Feyenoord beats PSV 2-0 to deny Ajax Dutch Eredivisie title for another week despite 3-2 win


AMSTERDAM — Feyenoord beat PSV in a league match in Eindhoven for the first time in more than 10 years Sunday to keep the Dutch Eredivisie title race alive for another weekend.

Feyenoord's 2-0 win meant Ajax's 3-2 victory over ADO The Hague was not enough to seal its fourth straight title and 33rd overall.

Ajax is still the odds-on title favorite as it leads second-place Feyenoord by six points with two matches to go.

Ajax took the lead in the 35th minute through Christian Poulsen's header, but ADO hit back almost straight from the restart thanks to Stefano Denswil's own goal.

Davy Klaassen put Ajax ahead again in the 69th and South Africa midfielder Thulani Serero sealed the victory in the 79th. Tom Beugelsdijk scored an extra-time consolation goal.
