John van 't Schip's team took the lead early in the match with an effective header from Chuba Akpom. Ajax couldn't enjoy the opening goal for very long. The equaliser came from Levi Garcia within five minutes. He headed a free kick into the far corner.

In the first half, Ajax gave little away and Kenneth Taylor even put Ajax into the lead. After a well-anticipated pass from Hato, his diagonal shot went in.

In the second half, Akpom gave Ajax a safe lead with 3-1. After his second goal, the Englishman had several more opportunities to score a fourth for Ajax, but it remained 3-1.
