A missed penalty by Dusan Tadic was followed by an equaliser for AS Roma. Shortly afterwards, Lorenzo Pellegrini took a free kick for the Italians:1-1. 

Just before the end of the game, Roger Ibañez plunged Ajax into mourning. Ten Hag's team was chasing the 1-2, but the goal fell on the other side.

The return will follow next week in Italy.
