Vitesse Arnhem edged out Utrecht 1-0 to go level on points with Ajax at the top of the Eredivisie.

With Ajax and PSV Eindhoven playing later in the week, Vitesse went into the game looking for a victory that would move them joint top of the league table.

It was Utrecht that went close first but Willem Janssen’s header went wide, before Vitesse had a goal disallowed by VAR.

In the 26th minute, Vitesse had the lead with Danilo Doekhi finding the net from Eli Dasa’s cross. The centre-back could have got another goal but Janssen got back to deny him.

Utrecht looked for an equaliser in the second half, but Gyrano Kerk was denied by Remko Pasveer in their best chance.

Vitesse held on for the victory that moves them second, one point above PSV and level with Ajax. Utrecht are 10th.
