AMSTERDAM — Lasse Schoene helped Ajax Amsterdam to a 3-1 win at AZ Alkmaar with a goal and an assist on Sunday.

Davy Klaassen scored first for Ajax on a pass from Schoene at 15 minutes before the hosts equalized through Steven Berghuis — after sloppy defending from Ajax — five minutes into the second half.

Schoene took matters into his own hands, going on a solo run and finishing cleanly for 2-1 in the 70th. Substitute Anwar el-Ghazi scored the third in the 90th.

PSV Eindhoven rode over NAC Breda 6-1 on Saturday while Feyenoord drew with 10-man SC Herenveen 1-1 on Friday.

PSV and Ajax face off in Eindhoven next weekend with outright first place at stake.
