The Eredivisie, the top division of football in the Netherlands, saw the game between Ajax and Feyenoord getting suspended as a result of Feyenoord's 3-0 victory over Ajax on the road. After furious spectators hurled flares onto the field, the referees made the decision to stop the game.
Ajax was upset as Feyenoord quickly jumped out to a three-goal lead after 37 minutes. There were apparently three occasions when fans threw flares and other objects onto the pitch in an effort to stop play.
In the ninth minute, Santiago Gimenez scored the game's first goal, and nine minutes later, he added his second. Igor Paixao, an opponent of Celtic's from the previous week who Gustaf Lagerbielke brought down in order to receive a red card, scored the third goal, with Gimenez providing the assist, which prompted Ajax supporters to react in light of their dismal league position.
A flare was launched onto the pitch just before halftime from the stadium's F-side area. The Ajax hooligans make up the F-side. However, the game was resumed once more until the F-side tossed a further two flares onto the playing field, forcing the authorities to call timeout. The KNVB will now discuss how the remaining portions of this game will be conducted. Ajax will host FC Volendam in a second home game in three days.
