Ajax needed a success to validate their coronation. Nicolas Tagliafico (19th), Steven Berghuis (33rd) and Sebastien Haller, on penalty for his 21st goal of the season (38th), put the Lancers on the right track in the first period. Brian Brobbey (85th) and Edson Alvarez (90th) sealed the score at 5-0 in the second half.
With 82 points, the Ajacides can no longer be joined by PSV Eindhoven, who remain 4 lengths after their 3-2 victory over NEC Nijmegen.
Ajax retains its title won in 2021 and offers itself a third coronation in four years, when the 2020 season was stopped due to the coronavirus without the title being awarded.
This new coronation ends the Erik ten Hag era in the best possible way. The 52-year-old coach, who arrived in December 2017, will take charge of Manchester United next season.
Beaten in the cup final by PSV, the Amsterdam club will not however achieve the double as in 2019 and 2021
Celtic claim a 52nd Scottish league title
Celtic won their 52nd Scottish football title after a 1-1 draw at Dundee United on Wednesday during the 37th day.
One point was enough for the troops of Ange Postecoglou to validate their title. Georgios Giakoumakis (53rd) put Celtic on the right track. Dylan Levitt (72nd) equalized, but it didn’t change anything for the title
With 90 points, Celtic are 4 points ahead of Rangers, 4-1 winners of Ross County, with only one day left to play.
The ‘Bhoys’ thus recover a title left last year to the Rangers after nine coronations in a row.
