Leeuwarden, Netherlands (SportsNetwork.com) – Arkadiusz Milik scored on either
side of the intermission on Sunday as Ajax rolled to a 4-2 victory over
Cambuur Leeuwarden at the Cambuur Stadion.
Ajax were coming off a 2-0 loss to Barcelona in the Champions League in
midweek, and Cambuur took advantage of a sluggish Ajax early on as Sebastian
Steblecki gave his the hosts the lead after just two minutes.
But Milik got his first of the day in the 19th minute to pull Ajax level and
Davy Klaassen gave the visitors the lead four minutes later.
The second half was all Ajax as Milik completed his double on the hour mark
and Anwar El-Ghazi fired home his first goal of the season to widen the lead
to 4-1 with 12 minutes to play.
Bartholomew Ogbeche converted a penalty kick in stoppage time for Cambuur, but
it was too little, too late as Ajax claimed the points and remain in second
place in the Eredivisie with 26 points.
Also in the Dutch top flight on Sunday, Hakim Ziyech, Andreas Bjelland and
Youness Mokhtar found the back of the net to go with a own goal from Funso Ojo
as Twente rolled to a 4-0 thrashing of bottom-of-the-table Dordrecht.
PSV Eindhoven maintained a four-point lead atop the table on Sunday with a
last-gasp 2-1 win over Heracles at the Polman Stadion.
The home side opened the scoring through a goal from Brian Linssen in the 29th
minute, but PSV drew even in the 45th minute as Luuk de Jong fired one past
Heracles goalkeeper Dennis Telgenkamp.
Karim Rekik then buried the wining goal in the 90th minute to seal the points
for PSV and keep the club atop the league.
Sunday’s final Eredivisie fixture saw Vitesse and Feyenoord play to a
scoreless draw at the GelreDome.
