Feyenoord damage PSV title hopes
PSV Eindhoven's Eredivisie title hopes took a huge knock this afternoon with a 3-1 defeat at Feyenoord.
PSV remain three points behind leaders FC Twente with two matches remaining, but have also lost second spot in the table to Ajax, following their victory over Excelsior.
Fred Rutten's side made a positive start at De Kuip and Stanislav Manolev was unfortunate not to score after eight minutes when his drilled effort came back off the crossbar.
It was an early let-off for Feyenoord and they quickly created their first chance through Leroy Fer, who unleashed a powerful strike which was palmed away by goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson.
The opening goal followed after 27 minutes when Diego Biseswar crossed into the area for Wijnaldum to head home from a few yards out.
PSV pushed for an equaliser and were denied on the stroke of half-time by Erwin Mulder's tremendous save from Zakaria Labyad, who was kept out again by the Feyenoord goalkeeper at the start of the second half.
The frustration was beginning to show in the PSV team and Engelaar let it spill over after 53 minutes with a dangerous two-footed challenge on Castaignos which earned the midfielder a straight red card.
PSV rallied, though, and were back in the match seven minutes later. Labyad struck the right post with his effort but the ball came back out to Toivonen, who smashed a low shot into the bottom-right corner.
But they were back on level terms for just three minutes before Feyenoord restored their lead with Biseswar and Wijnaldum combining again for the latter to head in his second.
And the win was secured 11 minutes from time when Castaignos slid in to turn the ball home from six yards out.
