winning streak was brought to an end by Heerenveen after the Frisians earned a 1-1 draw in De Kuip.

After a poor start to the season, Feyenoord seemed back to themselves in recent weeks with three wins on the bounce. The hosts also went into the game rested after their tie with Utrecht was postponed on Sunday.

Feyenoord started strongly with Tonny Vilhena having an effort cleared from the line in the first minute but Heerenveen grew into the game and Henk Veerman had a goal chalked off for a soft foul on Renato Tapia.

On 41 minutes, Feyenoord took the lead when Steven Berghuis got the ball on the edge of the box before rifling a left-footed strike into the top corner. The lead was short lived, though, with Veerman firing in the equaliser just before the break after a lucky deflection lifted the ball into his path.

Feyenoord pushed for the winner in the second half, but they found their former goalkeeper Warner Hahn in the way. The stopper made great saves to deny Karim El Ahmadi, Jerry St Juste and Jens Toornstra as Heerenveen held onto a point.

Feyenoord now drop to 6th while Heerenveen are 9th.
