Ajax began Sunday on the thuisduel with FC Groningen, without initially a lot of opportunities to come. The first was after a minute or five for Cerny, who shot turned saw be by goalkeeper Sergio Padt.

The home team had a preponderance, and after more than a quarter of an hour seemed to be an advantage to provide. Keeper Padt had no answer to a low shot from Ziyech, but the playmaker struck the pole.

The remainder of the first half was largely steady. Ajax had by far the most ball possession, but came barely to the possibilities, and the visitors from Groningen cared not for danger, for the purpose of goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Eight minutes for peace was the spell broken. Ziyech put well and Huntelaar headed in his 150th Eredivisieduel flawless touch. It marked the first Eredivisiedoelpunt since november 9, 2008 for the striker this summer, returning to Ajax.


In the second half, it was almost instantly for the second time, touch for Ajax. Justin Kluivert sailed through the middle, but a perfect reflex of goalkeeper Padt featured a hit of the young winger.

The second goal came not much later. Ziyech received the ball in the 48th minute in the zestienmetergebied and pulled viciously into the far corner: 2-0.

At the spelbeeld changed nothing in the second half. Ajax was the parent party and FC Groningen created almost nothing. It was to slordigheidjes of the home team due that the score does not go down.

It was, therefore, surprising that FC Groningen is a small twenty minutes before the end however, the aansluitingstreffer made. Idrissi fired a beautiful touch in the far corner. The krachtsverschil remained and substitute Schöne left the Arena one more time, cheered by a beautiful swing.

Thanks to the victory Ajax three points from two matches in the Premier league. FC Groningen played in the first round with a 3-3 flush against sc Heerenveen and wait so still on the first win.
