PSV Eindhoven beats Heracles Almelo to stay top of Eredivisie


AMSTERDAM — Defender Karim Rekik scored in injury time to give PSV Eindhoven a 2-1 win at Heracles Almelo on Sunday that kept Phillip Cocu's team on top of the Dutch Eredivisie.

Bryan Linssen gave Heracles the lead on the half hour and Luuk de Jong leveled just before half time before Rekik's late strike sealed all three points.

Striker Arek Milik scored twice as Ajax won 4-2 at Cambuur Leeuwarden to stay second, four points behind PSV. Davy Klaassen and Anwar El Ghazi were also on target for Ajax.

FC Twente went third by beating last-placed Dordrecht 4-0, leapfrogging Feyenoord, which could only manage a goalless draw at Vitesse Arnhem.
