Ajax has Sunday no damage sustained in the battle for the title in the Eredivisie. The Amsterdammers won on a visit to Sparta Rotterdam is fairly simple, with 2-5.

Ajax came on a 1-0 deficit by a goal from Michiel Kramer, but then went still at the longest end, thanks to hits of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Lasse Schöne, Justin Kluivert and Hakim Ziyech (two times).

The team of trainer Erik ten Hag narrowed by the victory, the gap with leader PSV back to seven points. The Locals were Saturday already in own home with 3-0 too strong for VVV-Venlo.

Sparta remained with 21 points in the sixteenth place, and seems with Roda JC (twenty points) and FC Twente (nineteen points) if he is to make it directly relegated to the Jupiler League.

Ajax has not started well in the match against Sparta. The team of trainer Erik ten Hag had a veldoverwicht, but gave up when losing the ball plenty of space and the home club a few times dangerous.

One of those moments resulted in the twelfth minute, almost the 1-0. Robert Mühren had the ball after a great ball from Thomas Verhaar for the wire, but the attacking midfielder came close on goalkeeper Andre Onana.


Twenty minutes later, took Sparta, however, still in the lead. Kramer took advantage with a corner kick from Soufyan Ahannach of moderate rid of Lasse Schöne and headed the ball at the second pole in detached position behind the stray Onana.

Ajax seemed to finally wake up geschokken and brought no more than a minute after the still in strong position to the position again in balance. This time it did Schöne in a positive sense of themselves, by David Neres road to cross, which, in turn, Huntelaar is a not to miss opportunity.

Ajax had the rest also have to go in with a 1-2 lead, but the arbitration adopted wrongly the entire rebound from Maximilian Wöber on a header from Huntelaar off due to offside.

That decision came in the amsterdam eventually not be expensive because in the opening stages of the second half there was still things made by to walk to 1-4.

At first it was Real that a free-kick from twenty yards in the top corner shot, and then Kluivert (intikker in reference to Donny van de Beek) and up to two times Ziyech (amazing curl into the far corner and free-kick) all the calls about Sparta settlement.

The comfortable margin gave Erik ten Hag to the opportunity to captain Joel Veltman, who, like last week in the 4-1 win at home against sc Heerenveen, to the substitute bench was replaced by Rasmus Kristensen, another twenty minutes to participate.
