AMSTERDAM (AP) - Two goals from midfielder Lerin Duarte helped Dutch league leader Ajax to a 4-0 home victory over AZ Alkmaar on Sunday.

Ajax captain Siem de Jong opened the scoring in the fourth minute, and Ajax went on to play confidently throughout.

Duarte beat a defender to score his first in the 54th minute and 19-year-old Ricardo Kishna made it 3-0 on his Eredivisie debut with an angled shot into the top corner. Duarte scored his second after a solo run in the 74th minute.

Later Sunday, second-place FC Twente plays Feyenoord.
