The opening goal at De Kuip drew perhaps the loudest cheer of the season. Nicolai Jørgensen played in Jens Toornstra, who chipped Utrecht keeper David Jensen. There was a pregnant silence around the ground as the 45,000 plus crowd waited to see where the ball would end up. When it crossed the line the relief exploded out of them.

It was no surprise that Toornstra got the opener. The midfielder had opened the scoring at De Kuip on six occasions this season and all 14 of his season tally have come in home matches. Toornstra was one of Feyenoord’s danger men before the break, with a number of blocked shots and a free kick attempt that Jensen saved well. The Utrecht keeper also denied Steven Berghuis a couple of times.

With Jorgensen and Terence Kongolo back in the starting line-up Feyenoord racked up ten attempts on goal in total in the first half, dominating possession and territory. The visitors were a threat on the break, though, not least when Gyrano Kerk found himself one-on-one with keeper Jones on the half hour. Jones managed to divert the striker so far from the goal that he could only hit a post from an acute angle.

The shock woke Feyenoord up and the hosts took the initiative again, as they had after the opening goal. Feyenoord were clearly in control of the match, but leading only by the slenderest of margins, they had to be fully focused against against a side that had started the day fourth in the league and  refused to be brushed aside.

The tension evaporated ten minutes from time, when Eljero Elia doubled Feyenoord’s lead. The winger moved inside from the left flank before smashing a hard shot in that beat Jensen hands down, sailing into the top corner. The goal gave the hosts the breathing pace they needed and with the crowd in full voice Feyenoord safely played out the match to secure the three points, taking another vital step in the race for the title.
