Ajax seal Champions League slot in Kiev

Ajax reached the group stages of the Champions League for the first time in four years after a 0-0 draw with Dynamo Kiev.

The Dutch superpowers took a 3-1 advantage to the Olimpiyskyi Stadium in Kiev and protected their lead, despite a strong start from the home side.

Ajax weathered the early storm and could have extended their aggregate lead from the penalty spot, but Dusan Tadic could only strike the woodwork.

Dynamo Kiev couldn’t make the most of the lifeline as Ajax tightened their grip on the tie, spurning chance after chance.

But now they are back at the big boys’ table; Ajax could make a real impression. They have a good mix of young players and experience.
