Schalke u19 2-3 Ajax u19

Ajax started their campaign with a well earned 3-2 win at Schalke in the first leg of their first round tie. The Dutch side started the game brightly and after seven minutes Abdelhak Nouri opened the scoring for close range after good work by Vaclav Cerny. It was 2-0 just after the half hour mark as Matthijs de Ligt headed into the net, but Fabian Reese pulled one back for Schalke in first half injury time.

Cerny restored Ajax’s two goal lead on 53 minutes, and although Paul Stieber pulled one back for Schalke the Amsterdam side held on for the win. The second leg in Amsterdam takes place on the 21st of October.
