Ajax edge arch-rivals Feyenoord in Dutch derby

Ajax beat Feyenoord 1-0 at the Johan Cruijff Arena in the match known as the Klassieker on Sunday

Amsterdam giants Ajax beat bitter-rivals Feyenoord 1-0 on Sunday to stay top of the Dutch league in hotly-contested game in an empty Johan Cruyff Arena.

Erik ten Hag's Ajax went ahead in the 22nd minute through 18-year-old midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who finished with a slick left-footed shot.

The result leaves Ajax top with 41 points, three ahead of Vitesse Arnhem in second with PSV Eindhoven third on 37 and Feyenoord fourth on 35.
