PSV pegged back
PSV Eindhoven had their lead at the top of the Eredivisie cut to a single point as they were pegged back by a stoppage-time equaliser in their match with Sparta Rotterdam.
Otman Bakkal fired PSV in front at the Philips Stadion after 14 minutes and that looked to be enough to earn the leaders their 20th win of the season. But Rydell Poepon's left-footed strike in the third minute of stoppage time secured Sparta an unlikely 1-1 draw.
Second-placed Twente took full advantage of the result with a 1-0 victory over Willem II. Peter Wisgerhof's goal nine minutes after the interval was all that separated the sides and moved the Enschede club on to the coat-tails of PSV.
De Jong double for Ajax
Ajax consolidated third place with a 4-0 defeat of struggling Vitesse Arnhem. Siem De Jong scored twice for the Amsterdam club, with Luis Suarez's strike and a Paul Verhaegh own goal ensuring a comfortable win.
Vitesse are now just a point ahead of third-from-bottom Den Haag, who scored in stoppage time to claim a 2-2 draw at Feyenoord.
The Rotterdam club had come from behind with strikes from Georginio Wijnaldum and Jon Dahl Tomasson giving them the edge after Giovanni van Bronckhorst had put through his own net early on. But Danny Buijs headed home three minutes into stoppage time to secure Den Haag a welcome point.
