THE HAGUE, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- PSV captured the first position in the Dutch Eredivisie by beating rivals Ajax 4-0 on Sunday, while former league leaders PEC Zwolle lost 3-0 to Vitesse.
Tim Matavz opened the scoring in the 53rd minute after a mistake by Ajax goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer. Jetro Willems added a second goal with a shot deflected by Niklas Moisander. Oscar Hiljemark made it three with a beautiful strike and Park Ji-Sung produced the fourth goal in the 68th minute.
