PSV were dealt a huge blow for the second week in a row. Last week, sc Heerenveen secured a win thanks to a last-minute penalty and on Sunday PSV dropped valuable points again when N'Kufo scored the equaliser for FC Twente in the last minute of injury time, cancelling out Balázs Dzsudzsák's opening goal.
FC Twente extend unbeaten run
PSV realised they would face a tough challenge in Enschede as the home side boasted an unbeaten run of fifteen games. FC Twente's pitch was severely damaged; replacing it with a new one took longer than expected, so the match was rescheduled and took place on Sunday instead of Saturday. PSV dominated proceedings but could not end FC Twente's impressive run. PSV will be next in action on Sunday when they take on Feyenoord at the Rotterdam Kuip.
First-half chances
PSV were the better side in the opening stages but could not create any meaningful chances. Twenty minutes were on the clock when the hosts had a great chance to open the scoring, but Tioté sent his effort wide. At the other end, goalkeeper Boschker did well to gather a fine cross from the right wing by Afellay. Ten minutes before the break, Toivonen found Méndez. Ecuadorian set up Dzsudzsák, who had his shot blocked by Boschker and Afellay failed to tap home the rebound. PSV keeper Isaksson was forced into action on the stroke of half time, when Bréchet miskicked an Arnoutovic cross. The hosts had a penalty shout denied by referee Luinge after Toivonen had unintentionally handled the ball.
Second-half goals
PSV started the second half brightly. Toivonen rounded Boschker, but could not connect with a team mate. Amrabat was cautioned for a foul on Braafheid, meaning he will miss next week's match at Feyenoord. Minutes later Tioté was lucky to receive only a yellow card for a wild challenge on Afellay. PSV made the deserved breakthrough in the 63rd minute. Méndez put Dzsudzsák clear and the Hungarian comfortably put the ball past keeper Boschker; 0-1. FC Twente went in search of an equaliser and Lodeweges brought on Bakkal, Maza and Nijland as PSV were made to defend deeply. In the very last minute of injury time, Elia managed to round his marker Kromkamp for the first time. Isaksson saved his shot, but the ball fell to N'Kufo who tapped home from close range; 1-1.
