Ajax triumphs thanks to defenders

Ajax has won the first leg of its Europa League matches against Steaua Bucharest, 2-0. Although centre forward Kolbeinn Sigthórsson had a strong comeback, it was defenders Toby Alderweireld and Ricardo van Rhijn who scored for the Amsterdam team in the almost sold-out ArenA. Thanks to this win, Frank de Boer’s team can now enjoy an advantage for the return match in Romania.
