  • GOAL! ANTONY OPENS AJAX'S ACCOUNT! 1-0! There's not even a minute on the clock and already the visitors are ahead! Ajax play it down the right channel and Tadic is allowed to roam into the box to pick up a square ball. He holds three defenders on the edge of the six-yard box and plays it away to his fellow attacker, whose first touch is clumsy but makes up for with a well-drilled finish that slips past several Midtjylland players and a poor attempt at a stop from Andersen. First blood to the Dutch side.

  • There is the slightest of touches from Promes as the free-kick is taken that puts a little bit of momentum in the ball and that helps Tadic just leather it past the wall. Clinical stuff and it puts Ajax well into the driving seat before the quarter-hour mark is even reached.

  • GOAL! ANDERS DREYER PULLS ONE BACK FOR MIDTJYLLAND! 2-1! That is an absolute beauty of a left-footed lob by the midfielder, who is the man on the right flank in support of a break from Cajuste on the other side. A neat cross finds him, he canters into the box and pulls the trigger on instinct to beat Onana. What a strike!

  • Paulinho looks to seize a break and rattle away down the left wing - at least until Schuurs clears him out. It's a rough challenge and results in a yellow card for the Ajax man, plus a free-kick 25 yards or so out on the flank.
