EUROPEAN ROUND-UP

Ajax secured the Dutch league title for the 25th time when they beat Volendam 4-1 at the Olympic Stadium yesterday.

In Italy, the Serie A leaders, Juventus, need just a draw with second- placed Parma in Turin next Sunday to clinch the league title. Juventus thrashed nine-man Genoa 4-0 on Saturday, while Parma beat Bari with a first Serie A goal for Stefano Fiore. Parma go into Wednesday's second leg of the Uefa Cup final holding a 1-0 advantage over Juve.

Lazio, who again left out the unsettled Paul Gascoigne, move into fourth place ahead of their local rivals, Roma, after beating Internazionale 4-1.

An early second-half goal from Paul Le Guen gave Paris St-Germain a 1- 0 win over Strasbourg in the French Cup final.
