Painful reverse for Feyenoord at De Kuip

Feyenoord suffered defeat at the hands of Willem II on Saturday evening as the visitors ran out 3-2 winners. Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team led twice, but away striker Alexander Isak won the game for the Tilburg side on 69 minutes.

The opener came just ahead of the half hour and it was a corker. Steven Berghuis chipped the ball over Willem II keeper Timon Wellenreuther and into the top right-hand corner. That gave Feyenoord a deserved lead, but the hosts were not able to enjoy it for long.

Five minutes later Freek Heerkens equalised for Willem II. The defender smashed home after the ball landed at his feet. Feyenoord would lose a second lead within five minutes after the break. Eric Botteghin’s header was cancelled out by a Fernando Lewis drive from distance that went in at the left-hand corner of the goal.

The pattern was broken on 69 minutes when Willem II scored the fifth goal of the evening. Alexander Lewis wandered in from the left, beating Ridgeciano Haps and Eric Botteghin before finishing deftly. Feyenoord thought they had levelled through substitute Nicolai Jørgensen, but his goal was ruled out by VAR as Willem II claimed all three points.
