Erik ten Hag's side was dominant for most of the game. Lille scored the first goal of the match after a defensive error by Nico Tagliafico, but in the final minutes the match turned in Ajax's favour with goals from Dusan Tadic and Brian Brobbey.

At the end of the match, ten Hag was full of praise for Ajax's display against Lille. "I thought we played extremely well against a team that gives very little away."

"Unfortunately we went behind, which we didn't deserve at all. To come back like that however was truly fantastic. We played very maturely."

Lille – Ajax 1-2 (0-0)
72. Weah 1-0
87. Tadic (pen.) 1-1
88. Brobbey 1-2

Ajax: Stekelenburg, Rensch (82. Schuurs), J. Timber, Martínez, Tagliafico, Álvarez, Blind, Klaassen, Antony (82. Idrissi), Tadic, Neres (74. Brobbey)
