Ajax's Lassina Traore celebrates one of his five goals in their 13-0 romp away to VVV in the Eredivisie Saturday

The previous record for most goals scored in an Eredivisie game was also held by Ajax when they beat Vitesse 12-1 in 1972

Ajax Amsterdam set an Eredivisie record when they scored 13 goals past a hapless VVV-Venlo side to move to the top of the standing Saturday, with seven different players getting their names on the score sheet.

The previous record for most goals scored in an Eredivisie game was also held by Ajax when they beat Vitesse Arnheim 12-1 in 1972.

Led by 19-year old Lassina Traore, who scored five times and assisted three more, Ajax dominated the contest and were already 4-0 up when Venlo were reduced to 10 men after skipper Christian Kum was sent off on Video Assistant Referee review for a high boot.

What followed was an eight-goal salvo in 24 second half minutes as Ajax’s players controlled possession and lined up to take shots on goal, with veteran 37-year old forward Klaas Jan Huntelaar also scoring twice in two minutes.

The visitor finished the match with an eye-watering 23 shots on target and could have scored more had Venlo goalkeeper Delano van Crooij not made 10 saves.
