Ajax B1 has won its second group match in the Aegon Future Cup. They defeated the Brazilian team Corinthians, 4-0, at the Toekomst.
It was the second straight big loss for Corinthians, as they had been defeated earlier in the day by Liverpool, 4-0. Ajax started the tournament with a 1-0 win against Celtic, and added on a second victory. Saïd Ouaali’s team is almost assured of a semi-final spot. On Sunday, Ajax only needs one point in its third group match against Liverpool (12:00). Should Ajax lose, there is still a significant chance that they will be among the final four.
Corinthians didn’t have much steam against Ajax on field 3. Within the first fifteen minutes, the score was already at 2-0 thanks to goals by Icelander Magnus Karlsson and captain Abdel Nouri. Karlsson scored the 3-0 goal as well, and Dani de Wit scored the last one right before the end: 4-0.
