PSV Eindhoven extended their lead at the top of the Eredivisie with a 5-0 romp over Utrecht.
Ronald Koeman's charges have found form with a vengeance in recent weeks and they were too good for Utrecht at the Philips Stadion.
Utrecht hardly helped their cause by conceding an own goal inside ten minutes, Robin Nelisse the unlucky player.
PSV needed no second invitation and Ibrahim Afellay and Jefferson Farfan netted before the interval to put the champions in control.
Arouna Kone made it four on 54 minutes and Farfan netted his second late on to cap a fine day.
Willem II heaped more misery on RKC Waalwijk with a 3-1 win.
Kevin Bobson netted a brace, while Frank van der Struijk scored a late third to deem Hans van der Haar's effort nothing more than a consolation.
Excelsior moved away from the relegation slots with a 6-1 win over Heracles Almelo.
Heracles actually took the lead on the night through Ramos Everton on 15 minutes.
The goal only served to sting Excelsior into action and they were in front at the break thanks to strikes from Jara Simr and Jos van Nieuwstadt.
Simr netted his second of the contest on 54 minutes, with the other goals coming from Sebastiaan Steur, the prolific Andwele Slory and Guilliano Grot.
