PSV were visibly nervous, especially at the back, where they were without Jeffrey Bruma, and Go Ahead Eagles extended their lead on 25 minutes. Winger Jeffrey Rijsdijk was allowed way too much space on the right hand side of the box, and his cutback was fired into the net by Erik Falkenburg.

Rijsdijk should have made it 3-0 before the break, but after being played through on goal, Jeroen Zoet pulled off a great save.

The game then completely changed on 48 minutes, as Falkenburg missed a point blank header to make it 3-0, and straight from the goal kick PSV made it 2-1. Memphis Depay netted his 2nd stunner in two games as he rifled into the top corner from just outside the box.

PSV then swarmed the Go Ahead box, and Jurgen Locadia smashed into the net from close range to equalise on 67 minute after great work from Ji Sung Park.

The game was heading for a draw, but in the 9oth minute, Santiago Arias burst down the right before sending a low cross into the box for Bryan Ruiz to net from close range.

A great comeback from Phillip Cocu’s men and they remain in with a chance of a top three finish.
