PSV Eindhoven scored two late goals to secure a thrilling 4-3 victory over Heerenveen in the Eredivisie on Sunday.
The visitors looked set to close to within two points of their third-placed opponents when Reza Ghoochannejhad completed his hat-trick 10 minutes from time.
But Marco van Ginkel made it 3-3 in the 89th minute and a minute later Hector Moreno grabbed an unlikely winner.
Goals from Davy Propper and Gaston Pereiro had earlier given PSV the lead while Pereiro missed a penalty that would have made it 3-2.
The result kept PSV within three points of Ajax and eight of Eredivisie leaders Feyenoord.
Ajax were also in action and Lasse Schone atoned for a missed penalty with a brilliant winner against Utrecht, securing a 1-0 victory.
Schone skied his 61st-minute spot-kick over the bar, and that looked set to be costly, but with seven minutes remaining the Dane struck with a superb half-volley from the edge of the box.
Strugglers Go Ahead Eagles and Excelsior drew 1-1 while two penalties from Gregor Breinburg gave NEC Nijmegen a 2-0 win over bottom side Roda JC.
