Ajax’s 1-1 draw against Juventus in the Champions League was a massive result for Dutch football.

Netherlands lost 11th spot in the UEFA Coefficient list after Red Bull Salzburg’s 2nd leg victory over Napoli in the Europa League.

However, with Napoli going through to the next round, Ajax had the chance to reclaim 11th spot for Netherlands if they achieved at least a draw in either leg against Juventus.

A second half goal from David Neres earned Ajax a more than deserved 1-1 draw against the Old Lady, meaning Netherlands have now confirmed 11th spot in the coefficient list.

That means the winner of next season’s Eredivisie is almost certainly guaranteed an automatic place in the Champions League group stages.
