PSV squander points drawing with VVV-Venlo
PSV have missed out on two points in a mad 3 – 3 draw with VVV-Venlo.
Before half-time, PSV, with Przemyslaw Tyton replacing Andreas Isaksson as goalkeeper, reigned supreme. They didn’t lose any time and soon Ola Toivonen and Dries Mertens stond scored two fine goals. Given the many chances PSV missed, VVV could only be relieved at the 2 – 0 score.
In the second half, however, VVV, who three weeks ago checked Ajax at 2 - 2, turned the tables on PSV within six minutes, during which Ferry de Regt with a header, Nigerians debutant Uche Nwofor with an impressive shot and Maya Yoshida with a splendid overhead kick brought the score to 3 - 2.
After that there were plenty of opportunities, but only Wilfred Bouma managed to sneak one more goal in.

On Saturday, Ajax took the lead of the table after their 2 – 3 away victory over Heracles Almelo.
Heracles soon took the lead thanks to a fine shot by Willy Overtoom. Just before half-time Ajax equalised thanks to Siem de Jong, who slightly altered the direction of a powerful shot by Miralem Sulejmani.
In the second half, De Jong scored a second goal, with Sulejmani netting the decisive third goal. Glynor Plet managed to bring the score to 3-2 but Heracles never came close to equalising, not even after Lorenzo Ebicilio’s stupid red card.
