Freescoring forward Alfred Finnbogason struck a second-half hat-trick as Heerenveen beat RKC 5-2 in an incident-packed Eredivisie match on Friday night.
There was little sign of the entertainment to come as the half-time whistle blew with Heerenveen leading 1-0 through Kenny Otigba's 34th-minute strike.
But the match exploded into life after the break with six more goals, two penalties and a red card as Heerenveen, who had lost their previous three matches, moved into mid-table with their fifth win of the campaign while RKC remain rooted to the foot of the standings.
