Ajax – Benfica: Ajax wins fun, balanced Champions League clash in dying seconds (1-0)
This was a truly entertaining, international-level game between two clubs who are not from one of Europe’s ‘Big Five’ competitions. Ajax’s young right-back Noussair Mazraoui turned out to be the unlikely hero of the night, with his deflected long shot in the 93rd minute deciding a very tight, hard-fought game in the hosts’ favor.
Make no mistake about it, this was a very important game for Ajax and Benfica. Being able to win this match would mean a very advantageous position to advance to the round of sixteen of the Champions League . . .
