After the 4-0 win in Sweden two weeks ago, Ajax went into the second leg with a commanding lead and John Heitinga’s side dominated from the start. Che Nunnely and Jurgen Ekkelenkamp missed decent chances before Saku Ylätupa opened the scoring just before the break.

Ekkelenkamp hit the post early in the second half, before Nunnely, Ylätupa and Sebastian Pasquali all missed chances to double the lead. Eventually, Nunnely added a second just before the end with a fine strike.

Ajax now progress to the next round, where they will face Polish side Legia Warsaw.
