Ajax sets goal difference record with a big win over Fortuna Sittard


Ajax scores strongly in the first weeks of the Premier Division. Visiting Fortuna Sittard, the team from Amsterdam won 0-5. After six matches, Erik ten Hag's team has a goal difference of +26; that is an all time record in the Premier Division.




"We invested and played at a high pace," said a satisfied Erik ten Hag after the 0-5 victory over Fortuna Sittard. "We had a great attitude, I'm happy with that. It was less about finishing off the chances; those hundred percent chances have to be there."

One of the stars was Noussair Mazraoui, who managed to score a goal, just as he had against SC Cambuur. "Mazraoui is an example for many," concludes Ten Hag. "He's in top shape at the moment and he's getting the most out of it. That's nice to see.
