AZ are the only team that can keep track with PSV. The side from Alkmaar claimed a 1-2 win over FC Groningen, who grabbed all three points themselves, away against Feyenoord in the Rotterdam Kuip last weekend. Van Galen opened the scoring for second-in-the-table AZ on 17 minutes. But when AZ defender Barry Opdam failed to collect a long ball, FC Groningen striker Salmon popped up in time to beat Timmer and scored the equalizer soon after the break. Yet AZ snatched victory, when Opdam made amends and headed home a Perez corner at the far post.Feyenoord again lost ground, following their 2-2 draw, away against sc Heerenveen. Things went Feyenoord’s way until the 73rd minute. Buffel and Kuijt had put their side 0-2 on top in the Abe Lenstra Stadium. But the hosts staged a brave fight-back and pulled one goal back, when substitute Samaras headed home a Yildirim free kick. Sc Heerenveen were back in the game and salvaged one point four minutes from final time when Yildirim scored from a trademark free kick.Ajax claimed an emphatic 4-1 win, at home over lowly RBC Roosendaal and have now leapfrogged over Feyenoord. The Amsterdam side are third in the Dutch league, having collected 28 points from their 14 games. Feyenoord have earned 27 points. PSV are still on top; they have collected 38 points and have a five-point lead over AZ, who have done very well this campaign so far. AZ have won their last nine domestic games in succession and are second in the table, having earned 33 points from their 14 league games.
