Feyenoord remain top of the Eredivisie after two goals in stoppage time saw them earn a 3-3 draw at Utrecht.

kramer-fet-uuSpectators had barely taken their seat in the Stadion Galgenwaard by the time two goals had already been scored. In the first minute, Utrecht took the lead as Sebastien Haller finished off a cross from Nacer Barazite, but the lead didn’t last long before Dirk Kuyt volleyed in an equaliser.

The game settled after the quick start and only two chances came before the half time whistle, firstly Brad Jones denied Barazite, while at the other end Rick Karsdorp fired over.

Seven minutes into the second half, Utrecht regained their lead as Giovanni Troupee netted on the rebound after Jones saved Sofyan Amrabat’s strike. The home side were then dealt a big blow as goalkeeper Robbin Ruiter landed awkwardly on his head and shoulder before leaving the pitch on a stretcher, with reserve goalkeeper David Jensen taking his place.

Despite the setback, Utrecht seemed to seal their win on 84 minutes with Haller netting his second from close range after Jones could only parry Yassin Ayoub’s shot.

However, the injury to Ruiter meant there was nine minutes of added time added onto the game. In the 89th minute, Feyenoord pulled one back through Nicolai Jorgensen and then in the final seconds Michiel Kramer scored from a corner to complete a stunning comeback.

The point ensures that Feyenoord remain top on goal difference, while Utrecht are 7th.
