STORY: Second-placed PSV Eindhoven lost ground on Eredivisie leaders Ajax when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Willem II in Tilburg on Saturday (November 21).

Following a minute of silence held to honour the victims of last week’s attacks in Paris, PSV were aiming to maintain pressure on leaders Ajax with a victory at third from bottom Willem.

They almost made the perfect start in the eighth minute when Jeffrey Bruma headed against the post, with Jorrit Hendrix’s powerful follow-up well tipped over the bar by Willem goalkeeper Kostas Lamprou.

Three minutes later, PSV took the lead in controversial circumstances when Gastin Pereiro chipped the ball into the net, despite the ball coming to him in an offside position from a rebound off team mate Luuk de Jong.

Willem hit back in the second half with two goals from Erik Falkenburg in the space of seven minutes.

Firstly, he headed in from a corner by Stijn Wuytens after 54 minutes and then he volleyed in following a flick on by Nick Van Der Velden.

With 13 minutes remaining, PSV drew level, when De Jong fired through a crowd of players from 15 metres.

With Ajax having won 5-1 against second-bottom Cambuur earlier on Saturday, PSV are four points behind with Feyenoord able to go above them if they beat Twente Enschede on Sunday (November 22).
