Ajax took, as expected, already in the initial phase of the competition the initiative against Excelsior. It gave a good chance for Kasper Dolberg, but the Danish striker’s shot over after a cross from Ziyech.

Also Bertrand Traoré (salvation) and Schöne (about) were possibilities, but Ajax came in the first half, not really by the defense of Excelsior. The Kralingers had offensively a little, and tried especially to hold.

That was the visitors throughout the first half, but a few minutes after peace was still touch for Ajax. Dolberg laid the ball with his head to the feet of Ziyech, who is goalkeeper Tom Muyters devoured with a placed shot.

After sixty minutes of play had been 2-0, after Danny Makkelie the ball on the dot, placed after a breach at Dolberg. The stand taken penalty kick by Schöne, however, was a prey for Muyters. Ten minutes earlier, had the Dane all the pole hit with a shot distance.


Excelsior was little in the game, but every now and then quite dangerous. Saw Danilo Pantic after more than fifty minutes, his hard shot in the short corner may be turned away by the Ajax keeper Andre Onana.

On a single ability of Excelsior after, however, it was one-way traffic in the Arena. Ajax got great opportunities through Dolberg, Amin Younes and substitute Cerny, but the trio was much to sloppy in the closing.

The home team failed the score continued to expand and became increasingly careless, but Excelsior was offensively impotent. Nouri got in the last second of the contest still have a chance to be Eredivisiedebuut on listening with a goal, but the midfielder shot next.
