Excelsior's miserable start to the season continued after going down 3-0 at AZ Alkmaar.
The Kralingers arrived at DSB Stadion without a point to their name and they fell behind to Kemy Agustein's 24th-minute opener.
The killer blow arrived on the stroke of half-time with Gretar Steinsson adding a crucial second for AZ a minute into injury-time.
Demy de Zeeuw's third shortly after the interval compounded a miserable night's work for Ton Lokhoff's troops.
However, the win for Louis van Gaal's AZ moves them level at the top with four other sides, although they have played a game more than their rivals.
