The Hague: Ajax shook off their midweek Champions League heartbreak and recovered from falling behind to a first-minute goal on Sunday to beat Utrecht 4-1 and move to the brink of the Dutch title.

Othman Boussaid stunned the hosts, who were denied a place in the Champions League final on Wednesday by a 96th-minute goal when he fired Utrecht ahead after just 36 seconds at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Dusan Tadic sealed the win with two late goals, the second from the penalty spot, to push Ajax to the brink of a record 34th league title, the club's first since 2014.

Erik ten Hag's side are three points clear of PSV Eindhoven and have a far superior goal difference ahead of the final round of games after the defending champions lost 1-0 at AZ Alkmaar.
