Ajax were brought back down to earth with a bump in the Eredivisie after being held to a 1-1 draw by lowly NEC Nijmegen.

Seven days after thrashing AZ Alkmaar 6-1, the Amsterdam club were unable to assert the same authority against NEC and found themselves a goal behind when Jeremain Lens struck in the 16th minute.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar restored parity in the second half but Ajax were unable to find a winner and remain three points behind leaders PSV Eindhoven, who also drew at VVV-Venlo.
