Defending champions Ajax were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw with 10-man Vitesse Arnhem as they kicked off their Eredivisie campaign.

Erik Ten Hag’s side had to twice come from behind at the GelreDome on Saturday as Dusan Tadic rescued a point.

The former Southampton star struck with 15 minutes left after Matus Bero and Riechedly Bazoer had twice put the hosts ahead.

Donny Van De Beek grabbed the first equaliser for Ajax and Bazoer was dismissed with five minutes left for Vitesse.

Denzel Dumfries’ second-half leveller earned PSV a 1-1 draw at Twente. The right-back headed in after 65 minutes for last season’s runners-up.

Keito Nakamura had put the hosts ahead after eight minutes when he cut in from the left and fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the box after a flowing move.

Ajdin Hrustic’s late winner gave Groningen a 1-0 win at FC Emmen. The Australia forward struck from close range with three minutes left after Ramon Lundqvist’s pass.

Elsewhere, VVV-Venlo came from behind to beat RKC Waalwijk 3-1. Johnatan Opoku’s second-half penalty and Peter Van Ooijen’s late strike won it for VVV afrer Elia Soriano had cancelled out Hannes Delcroix’s early opener for Waalwijk.
