  • BENFICA BREAK THE DEADLOCK! It's 1-0 to the hosts! An absolute gift from Onana, who rushes off his line to deal with Salvio's cross but gets nowhere close to it as it sails over his head and straight to Jonas, who turns it into an empty net!

  • A careless and untidy challenge from Tagliafico sees him into the book, which means he will be suspended for their next match against AEK Athens.

  • Jonas' temper has been running quite high over the last five minutes, since his miss. Perhaps he's upset with himself for not scoring? Nonetheless a needless and dangerous challenge into the back of De Jong up against the touchline sees him pick up a booking.

  • De Ligt catches Cervi as he tries to poke the ball free near the halfway line, and that will see him pick up a yellow card. It's a bit of a harsh one on the defender, as that one has more to do with the referee's patience wearing thin than the foul itself. It's gotten quite sloppy out on the pitch.

  • Clumsy from Fejsa who goes through the back of Ziyech to try and win the ball, and he will see yellow. That's four bookings handed out in this first half by the referee, two for each side.

  • Rafa comes on to replace the injured Salvio in a like-for-like swap on the flank.

  • AJAX HAVE THEIR EQUALISER! It's 1-1! They only just started playing, and are quickly rewarded! Ziyech clips an absolutely stunning ball over the top to pick out the run of Tadic, and the Serbian takes it smartly, poking the ball beyond Vlachodimos with his first touch before squeezing a finish in at the near post with his second!

  • Jardel catches Mazraoui with a stray challenge high up the pitch and that sees him into the book. The defender will be suspended for the next match as a result - a huge blow for them ahead of their trip to Munich.

  • Van de Beek just trips up Gabriel in midfield as he tried to break up the Brazilian's run. The referee blows for the free-kick straight away and shows a yellow to the Ajax midfielder - a six booking of the match produced by the referee.

  • A positive change from Ajax as Dolberg is introduced at the expense of Neres. Ajax have not been as effective in attack without a focal point. The arrival of a true striker in Dolberg should help change that.
