AMSTERDAM (AP) - PSV got the win it needed Saturday to guarantee a spot in Europa League qualifying next season, beating NAC Breda 2-0 in the final round of the Dutch league.

It was a bright moment in a disappointing season for the Eindhoven club: PSV needed to win to finish fourth behind Ajax, Feyenoord and FC Twente.

Memphis Depay scored after 16 minutes, slotting in a pass from Jorrit Hendrix for the opener. Jeffrey Bruma headed in Depay’s corner for the second after an hour of play.

Ajax clinched its fourth straight championship last week, while Feyenoord claimed second place and a spot in Champions League qualifying.

11th-placed PEC Zwolle will play European football for the first time, after it beat Ajax in the Dutch Cup final last month.
