Ajax started well the match and created a number of great opportunities. So sent Davy Klaassen pointed Dolberg after eight minutes play only at goalkeeper Bram Castro, but the latter came as the winner out of the fight.

Castro did two minutes later, not in action with a shot from Klaassen and had then also a good rescue in your home to a cunning ball from Traoré.

Also Heracles came there occasionally dangerous, and in the thirteenth minute, just on lead. Kristoffer Peterson was after a quick counter deep sent by Thomas Bruns, omspeelde keeper André Onana, but saw his efforts by Jaïro Riedewald be turned away on the goal line.

In the seventeenth minute, it looked like Heracles still 0-1 to come, were it not that the goal of Armenteros rightly been disapproved because of offside. The tip of the Heraclieden stood by the cross of Peterson just a bit too far for the ball.

On the other hand, it was in the 23rd minute touch. Castro got a shot from the edge of the penalty area from Klaassen not under control, and was then not stand a chance when the rebound of Dolberg, who in the past two thuisduels Ajax, all accurate.

Long was the team of trainer Peter Bosz not enjoy the advantage, because Armenteros made two minutes after the 1-0 all the same. The clubtopscorer (twelve goals) headed home a measured cross from Wout Droste via the inside of the post behind the stray Onana.


In the remainder of the first half were both teams are very well matched. Ajax had a lot more possession, but could only occasionally a hole is found in the strong defence of Heracles. And if the Locals did so, then showed Castro is a stand-in-the-road. That was the case with a free-kick from Hakim Ziyech and the effort of the distance from Lasse Schöne.

Ajax got just before half-time a following disappointment in the process. Nick Viergever, who in the absence of Daley Sinkgraven again as full-played, and caught at a sprint to his groin and let himself in the rest replaced by The Is.

The home team went down in the opening stages of the second half on the hunt for the 2-1 and it Is broke in the 56th minute the ban. The only 17-year-old defender headed home a corner kick from Ziyech governed within. The Is was just too dangerous with a stunning shot from some thirty yards, that Castro barely out of the intersection was tapped.


Ajax was also after the new lead and gas that resulted after one hour in the 3-1 Sanchez. The Colombian mandekker got all of time and space from about 25 yards out and devoured Castro with a dry scrubber in the far corner.

Heracles tried in the last half hour still to come back in the match, but had the bad luck that Onana superbly saved a shot from close of Jaroslav Navratil (magnificent preparatory work of Peterson and Sanchez with a tackle, the aansluitingstreffer occurred.

Bosz awarded the Brazilian acquisition David Neres, therefore, eighteen minutes before time, his debut and the deft vleugelaanvaller saw that Traoré in the injury time the final score at 4-1 by a flurry of Ziyech to redeem.
