Neres and Tagliafico on scoresheet as Ajax cruise past PEC


Ajax won the Dutch Premier Division match against PEC Zwolle with considerable ease. With a final score of 0-2 Overijssel. David Neres and Nico Tagliafico scored for the Amsterdam team, strengthened their lead position due to PSV's loss of points.




"It was a straight-forward no frills victory", coach Erik ten Hag responded afterwards. "We ourselves didn't miss much, except for one chance at the start."

Ten Hag was referring to Devyne Rensch's mistake with a long ball. "Perhaps it is fair to say that we were just not one hundred percent sharp in the game. A match like today should end with a score of 0-5,  0-2 is just not enough."
