Ajax have a four-point lead over second-placed PSV Eindhoven, who beat Nijmegen 3-2, with one match remaining.

PSV missed the chance to cut the gap to two points last weekend when they conceded two late goals in a 2-2 draw at Feyenoord.

On Wednesday, Nicolas Tagliafico and Steven Berghuis calmed any home nerves by giving Ajax a two-goal lead.

Sebastien Haller, the league’s top scorer, netted a penalty before half-time to score his 34th goal in all competitions this season.

Brian Brobbey and Edson Alvarez added further gloss to the scoreline late on as Ten Hag’s final home game ended in celebration.
