Eredivisie wrap: AZ stay top, Ajax maintain pressure

25 March 2012 19:49

Ajax recorded a crucial 2-0 win over Eredivisie title rivals PSV Eindhoven on Sunday, while AZ Alkmaar retained top spot.

Ismail Aissati and Siem de Jong netted at Amsterdam Arena as Ajax recorded their sixth straight win in all competitions.

Ajax remained second despite their vital win after AZ Alkmaar edged RKC Waalwijk to maintain their one-point advantage, while PSV are fourth.

Following an uneventful first half in Amsterdam, the encounter came to life after the interval.

Aissati opened the scoring in spectacular fashion in the 56th minute when the winger's cross-cum-shot curled into the top corner.

The Morocco international then helped Ajax net a second after being brought down in the area by a clumsy challenge from Brazilian Marcelo.

De Jong stepped up and sent Polish goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton the wrong way to make it 2-0 in the 63rd minute.

Elsewhere, Johann Gudmundsson netted a 49th-minute winner to see league leaders AZ Alkmaar to their 1-0 win against RKC Waalwijk at AFAS Stadion.

The Iceland forward tapped in a Jozy Altidore cross after goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet had failed to collect a cross from the American.

Meanwhile, Feyenoord recorded a comfortable 3-0 win at strugglers De Graafschap.

John Guidetti, Ruben Schaken and Sekou Cisse all netted in the comprehensive win as last-placed De Graafschap slumped to their seventh straight loss.

A late brace from Ninos Gouriye guided Heracles to a 3-1 victory at home to Utrecht.

The former Twente forward netted in the 80th and 86th minutes to help the hosts to the win at Polman Stadion.

Utrecht, who had earlier levelled when Cedric van der Gun cancelled out Samuel Armenteros' opener, finished the encounter with 10 men after Alje Schut was red-carded.
