Match ends, NAC Breda 0, Ajax 8.
Donny van de Beek scored a hat-trick as Ajax thrashed NAC Breda 8-0 in the Dutch Eredivisie.
The Amsterdam side led 5-0 after 33 minutes through a Matthijs de Ligt double, Van de Beek's first two goals and a David Neres strike.
Lasse Schone scored a penalty, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar netted and 20-year-old Van de Beek, who had scored only one Eredivise goal before kick-off, got his third.
It fell short of equalling the largest Eredivisie away win, SC Enschede's 10-1 win at Sittardia in 1960.
The largest victory in the Dutch top flight is Ajax's 12-1 home win over Vitesse in 1972.
Ajax are five points behind leaders PSV Eindhoven, who play at PEC Zwolle on Sunday at 13:30 GMT.
