Ajax Women rally to win CL-debut

In a historic duel at de Toekomst Sports complex, the Ajax Women rallied to a 1-0 win against the Italian team, Brescia.  Linda Bakker scored the team's first ever Champions League goal in Amsterdam.  An early red card for Marjolijn van den Bighelaar could have made things difficult, but nothing was further from the truth.  The Amsterdam team is now in a good position as it travels to Italy next week for the return.

Score summary: 88. Bakker 1-0

Line-up Ajax Women: Sarasola; Van der Gragt, Zeeman, Van Dongen; Van der Most, Reichardt (62. Van den Abbeele), Kaagman, Van Lunteren, Philtjens; Oudemast (73. Bakker), Van den Bighelaar
