PSV, Ajax kick off Eredivisie season in style

AMSTERDAM, Aug 20 (Reuters) - Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven kicked off their new league campaign with a 3-1 win over NEC Nijmegen in the Dutch first division on Sunday.

Rivals Ajax Amsterdam were even more impressive as they hammered RKC Waalwijk 5-0, while last season's surprise package Groningen scored three goals in 13 minutes to sink Feyenoord 3-0.

PSV captain Phillip Cocu opened the scoring from close range in the 44th minute before Brazilian Alex doubled the lead in injury time.

Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink sealed the win early in the second half, while Rutger Worm scored a consolation goal for the visitors a minute before time.

Ajax had to wait until the 33rd minute to open the scoring but once Ryan Babel put them ahead, the floodgates opened. Wesley Sneijder scored twice while John Heitinga and Mauro Rosales completed the rout.

After a poor first half, Groningen raised the pace following the interval.

Erik Nevland broke the deadlock in the 55th minute with a close range header. Koen van der Laak and Glen Salmon sealed the win for Groningen.

On Saturday Simon Cziommer scored a hat-trick for AZ Alkmaar in their 8-1 rampage over NAC Breda.
