A dominant second-half gave Ajax their 35th Eredivisie title as they won 4-0 winners against Emmen in Amsterdam.
Dusan Tadic put the home side in front at the ninth minute into the game, the Drenthe side held firm until Sebastian Haller slotted home a second just after the hour mark. Devyne Rensch and a diving header by Davy Klaassen wrapped up the scoring.

The silver plate was presented to the players in an empty Johan Cruyff Arena and later held aloft from a window to thousands of fans who had massed outside the stadium. The traditional celebration on Leidseplein was banned by the city council because of coronavirus restrictions.
All 18 clubs had something to play for with four matches of the season left. AZ Alkmaar closed the gap on second-placed PSV to a point after coming from behind to win 3-1 at RKC Waalwijk.
PSV were left ruing missed chances after they turned around a 1-0 deficit at home to Heerenveen with two goals in a minute from Yorbe Vertessen and Cody Gakpo. But the lead lasted just 75 seconds as veteran midfielder Lasse Schöne ghosted through the PSV defence and set up Siem de Jong for the equaliser.
