Nicolas Tagliafico scored a calamitous own goal to add some excitement to an otherwise run-of-the-mill 5-2 victory for Ajax against Eredivisie bottom club Emmen.
With 29 minutes to go, a relaxed pattern of play found Tagliafico in the left-back position, but his ball back to André Onana flew straight past the hapless goalkeeper, who was powerless to stop the pass-turned-shot.
Emmen could not threaten a comeback and Ajax saw out the closing minutes to leapfrog title rivals PSV Eindhoven, who could reclaim top spot by beating PEC Zwolle on Thursday.
The 25-time Dutch champions are aiming to win their first league title or five years.
