Ajax U19’s have lost for the first time in this season’s UEFA Youth League after Chelsea left Amsterdam with a 1-0 victory.

Ajax went into the game without a number of their key stars including Naci Unuvar, Kenneth Taylor and Sontje Hansen, who are all with the Netherlands squad at the U17 World Cup.

After only two minutes, Chelsea took the lead when Thierno Ballo headed in a corner. From that point, the English side remained in control and Ajax struggled to create any clear chances.

After 68 minutes, Max de Waal was put through after a nice backheel from Tunahan Tasci, but he then saw his shot well saved by the Chelsea goalkeeper.

Ajax couldn’t find an equaliser and they remain on six points in their group.
