Feyenoord end season with injury-time win

Feyenoord wrapped up the season in satisfying fashion at Heerenveen on Sunday. Head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side finished strongly in Friesland, claiming a 3-2 win, their eighth successive victory in the Eredivisie. Club top scorer Steven Berghuis (2) and Bilal Basaçikoglu grabbed the goals.

Feyenoord end season with injury-time win

Steven Berghuis still had a chance to finish the season as the league’s highest scorer going into the final match of the season. The forward had 16 goals, two behind leader Alireza Jahanbakhsh. That was one of the motivations for Feyenoord going into the game after already having secured a fourth place finish.

Berghuis decisive
So it was perhaps unsurprising that it was Berghuis who opened the scoring on 11 minutes. Keeper Justin Bijlow found Kevin Diks with a perfectly measured long ball and the right back played it to Berghuis. He rounded off a short dribble with a hard shot that was never going anywhere but into the back of the net.

With one in the bag Berghuis showed he was hungry for more. But he had little fortune in front of goal. On 28 minutes he hit a post, then three minutes later he was foiled by sc Heerenveen keeper Martin Hansen (a shot on the rebound and after a free kick).

The second goal did eventually come for Berghuis on 41 minutes though. Berghuis started the move himself. Diks and striker Dylan Vente were both involved with the ball eventually returning to Berghuis. He swept it in from close range to double his tally and keep the pressure on at the top of the Eredivisie scoring charts.

With Feyenoord two-up it long looked like the win was in the bag. Van Bronckhorst brought on Robin van Persie and Bilal Basaçikoglu for Vente and Jean-Paul Boëtius, as the visitors looked to extend their lead, but the biggest opportunities were for the hosts.

Crazy end
Arber Zeneli and Reza Ghoochannejhad both hit the side netting with individual efforts but the hosts pegged one back on 79 minutes through Jordy Bruijn. He slid it in from Zeneli;’s cross. A minute later it was all level. Jan-Arie van der Heijden got himself in trouble from a Denzel Dumfries, netting in his own goal.

The hosts almost completed the turnaround on 83 minutes. Referee Makkelie awarded a penalty for a foul by Ridgeciano Haps. Zeneli stepped up to the spot, but Bijlow was up to the task, saving the effort to keep Feyenoord level.

Feyenoord then showed spirit to haul the game back into their favour. Basaçikoglu grabbed a winner against his former club in time added on with an impressive drive. It was a fittingly exciting end to a crazy last quarter of an hour or so at the Abe Lenstra Stadium.
