Eredivisie leaders PSV beat NAC Breda 5-1
PSV Eindhoven beat NAC Breda 5-1 on Saturday (31st March) to establish a 10-point lead at the top of the Dutch Eredivisie with five games to play - ahead of second placed Ajax's match at FC Groningen on Sunday (1st April).
PSV Eindhoven outclassed NAC Breda 5-1 on Saturday (31st March) to leave them two wins away from a third Dutch Eredivisie title in four seasons, and a 10th in 19 seasons.
PSV went into an early lead at the Philips Stadion after Luuk de Jong was wrestled to the ground by Pablo Mari in the Breda penalty area. The referee had no choice but to point to the spot and Marco Van Ginkel converted his 8th penalty of the season - 1-0 PSV.
After the break the hosts started to dominate - the attacks coming in waves. Minutes later, and against the run of play, NAC Breda made it interesting after a terrible back pass from Nicolas Isimat-Mirin - Sadiq making up for his error at the other end.
But the last period of the match was all about the champions-elect as PSV piled in three unanswered goals.
PSV were now ten points clear of second placed Ajax with five games to go. Ajax were scheduled to make a visit to FC Groningen on Sunday (1st April).
