Jurriën Timber looked back with delight at how things unfolded in Tilburg. He won the match for the team by scoring the only goal. "Things were just really tricky. The weather was dreadful and no-one scored for ages."

Even so, it turned out well for the Ajax team in the end. "That we won anyway is a great feeling. You have to win these legs if you want to be the champions. Earlier in the season we occasionally lost matches like these, or drew. Today was a totally different sensation. The mindset felt different and that immediately produces results."

Timber also looked back at his goal, briefly. "I scored with my abs. Lisandro (Martínez) actually told me to get to the other post. Earlier in the game I saw Tadic make a similar cross, but this time there was no one else there. So I was able to just tap it in."
