Edson Álvarez played the match in which Ajax defeated AZ, and that puts him as virtual champion in the Eredivisie
HOLLAND — Edson Alvarez and Ajax are on the verge of being Eredivisie champions after this Sunday’s 2-0 win over the AZ Alkmaar. The ‘Machín’ and his teammates are leaders of the general table in the Dutch league with 76 points and are 12 behind PSV Eindhoven.

In the event that the following week the Amsterdam team draws against Emmen, that will be enough for them to be crowned once more, after last season was canceled without defining a champion despite the fact that they were leading.
