Description

The 33rd Matchweek was very exciting as there was still plenty at stake in the penultimate round of this season's Eredivisie

Ajax 3-0 Almere City
Ajax comfortably beat Almere City 3-0 to keep their hopes alive for a direct spot in next season's Europa League. Steven Bergwijn was the standout performer, scoring a hat-trick that included a game-changing volley and a sensational solo effort, which might be a contender for goal of the season. Ajax's performance, especially in the first half, underscored their determination to secure a European spot as they dominated the game, scoring three times in just nine minutes.

NEC 2-3 Feyenoord
Feyenoord had to battle hard against NEC to secure a 3-2 victory. Calvin Stengs opened the scoring just before half-time, and despite NEC equalizing early in the second half, Feyenoord regained control with goals from Yankubah Minteh and Ayase Ueda. This win was crucial for Feyenoord as they helped Ajax by ensuring NEC couldn't secure a spot in the Europa Conference League playoffs without further contests. Feyenoord's ability to pull through in a tightly contested match highlighted their resilience and form, which has seen them unbeaten in 24 matches across all competitions.

Go Ahead Eagles 0-3 AZ
AZ continued their pursuit of a Champions League spot with a convincing 3-0 win over Go Ahead Eagles. Ibrahim Sadiq scored early and was involved in the second goal, which Sven Mijnans finished neatly. Myron van Brederode sealed the victory with a late goal, marking AZ's fourth straight win. This result keeps them in the hunt for the Champions League, adding pressure on their competitors as the season nears its conclusion.

Fortuna Sittard 1-1 PSV Eindhoven
PSV's visit to Fortuna Sittard ended in a 1-1 draw, which saw PSV's title celebration momentum slightly dip, though they were already crowned Eredivisie champions. Fortuna took the lead through Inigo Cordoba, and despite a lively effort from PSV, they only managed to equalize in the late stages through Jerdy Schouten. This draw ended PSV's chance to match the Eredivisie record points total, but they remain a dominant force in Dutch football with an impressive unbeaten streak.

RKC Waalwijk 1-1 PEC Zwolle
A tightly contested game where both teams had to settle for a draw, leaving RKC just above the relegation zone.

FC Twente 7-2 Volendam
An explosive match with Twente overwhelming the already relegated Volendam, highlighted by Sem Steijn's hat-trick.

Utrecht 0-1 Sparta Rotterdam
Sparta clinched a narrow win thanks to Camiel Neghli's strike, complicating Utrecht's hopes for a higher playoff spot.

Heerenveen 1-3 Vitesse Arnhem
Despite already being relegated, Vitesse showed spirit and secured a win against Heerenveen, with Marco van Ginkel scoring crucial goals.
