  • Camara, who had shown no earlier signs of injury, hobbles off the pitch and he will be replaced by Zesiger at the back. That's not ideal for the visitors, who have defended resolutely so far.

  • Lauper is both late and high in a sliding tackle on Neres near the left-hand touchline and unsurprisingly he becomes the first yellow card of the game.

  • GOALLLLLLLL!!! 1-0 AJAX! Alvarez wanders through the middle, poking a pass towards the feet of Tadic. The hosts’ captain then offloads to Klaassen, who storms into the area before slamming a left-footed volley into the top left corner past Faivre. Zesiger and Lustenberger were caught on their heels as the midfielder's driving run puts the visitors a goal down.

  • GOAAAALLLL!!! 2-0 AJAX! Tadic drills past Faivre at his near post with a low left-footed effort to grab an important second goal for the hosts. Initially, Tagliafico had pounced on a loose forward pass by Lustenberger before seeing his blocked shot fall to the feet of Tadic inside the area. After a brief spell of poor play from the hosts, they have surprised Young Boys to capitalise and gain a two-goal advantage in this Europa League last-16 tie.

  • GOOOOOALLLL!!!! 3-0 AJAX! Young Boys attempt to play out from the back but the hosts' defence are pushed so high up they can't escape. The home side then work it through the middle with Gravenberch, who slots in Brobbey in the area. The substitute takes one touch before poking a left-footed effort under Faivre and into the back of the net. Could that be the tie over before the second leg has even started?
