STORY: Ajax Amsterdam restored a three-point lead at the top of the Dutch league with a 2-0 win at recent nemesis PEC Zwolle on Sunday (November 29).

Ajax missed several chances before they went ahead courtesy of a slip from PEC goalkeeper Kevin Begois that allowed Amin Younes to score before halftime and they added a second near the end from substitute Thulani Serero.

PEC have proved a tough opponent in recent times for Ajax, including beating them in last year’s Dutch Cup final, but it was a comfortable win for the former European champions on Sunday.

They are now on 35 points from 14 matches above second-placed Feyenoord who had joined them at the top after a 4-2 derby win over Excelsior Rotterdam on Saturday.

Champions PSV Eindhoven enjoyed a 3-0 victory over AZ Alkmaar to move to 31 points.

Fourth-placed Heracles Almelo lost ground on the leaders as they went down 4-2 at Utrecht.
