This is 5-0 on aggregate to the team from Amsterdam. Ajax go into the pot for the quarter-finals draw with the top scorecard. This will take place on Friday afternoon at 1:00 pm in Nyon.

Mexico's Edson Álvarez, together with Lisandro Martínez from Argentina, played centre back for the entire match. Nico Tagliafico was taken off after 74 minutes. He was a bit on edge and a yellow card means he'll be missing the quarter-finals.

Young Boys – Ajax 0-2 (0-1)
20. Neres 0-1
49. Tadic (pen.)

Ajax: Stekelenburg, Rensch (80. Schuurs), Álvarez, Martínez, Tagliafico (74. Klaiber), Blind (65. Kudus), Gravenberch, Klaassen, Antony (80. Brobbey), Tadic, Neres (65. Idrissi)
