Eredivisie round-up: AZ in contention for European spot
Last Updated: 26/04/15 8:23pm
AZ Alkmaar remain in contention to clinch the automatic Europa League spot in the Eredivisie with a 2-0 win at FC Twente on Sunday.
Wesley Hoedt and Aron Johannsson were the men on target in the first half, and the visitors held on for victory despite the 70th-minute dismissal of Nemanja Gudelj.
The result saw John van den Brom's fourth-placed side move three points behind third-placed Feyenoord with two games of the regular season remaining.
Feyenoord could only manage a 1-1 draw at FC Groningen on Sunday, Jordy Clasie's 27th-minute opener cancelled out on the stroke of half-time by Tjaronn Chery.
The Rotterdam outfit could not find a second goal, and had salt rubbed in the wounds when they lost substitute Khalid Boulahrouz to a last-minute red card.
Ajax, already assured second place behind champions PSV Eindhoven, were also held to a 1-1 draw - and needed a 90th-minute equaliser from substitute Kolbeinn Sigthorsson to salvage a share of the spoils at PEC Zwolle, who had taken a 49th-minute lead through Jesper Drost.
Also in the Dutch top flight on Sunday, relegated FC Dordrecht drew 0-0 at home to Cambuur Leeuwarden.
