AZ had gone ahead early on through Ari Ferreira, but Jan Vertonghen equalised for Ajax midway through the half and the game turned just before the break when AZ´s Demy De Zeuw was dismissed for deliberate handball and Kenneth Perez scored the resulting penalty.
The second half saw Ajax totally dominate with two goals from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and strikes from Kennedy Bakircioglu and Leonardo sealing the win which moved them back up to second.
