Last Updated: 12/04/15 8:33pm
Feyenoord moved a step closer to qualifying for the Europa League after consolidating third place in the Eredivisie with a 2-2 draw at Willem II Tilburg on Sunday.
Elvis Manu opened the scoring for Feyenoord just before the half-hour mark but the lead lasted just seven minutes before Freek Heerkens equalised.
Willem II went ahead through Bruno Andrade but that lead also did last long before Colin Kazim-Richards equalised to ensure Feyenoord moved to 58 points, seven more than fourth-placed Vitesse Arnhem.
The top two finishers in the Dutch league qualify to play in the Champions League while the third-placed team is guaranteed a Europa League berth. The teams finishing fourth to seventh play off at the end of the season for another Europa League berth.
Twente Enschede, docked a second batch of three points last week by the Dutch football association for financial irregularities, bounced back for a 3-1 victory over second-from-bottom Go Ahead Eagles.
Renato Tapia scored twice in the away success which keeps Twente in 11th spot, two points behind 10th-placed Groningen who beat SC Cambuur 3-2.
Groningen had to come back from 2-1 down after netting their eight own goal of the campaign. Brazilian defender Eric Botteghin's effort into his own net was the 29th overall of the season, a new record for the Dutch league.
Two late goals gave ADO den Haag a 2-0 win over Utrecht and allowed them to move clear of the relegation zone.
