The Dutch international led Erik Ten Hag's cadre to his eleventh triumph in the competition in which he has not yet been defeated. Van de Beek opened the scoring before the quarter hour at the end of a play initiated by Serbian Dusan Tadic.
Ajax, Valencia's rival in the Champions League, which last Tuesday tied at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, expanded his account in the 24th minute. Tadic took the ball to the net after a pass from Quincy Promes. He felt the crash before the break with the second goal of Donny Van de Beek, who finished a center of the Moroccan Zakaria Labyad.
The Utrecht, who arrived at Johan Cruyff Arena driven by three straight wins that had raised him to the top of the table, lacked reaction capacity. The second half lacked history until the Argentine Lisandro Martinez took advantage of a Hakim Ziyech assist to round the score.
While, the PSV accentuates its crisis. He fell in the field of Willem II (2-1). Three defeats and one draw summarize their last games. It is eleven points from Ajax.
