Feyenoord fans take matters into their own hands!

It's been a huge weekend of football around the continent and one of the biggest encounters came over in the Netherlands, with third placed Feyenoord taking on table toppers PSV Eindhoven at De Kuip. It was an important game for both sides and vital that the hosts won if they were to give themselves a chance of catching PSV in the race for the title, with them 13 points behind the leaders heading into this one. It was a tense, hostile match which saw Feyenoord race into a 2-0 lead after just 33 minutes, putting the visitors' unbeaten start to the season under serious jeopardy.

PSV's Steven Bergwijn pulled one back after 72 minutes to set up a nervy finish and you could tell it effected the Feyenoord players, who allowed the visitors to break straight from kick-off and get through on goal - which is where the controversy began. Bergwijn, fresh from scoring, looked set to add another before being brilliantly stopped by opposition no.1 Justin Bijlow but the rebound looked like it was going to fall kindly for someone in a navy jersey to slam home.

Before a PSV player could apply the final touch the Feyenoord supporters threw another ball onto the pitch, meaning the referee had to stop the action. It's pretty safe to say that the PSV players were NOT happy with the outcome of this and weren't afraid to direct their anger towards the ref.

It was a ridiculous sequence of events and it meant that PSV's unbeaten Eredivise came to an end, along with allowing the chasing pack to make up some ground on them - so all-in-all not a good day for the club.
