Ajax had the upper hand throughout the match, but during the second half, they started slackening off and gave the opposing team chances to equalise, creating sustained tension. They eventually came off lucky as a free kick from the home side saw the ball bouncing off the goalpost.
So Ajax struggled this time at RKC, but still secured three crucial points for the title race.
