Aug. 24, 2014
AMSTERDAM (AP) — PSV Eindhoven beat Ajax 3-1 Sunday in a come-from-behind victory against its Dutch league title rival.
It's the first time PSV has won a league match in Amsterdam since 2008.
Defending champion Ajax scored first as 19-year-old Anwar El Ghazi caught PSV goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet too far from his goal and headed the ball in over his reach.
Amsterdam held the lead through halftime and remained dangerous, but PSV proved more efficient on the counterattack.
At 52 minutes Memphis Depay leveled the score, and just over 10 minutes later Luciano Narsingh put PSV ahead.
Florian Jozefzoon scored the third shortly before full time.
PSV is tied for first with PEC Zwolle, which beat Vitesse 2-1.
In other matches, Feyenoord lost 2-1 at home to FC Utrecht.
