PSV Eindhoven defeated Heerenveen 8-0 in Friesland and now must wait to see if they have secured the Eredivisie title.

PSV Eindhoven went into the game knowing a win would secure them the title, should Feyenoord fail to win away in Deventer against Go Ahead Eagles later on Thursday.

PSV wasted no time and found themselves 3-0 up within the first eleven minutes. Guus Til got the first before Malik Tillman got a swift double. The second saw the midfielder squeeze the ball in from a tight angle despite being sat down.

Til made it 4-0 before Joey Veerman steered in a fifth with a low strike from the edge of the box. That was PSV’s 100th league goal of the campaign.

Heerenveen had a goal disallowed early in the second half before Johan Bakayoko made it 6-0 with an excellent strike into the top corner.

Luuk de Jong got the seventh and Patrick van Aanholt the 8th as PSV coasted to a simple victory.

They now wait to see what happens with Feyenoord but it is now almost certain that PSV will lift the Eredivisie title.
