Benfica and Ajax drew 2-2 on Wednesday after an intense ninety minutes in Portugal. Thought Erik ten Hag's team was the dominant side in the first half, the home side took control in the second half. A draw, ultimately, seems a fair result for the balance of the game at the Estádio da Luz.
On Wednesday evening, for the second time this season, Ajax played a UEFA Champions League away match in Portugal. After a 1-5 win against Sporting CP in September, Ajax settled for a draw on this occasion as Benfica - Ajax finished 2-2. This leaves everything to play for in the return leg in just under three weeks at the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
