Ajax became the first team to score 13 goals in a single Eredivise game with a thumping 13-0 win over VVV-Venlo.

Erik ten Hag’s side bounced back in remarkable style following their midweek defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League, beating their own record from 1972 when they thrashed Vitesse 12-1.

Lassina Traore particularly enjoyed himself against the most accommodating of hosts, becoming the first Ajax player to score five goals in an Eredivisie game since Marco van Basten in 1985 and the first to record three assists for the club in a league match since Frenkie de Jong in 2017.

That stunning display meant the Burkina Faso striker became the first player this century to be directly involved in eight goals in a Eredivisie match.

Venlo, who had Christian Kum sent off with the score at 4-0, are left to reflect on their biggest ever defeat in a professional game, with their previous heaviest loss a 10-1 reverse to PSV in 1964.
