  • IT'S TAGLIAFICO FOR AJAX! 1-0! Pressure straight from the kick-off earns the hosts a corner and from the set-piece, Neres tips in a lofted ball to the edge of the six-yard area that the right-back races onto and volleys into the bottom-left corner past Barkas. The perfect start for the Dutch outfit!

  • VAN DE BEEK MAKES IT 2-0! Ajax double their lead as the substitute meets a Tadic cross in the six-yard box and lashes it past Barkas. A textbook, terrific finish; the Dutch side are in full control of this game now.

  • TAGLIAFICO MAKES IT THREE! 3-0! It's the second goal for the Ajax man - and what a corker it is. He meets Eiting's short cross out on the left wing and then strikes a looping effort in on the run that sails over the head of Barkas. It's a wonderful finish to cap off a wonderful night for the hosts.
