FC Twente and Ajax off to a good start
At the start of the second half of the Premier League season, FC Twente beat Heracles Almelo 5-0, while the Ajax defeated its archrival Feyenoord 2-0 score in a lack-lustre game.
FC Twente has narrowed the gap separating it from leader-of-the-pack PSV to just one point. Ajax beat FC Groningen and is now in third position, three points away from its Eindhoven competitor. Feyenoord remained in 13th position and Heracles in 14th.
AZ solidified its 5th place by playing NEC to a 2-2 draw. FC Utrecht rose to eighth position by defeating degradation-candidate VVV-Venlo 1-2.
