pelle fDordrecht currently top the Eerste Divisie, and were expected to give Feyenoord a tough game, but the Eredivisie sides class shone through.

Graziano Pelle was wasteful in the opening period, with the often clinical Italian striker heading over the bar from close range, when in space.

However Pelle did open the scoring on 36 minutes, when he fired into the bottom corner, after a good cross from midfielder Lex Immers on the right.

Dordrecht had no answer, and Erwin Mulder was hardly troubled in the Feyenoord goal, as the Rotterdam side doubled their lead in the second half.

On 63 minutes, Ruben Schaken beat a number of defenders before excellently firing into the bottom corner, to make it 2-0.

In the final minute, Samuel Armenteros netted the third with an excellent finish, to give the forward his first goal since joining on loan from Anderlecht in January.

A simple victory for Ronald Koeman’s side, and they should be looking forward to a lengthy stay in the competition.

Elsewhere Wilhelmina 08 saw off SWZ 3-1, and EVV won their place in the fourth round by beating De Treffers 1-0.
