With the pressure on, manager Erik ten Hag went with his probable starting line up but the hero of the day was Jurrien Timber.

The 19-year-old scored his first senior goal for Ajax in the tenth minute which inevitably proved to be the match-winner.

Later on, Emmen proved to be a frustrating opposition for the hosts and kept the scoreline 1-0 by halftime.

However, the Dutch giants could taste the celebrations, along with their fans outside Amsterdam ArenA, and pulled out the goals in the second half.

Sébastien Haller, Devyne Rensch and Davy Klaassen all scored to secure the club it’s 35th league title.

With three matches left in the season, Ajax can still extend the gap at the top of the table over PSV in the coming weeks.
