AJAX WIN IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE PLAY OFF

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar continued his bright start to the season with another goal as Ajax eased into the play-off round of the Champions League with a 5-2 aggregate win over Standard Liege.

Ajax who are four-time winners were held 2-2 in the first leg but were never troubled once the ex-Real Madrid and Schalke striker scored.

Matthijs de Ligt headed in a corner four minutes after Huntelaar’s opener.

And David Neres wrapped up the win from Dusan Tadic’s pass to secure a play-off with Dynamo Kiev.

Kiev beat Slavia Prague 3-1 on aggregate – and the winners of that two-legged tie will make the group stage.

Huntelaar, 35, returned to Ajax in 2017 and the club have now won 13 of the 14 games he has scored in.
