NAC deny champions Alkmaar
A last-minute goal by Kees Kwakman earned NAC Breda a 1-1 draw at home to Eredivisie champions AZ Alkmaar.
The visitors were arguably the better side and looked set to claim all three points when Niklas Moisander put them in front with a quarter of an hour left. But Kwakman's late header rescued a point for NAC, who remain a point above AZ in seventh.
Heerenveen's dreadful away record continued as three goals in five minutes saw them crash to a 3-1 defeat at VVV Venlo. Ferry de Regt, Gonzalo and Sandro Calabro put VVV out of sight by the 16th minute.
Gerald Sibon grabbed one back from the penalty spot ten minutes from the break but it was far too little to prevent Heerenveen from suffering their ninth away defeat of the season. VVV move up to tenth in the table while Heerenveen remain 13th, having played a game more than their relegation rivals.
The match between NEC Nijmegen and Willem II was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
