Feyenoord secure Dutch title with two games to spare




Feyenoord Rotterdam won the Dutch title with two games to go, thanks to two early goals in a 3-0 win over Go Ahead Eagles in Rotterdam on Sunday.

Rotterdam established an insurmountable lead at the top of the table, sparking wild celebrations in the port city as they won the championship for the first time since 2017.

Oussama Idrissi scored in the 15th minute, and Mexico international Santiago Gimenez added another three minutes later to all but secure the game and start the celebrations in the stands. Igor Paixao scored the game’s third goal nine minutes into the second half.

Feyenoord moved to 79 points from 32 games, out of the reach of nearest challengers PSV Eindhoven who play later on Sunday but who can only reach a maximum of 77 points if they win all three of their remaining matches.

Rotterdam have lost only one of their 32 league games played this season.

It was Feyenoord’s 16th title but only their second in the last two decades, emerging from the shadows of arch-rivals Ajax Amsterdam and PSV.
