The champion of the 1971 / ’72 season puts an unparalleled gala performance on the mat against relegant Vitesse, who sees all corners of the field.
Striking is the small number of spectators who have bothered to come to De Meer for the last league match of the season (6,000), in which the players of Ajax necessarily want to break the limit of one hundred goals and secure the top scorer title of Johan Cruijff. Both goals are achieved, as in this super season of Ajax everything that the Amsterdammers touch turns into gold, resulting in a triple.
With four goals by Cruijff, hat tricks by Johan Neeskens and Dick van Dijk, who left for Nice, and goals by Gerrie Mühren and Barry Hulshoff, the scoring drive of the players of Ajax against poor Vitesse only ends at 12-1. That has been the biggest victory ever in the Eredivisie for 48 years.
