Ajax suffers damage in race for title

Ajax sacrificed three costly points in FC Twente’s sold out Grolsche Veste stadium. The team from Amsterdam lacked the creativity that they needed in their game, and had no reply to Bryan Ruiz’s header goal: 1-0. Ajax’s hopes in the title race were thus damaged. League leader Twente, and challenger PSV were able to reinforce their stronghold on the top spots.
