VVV-Venlo 0-13 Ajax: Dutch champions run riot with NINE second-half goals as teen striker Lassina Traore bags FIVE in biggest hammering in Dutch top-flight history

  • Ajax were on the road on Saturday, travelling to face VVV-Venlo in the Eredivisie
  • The mid-table hosts survived 13 goalless minutes before their humiliation began
  • Jurgen Ekkelenkamp scored the first of four first-half goals for the visitors 
  • The floodgates opened after the 52nd minute when Christian Kum was sent-off 
  • They then added nine in the second-half, with Lassina Traore scoring five  

If ever the Eredivisie needed a reminder of Ajax’s dominance, the Dutch champions provided it on Saturday with a sensational 13-0 thrashing of 10-man VVV-Venlo. 

The hosts are only 10th in the Dutch first tier but were made to look like a pub team, going in 4-0 down at the break before a mind-blowing second-half. 

Venlo leaked nine goals after Jurgen Ekkelenkamp was sent-off in the 52nd minute, with Lassina Traore bagging five before half-time as Ajax recorded the biggest win in the league’s history.

Ajax broke their own record with the score-line, surpassing their 12-1 trouncing of Vitesse in 1972. 

The Amsterdam side had just 23 shots in the game, with Traore the stand-out performer with three assists alongside what was almost a double hat-trick. 

Erik ten Hag’s side now boast a staggering goal difference of 21 after the thumping, having also scored five in their last victory against Heerenveen. 

Traore also contributed three assists on a sensational day for the promising 19-year-old striker
