Young PSV earned a convincing 3-1 win over Young Ajax at De Herdgang sports centre on Monday night. The hosts scored all three of their goals before the break, but coach Anton Janssen's side failed to find the net in the second half. Young PSV are still on top of their league after the emphatic win over their Amsterdam counterparts.

Young PSV thoroughly deserved to win, with Jonathan putting in a commanding first-half man of the match performance. The young Brazilian was one of the first-team regulars that had been included in the Young PSV line-up, alongside John de Jong, Cássio Ramos, Fagner, Dirk Marcellis and Género Zeefuik. The latter played striker up front, partnering Jonathan, while Paul Voss provided the crosses from the left flank, with De Jong playing off the strikers. Young PSV were carving out the better chances and De Jong combined down the left flank to set up an opening goal for Jonathan on twelve minutes. Young PSV raised the tempo and when Jonathan was hacked down in the box, he calmly converted the resulting spot kick, scoring Panenka style, to the delight of the devoted home fans that packed the stands.

Zeefuik added a third goal on the stroke of half time, after Rochdi Achenteh had turned provider, supplying a perfect pass. Young Ajax, who had given a place to, among other players, Vurnon Anita, Javier Martina, the physically strong striker Mitchell Donald and left forward John Goossens in their starting eleven, produced hardly any goal threat and their defence constantly found themselves under pressure. The PSV forwards and Jonathan in particular were often the victims of Ajax's physical style of play in an at times ill-tempered game. PSV produced less danger in the second half and Jonathan, Voss and Zeefuik failed to capitalize by taking one of their chances. With fifteen minutes remaining, Martina scored a consolation with a low shot.
Young PSV line-up:
Cássio Ramos, Fagner, Marcellis, Van Eijden, Van Berlo, Achenteh, Neervoort, De Jong, Voss, Zeefuik, Jonathan (90, Hikspoors).
