The match against the Germans started with a bang, when five minutes in, first big chance fell to Antony. Though his shot was blocked, it sparked a period of dominant play. In the eleventh minute, the building pressure resulted in the 1-0, when a free kick by Dusan Tadic was deflected by Marco Reus into his own net.
Ajax did not let up, though, and before half-time Daley Blind slammed home a volley to make it 2-0. The Amsterdammers picked up where they left off at the start of the second half, with the Germans under pressure from the first minute. Thanks to two more from Antony and Sébastien Haller, Erik ten Hag's team cruised to a 4-0 victory.
