Dutch Competition

Ajax had an average season and ended in 6th position with 5 points from the new division champion ADO, whom also dropped quite some points. After round 14 Ajax had all of a sudden still a chance to keep ADO from the division championship, but with only 3 out of the possible 8 points in the remaning 4 games that remained to be an illusion.
