Mixed Europa League results for Dutch teams
Dutch champions FC Twente Enschede comfortably beat Zenit St. Petersburg 3-0 on Thursday, boosting their chances of progressing to the last eight of the Europa League. Luuk de Jong scored twice and Danny Landzaat netted the third.
Glasgow Rangers held Dutch League leaders PSV Eindhoven to a goalless draw at the Philips Stadium. The Scottish champions will have to abandon their defensive play during next week's return match in Glasgow if they want to go through to the Europa League quarter finals.
Ajax Amsterdam dominated virtually the entire match against Spartak Moscow, but the Russians scored early in the second half, thanks to a howitzer from playmaker Alex. Man of the match was goalkeeper Andriy Dikan who put in an outstanding performance.
