Ajax draws 1-1 at Vitesse, Feyenoord beats RKC

AMSTERDAM (AP) — Ajax came from a goal down to draw 1-1 at Vitesse Arnhem on Sunday, but remained on track to win its fourth consecutive Eredivisie title.

Ajax fell behind in the 25th minute to a Bertrand Traore goal before Iceland striker Kolbeinn Sigthorsson equalized two minutes after halftime. Feyenoord ensured the title race will continue until at least next weekend by beating RKC Waalwijk 2-0, thanks to a brace from Graziano Pelle on the Italian striker's return following a four-match suspension.

With three matches to play, Ajax is six points ahead of second-placed Feyenoord. Third-placed FC Twente beat NAC 2-0 in Breda on Saturday.
