The youngsters of Ajax were already certain of the next round in the UEFA Youth League but became top of the group even though they drew 1-1 with Valencia.

Ajax started out as the dominant side. Enric Llansana and Kenneth Taylor both fired at goal but the Spanish goalkeeper, Joaquin Blazquiz, was able to save both times. A bit later Damian Dostanic saw a massive chance via a header also stopped by this in-form goalie.

After the break, Ajax tried to keep the storm going but were abruptly stumped by Valencia. The very first chance of the Spanish side resulted in a goal. José Lachon slotted the ball home behind Calvin Raatsie after a low cross. 0-1.

The youngsters tried their all to immediately bounce back but Valencia parked the bus. Eventually, the killer of Valencia in the first game (3 goals in Valencia) Youri Regeer scored. A shot by Douglas was saved but Regeer was in the right place at the right time to score the rebound; 1-1.

It was good to see that Ajax didn’t lean back after the equaliser. They gave it their all to win the match. Douglas should have scored the 2-1 but missed in front of goal. Christian Rasmussen did score but his goal was correctly disallowed for being offside. In the end, the match ended all square; 1-1.
