Ajax took over first place in the
Eredivisie on Sunday with a 3-0 home win against Zwolle, going one point clear
of both PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord.

PSV’s 2-1 defeat against Heerenveen on Saturday opened the door for the
Amsterdam outfit, who took full advantage against a Zwolle side battling
relegation.

The hosts took the lead in the 19th minute through Kolbeinn Sigthorsson and
Siem De Jong doubled the advantage in the 26th minute to put Ajax in firm
control.

Derk Boerrigter then capped the scoring 10 minutes from time with his fourth
goal of the season, returning the defending champions to the top spot.

Feyenoord has title ambitions of its own and the Rotterdam side moved to
within a point of first place with a 1-0 win at Roda courtesy of Graziano
Pelle’s goal in the 30th minute.

Utrecht earned a 1-0 victory at home against RKC Waalwijk when Jacob Mulenga
scored the lone goal in the 78th minute, while Vitesse strengthened its hold
on fourth place with a 1-0 win at Twente as Wilfried Bony scored his league-
leading 24th goal of the campaign in the 63rd minute.
