Eredivisie leaders PSV Eindhoven survived a scare at bottom club RBC Roosendaal to win 2-1 - with the home side relegated as a result.
The Dutch champions went 1-0 down on the half hour when Ebou Sillah scored to give RBC a glimmer of hope.
However, two goals in six second half minutes were enough to give PSV victory as Ibrhaim Afellay (60) and Alex (pictured, 66) scored.
The win means that PSV could be crowned champions on Tuesday, should second place AZ Alkmaar fail to win against NAC Breda.
Second from bottom Willem II made sure they could not be caught anyway after their 1-1 draw at Den Haag.
Moussa Dembele (74) looked to have given Willem victory, but Roy Stroeve pounced in injury time to give Den Haag a share of the spoils.
Heracles moved five points clear of the relegation play-off spots after a 1-0 win over rivals Sparta Rotterdam - who remain third bottom and look destined for the end of season battle against the drop.
The only goal came just before the interval from Kwame Quansah.
NEC Nijmegen closed on the top seven with a comfortable 4-1 win over sixth-placed Heerenveen.
Lars Nilsson actually gave The Frisians the lead on 17 minutes, but NEC levelled on the stroke of half time through Andrezj Niedzielan.
NEC took charge in the second half and romped to victory thanks to Patrick Pothuizen (66 pen), Romano Denneboom (71) and Guilliano Grot (86).
