Pitchside Europe: Ajax’s spring surge brings title into sight

Rarely can a team have hit such scintillating form with such perfect timing. Since a shock 2-0 loss at home to FC Utrecht on February 5, Ajax’s record reads: played 10, won 10, scored 35, conceded four. The high point of that sequence was Wednesday’s 5-0 rout of 10-man Heerenveen, which saw Siem de Jong run in a hat-trick after Heerenveen goalkeeper Brian Vandenbussche was sent off in the third minute.”

This week’s Pitchside Europe¬†blog for Eurosport, on how Ajax have turned a crisis season into a successful title defence in the space of just two months, can be found here.
