The matches against KAA Gent and Krylya Sovetov were played behind closed doors on Saturday at the Toekomst as a security measure. After Ajax’s ‘starting team’ lost to Gent 0-2, Ajax’s second team’s start wasn’t great, either. After six minutes, the line-up, under captain Lasse Schöne, went down, 0-1. Krylya Sovetov ( ‘The Soviet Wings’) scored from within the box.
First goal Cassierra
Ajax, with Heiko Westermann making his debut, kept a cool head and tied the game in the tenth minute. Mateo Cassierra scored with a good solid shot: his first goal with Ajax. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to post a win, since the Russian team scored again midway through the second half.
