Ajax beats ADO The Hague 4-0 to go 3 points clear at top of Eredivisie as PSV beats Feyenoord


AMSTERDAM — Ajax beat ADO The Hague 4-0 Sunday to keep up its perfect start to the Eredivisie season and move three points clear at the top of the Dutch top flight.

Feyenoord, the only other team with a perfect record going into the weekend, lost 3-1 at defending champion PSV Eindhoven to slip to third place, behind Heracles Almelo on goal difference.

Winger scored Ajax's first and last goals. Midfielder and defender also scored for Ajax.

In Eindhoven, Feyenoord took an early lead through a own goal, but Maxime Lestienne equalized in the 37th minute. Five minutes after the break gave PSV the lead and Juergen Locadia completed the scoring when he converted an 81st-minute penalty.
