Ajax 4-1 Lyon
Bertrand Traore 25’ 71’ Mathieu Valbuena 66’
Kasper Dolberg 34’
Amin Younes 49’
Ajax had enough opportunities to score enough goals and finish this fixture with a bigger margin of victory. Bertrand Traore scored both the opening and the closing goal of the match for Ajax to get a healthy lead for the second leg at Lyon.
Lyon would need three goals without a response from Ajax to advance to the final of the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League.
It will be virtually impossible for Lyon to get back into this tie if Ajax goes into the second leg the aggression they had in this match.
