An Eredivisie table-topping match between first place PSV Eindhoven and second place Ajax went the way of PSV on Sunday, the home side using an entirely dominant opening 35-minute period to build a resounding three-goal lead thanks to strikes from Gaston Pereiro, Luuk de Jong and Hirving “Chucky” Lozano.
Lozano played 87 minutes in the match (fellow Mexican Erick Gutierrez appeared as a substitute in the 70th minute) and took his league tally to five goals in six matches (to go along with two in the Champions League). The 23-year-old’s legend continues to grow at the Philips Stadion.

And the El Tri winger wasn’t the only CONCACAF representative doing work in the Netherlands this weekend — USMNT striker Andrija Novakovich scored a brace for Fortuna Sittard yesterday, giving him four goals on the young season.
