  • GOAAAALLLLL - BENFICA 1-1 AJAX - The home side draw level, and Vertonghen will claim the assist, but it is an own goal from Haller. The Ivory Coast international was expected to add to his ten Champions League goals this season, but he will be devastated to have found the back of the wrong net. Vertonghen's drilled cross from the corner caused chaos, and Haller did not have time to sort out his feet, and the deflection beat Pasveer.

  • GOAAALLL - BENFICA 1-2 AJAX - Talk about making amends!!! Haller now scores at the right end as he pounces at the near post to slot home. The former West Ham United ace made a run towards the near post to attack Berghui's cross, which was tracked by Vertonghen. The former Tottenham man turned a clearance towards his goalkeeper, but Pasveer could only spill the ball at the feet of Haller, and he found the bottom corner with his first touch.

  • GOAAAALLLLL - BENFICA 2-2 AJAX - The home fans go wild as Benfica protests. Timber went down in the penalty area and pleaded for a penalty, but that appeal was ignored. With the centre-back out of position, Benfica launched a counter-attack, and Ramos stung the palms of Pasveer, who spilt the ball back into the penalty area. Yaremchuk was in the right place at the right time, and he headed into an empty net to level matters!
