Is this the biggest scoreline in Eredivisie and Ajax's football history? Can't imagine a 13-0 score in a top professional football league in Europe. I know Ajax is the best team in the country but how is it even possible to lose 0-13? Comical.

Scoreline is flattering. It could have gone either way.

Despite the scoreline the manager will take positives from the performance

Enjoyed the replies in this thread.

Also can someone please post the highlights as soon as they're available? Thanks.

I think the previous record was either 12-1 or 13-1.

Apparently, the previous Eredivisie record was Ajax beating Vitesse 12-1 in 1972.
I know nothing about the Dutch league. Are that VVV club that bad?

No idea what happened here. VVV has been in and out of the Eredivisie fairly regularly and is a potential relegation candidate every year, but they have actually been fairly stable and safe (if in the bottom half of the table) since they last got up. (Fourth season now since then.)

One of those days, I guess. Although it seems the VVV red card may not have helped. That was in the 51st minute at 0-4. It was 0-8 by the 57th minute...

Just a freak result then. I checked to see how many they'd conceded this season fully expecting them to be rock bottom so was surprised they were 10th and saw they had just come off a 2-2 late comeback draw away to AZ.

Yeah, they were on 9-9 goals so far this season.

AZ is weird though, three times in a row now that they were leading against a bottom half team, only to get a draw in the end. Not at last season's level.

The (Dutch) report in my newspaper now describes it as basically a tactical failure. That's why Ajax got to 0-4 already before the red card. There was no tactical reply to that either, and so: 0-13.

Saw goals, ref gave a soft Pen at 9 0, and Huntelaar scores it and then goes get the ball to take it back to the centre like they're behind in the game :lol:. Ruthless performance!

Freak game. You’d hope the VVV players aren’t too affected by it.

Maybe they'll do a Southampton and, erm, end up in the safe part of the bottom half again.

Only getting stuffed 6-1 by Spurs now seems a good result

:lol:

There's been PL games this year and last that could have quite easily hit double figures with more rub of the green, heck the Champions were lucky not to be hit for 10+, likewise the Barca/Bayern CL game where MATS actually played ok despite conceding 8.

That'll cause a fight in many leagues, saw him do that, completely classless

That’s a bad score for Dutch football. Only with a convincing performance against Atalanta will we save some face. Don’t even think Ajax is playing that well this season, thought the Liverpool game all in sll was a bit underwhelming as well, although obviously we should’ve got at least a point out of it. Antony is an amazing player though and Mohammed Kudus looked like a real baller as well. Shame the latter suffered a long term injury against Liverpool.

I don’t think that true at all

United conceded 22 shots against Spurs when they lost 6-1
Liverpool conceded 14 shots against Villa when they lost 7-2
Last season Southampton conceded 25 shots when they lost 9-0 to Leicester

Those shots conceded are in the normal range. VVV conceded 45 shots in that game! I’ve never seen that before in any game. It may have happened but it is exceptionally rare.

We had 39 (shots) against West Ham in 2014, and remarkably the game ended 0-0!

Final score: 0-0

Atalanta even outshot Ajax. Most extraordinary game in footballing history.
