PSV Eindhoven reclaimed top spot in the table after a 2-0 home win over Twente Enschede.
Ajax took advantage of the reigning champions' recent slump to temporarily move to the summit with a 2-0 victory over NAC Breda on Friday night.
But PSV responded to Ajax throwing down the gauntlet by seeing off Twente, whose own title ambitions have now disappeared.
Jefferson Farfan was the difference between the two sides as he scored twice in the space of 60 seconds in the first half to give PSV a first Eredivisie win in five games.
RKC Waalwijk secured a vital 3-0 win at fellow strugglers Excelsior to boost their prospects of survival.
Tim Janssen was RKC's hero as he scored a second-half hat-trick to move his side to within one point of fourth-from-bottom Excelsior.
ADO Den Haag look doomed to relegation as the top-flight's bottom club slipped to a 2-0 home defeat to Roda JC Kerkrade.
Dave de Fauw opened the scoring three minutes into the second half and Marcel Meeuwis' penalty on the hour clinched the points for seventh-placed Roda.
