Ajax thrash ten-man ADO
Ajax cruised to an easy 4-0 win over ADO Den Haag after the visitors were forced to play 80 minutes with ten men at the Amsterdam ArenA.
Ramon Leeuwin was shown a straight red card for a two-footed tackle on Christian Eriksen after ten minutes and his team-mates never looked like getting something out of the game.
The key moment of the game came when Leeuwin was sent off, before Eriksen opened the scoring after collecting a pass from Nicolas Lodeiro and firing into the bottom corner.
However, Ajax were surprisingly unable to make their numerical superiority count further in the first half, with Vurnon Anita seeing a shot saved by Gino Coutinho and Sulejmani curling another effort over the bar.
ADO's first real chance came on 47 minutes but Tjaronn Chery's shot was saved by Kenneth Vermeer and it was Ajax who finally extended their lead on 58 minutes when Janssen collected Sulejmani's pass before shooting beyond Coutinho.
That put the result beyond doubt and it was no surprise when substitute Bulykin scored the home side's third five minutes after coming on, while the same player then backheeled the ball to Sulejmani to set up the fourth five minutes from the end.
