El Ghazi scores twice as Ajax maintain winning Eredivisie start

ajax-den-haag

Anwar El Ghazi scored a brace for the third time this season as table-topping Ajax maintained the only 100 per cent record in the Eredivisie by defeating ADO Den Haag 4-0.

Forward El Ghazi bagged a double in each of the Amsterdam club’s first two fixtures and he took his tally to six in four games by starting and finishing the scoring in another comfortable win for Frank De Boer’s men.

The 20-year-old swept in first time to put Ajax ahead and finished off Arkadiusz Milik’s pull across to continue his purple patch. In between, captain Davy Klaassen rifled in a second 20 minutes in and Joel Veltman glanced home Nemanja Gudelj’s free-kick just before the hour.

That result gave De Boer’s side a three-point advantage at the top as Feyenoord slipped up for the first time this season in losing 3-1 at PSV.

They had gone ahead early on when Jeffrey Bruma turned Bilal Basacikoglu’s cross into his own net, only for Maxime Lestienne to coast in off the left wing to smash home an equaliser prior to the break.

PSV, who were placed in the same Champions League group as Manchester United this week, went ahead through Santiago Arias as he beat the offside trap and fired in a volley and they made sure of the victory when Jurgen Locadia converted a penalty late on.

Chelsea loanees Lewis Baker and Dominic Solanke were both on target in Vitesse Arnhem’s 4-1 success over Cambuur Leeuwarden.

Nathan, another borrowed from Chelsea, won an early penalty that Baker scored but he then struck the crossbar from 12 yards later in the game. Fortunately it had no impact on the overall result, even though Sander van der Streek rifled in a leveller, as Abiola Dauda slammed in a rebound to restore Vitesse’s lead before the break.

Guram Kashia headed in from a scrappy corner and Solanke came off the bench to round off a big win for the hosts.

Elsewhere, AZ suffered a 1-0 home loss to Roda JC, Australian Rostyn Griffiths’ header from a corner prior to the interval proving the difference.
