Ajax wins in sweltering Hardenberg

Ajax defeated Real Sociedad under tropical conditions on Saturday. After defeating Achilles ’29 earlier in the day, the Amsterdam team was too strong for its Spanish opponent a few hours later, defeating it 3-1. Former Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason brought Sociedad into a 1-0 lead, but Arek Milik, Anwar El Ghazi and a Spanish own goal ensured a well-deserved win.
