PSV Go Dutch

The season in Holland's Eredivisie concluded today with PSV Eindhoven claiming their fourth title in a row and seventh of the decade. Needing only a point on the final day to clinch the title, PSV posted a 1-0 win at Vitesse Arnhem to win the league by three points over rival Ajax Amsterdam and earn qualification into the group phase of next year's Champions League.

The league's second-fifth placed teams, Ajax, NAC Breda, Twente Enschede and Heerenveen, now enter a four-team playoff for the league's second Champions League berth, a slot in the third qualifying phase.
