Dutch league leaders PSV Eindhoven stage a ruthless destruction of former European champions Feyenoord, running out 10-0 winners.

Dutch leaders PSV Eindhoven inflicted the heaviest ever defeat on former European champions Feyenoord with a 10-0 drubbing at the Philips stadium on Sunday (October 24).

PSV started quietly and only took the lead after 23 minutes, Brazilian Jonathan Reis striking a brilliant left footed shot past visiting goalkeeper Rob Van Dijk.

Feyenoord, traditionally one of the 'big three' clubs in the country and European Cup winners in 1970, were reduced to 10 men on 34 minutes when midfielder Kelvin Leerdam was sent off for his second yellow card offence.

Ibrahim Afellay struck the second in the 39th minute with a low shot which defender Bruno Martins helped into the net.

Feyenoord came out for the second half without an inkling of the deluge which was about to strike them.

Reis struck again for the third, running in unmarked to head Atiba Hutchinson's cross past Van Dijk two minutes after the break.

Afellay provided the cross for the fourth in the 49th minute, picking out Ola Toivonen at the far post and when Reis found Jeremain Lens in space five minutes later, the striker evaded two defenders before tucking the fifth goal past Van Dijk.

Reis had to wait only four minutes before claiming his third, running through to hit a low shot into the far corner from the edge of the area to make it 6-0.

Still PSV pressed forward and the seventh came in the 62nd minute. Lens passed square from the right wing, Toivonen dummied and Balazs Dzsudzsak had time to control before drilling a left footed shot into the far corner.

Orlando Engelaar made it 8-0 after 68 minutes when he rose following a corner to power his header in off the underside of the bar.

Referee Bas Nijhuis pointed to the penalty spot after Erik Pieters was fouled by defender Kamohelo Mokotjo in the 76th minute and Dzsudzsak cooly planted the spot kick past Van Dijk for the ninth.

Feyenoord's nightmare afternoon was completed with four minutes remaining when Dzsudzsak's cross bounced past three defenders and Lens thumped in a half volley from close range.

Feyenoord's previous worst defeat was an 8-2 loss to Ajax Amsterdam on Sept. 18, 1983.
