pelle gPSV started the game well, and Adam Maher gave them the lead on 20 minutes, finishing well after a nice combination with Florian Jozefzoon.

However Feyenoord then took control, and were deservedly level in first half injury time thanks to a brilliant half volley from Jean-Paul Boetius, which flew into the corner.

Eight minutes into the second half, Boetius was pulled down in the box by Santiago Arias, and Graziano Pelle fired Feyenoord into a 2-1 lead from the spot.

Three minutes later Pelle was pulled down by Jeffrey Bruma, resulting in the defender being sent off for the 2nd time this week, and another penalty being awarded. However this time, Pelle missed the spot kick, with his shot coming back of the post.

The Italian made up for his miss by sealing Feyenoord’s win, as he was on the end of Jean Paul Boetius’s cross to make it 3-1 from close cool.

Feyenoord move up to fourth with the three points, and make up for their disappointing defeat to RKC last week. PSV have now gone six league games without a win, and need a swift turnaround if they are to get their title challenge back on track.
