AJAX are just to wins from claiming the clubs 35th Dutch League title. 

After a 1-0 win against RKC Waalwijk where the team from Amsterdam dominated the match but clearly a hard time to get into second gear. Haller´s goal, flicking the ball over RKC goalie Kostas Lamprou in the first half was the highlight of the game. A beautiful goal no doubt and needed for the fans watching the game. RKC best chance to equalize came on a free-kick when Cyril Ngonge hit the bar.

Worth to notice was Ajax´s inability to create chances considering their possession of the ball and Ajax coach Erik Ten Hag confirmed;

- We started the game well, but then we got grit in out engine. We didn’t use the possession we had, particularly in the last third of the pitch, and created far too few chances.

Ajax is still 11 points ahead of PSV Eindhoven who also won their last game against VVV Venlo with 2-0. AZ is on level points with PSV after beating Sparta with the same result.
