AMSTERDAM (AP) -- Feyenoord beat 10-man AZ Alkmaar 3-1 in the Dutch league on Sunday to go level with Ajax and three points behind leader PSV Eindhoven.

Ajax drew against Roda JC Kerkrade 1-1 in Amsterdam while fourth-placed FC Twente was also held 1-1 at PEC Zwolle.

In a weekend of draws, PSV finished 2-2 at Vitesse on Saturday.

Feyenoord took control when AZ's Nick Viergever was dismissed for a violent tackle in the 67th at 1-1. Jordy Clasie put Feyenoord ahead in the 72nd and Tonny Vilhena added a third in the 90th.

Dusan Tadic scored early for Twente before Denni Avdic equalized with a late penalty.

Ajax went behind after Adil Ramzi scored six minutes before the interval but Daley Blind avoided an embarrassing home defeat with a 54th-minute equalizer.
