  • 78
    Anastasiou (Ajax) is penalised for a foul on Miličević (Thun).

  • 71
    Rosales (Ajax) is penalised for a foul on Deumi (Thun).
    The game is beginning to stagnate, with Ajax happy to sit on their lead and Thun struggling to impose themselves, and there have been a rash of free-kicks.

  • 64
    Pienaar (Ajax) has an effort on goal.

  • 63
    Sneijder (Ajax) is penalised for a foul on Nelson Ferreira (Thun).
  • 63
    Maduro (Ajax) misses the target.
    The game has quietened down since Ajax took a two-goal lead but their midfielders are still looking to advance although Maduro never looks like making it 3-0 as he struggled to get enough purchase on his effort.

  • 60

  • Goal
    55
    Anastasiou (Ajax) scores!
    The Greek striker makes it 2-0 with his second shot of the match. Sneijder struggled to bring the ball under control on the apex of the penalty area, allowing Alen Orman to pounce. The Austrian defender only managed to direct the ball into the path of the on-running Anastasiou who clipped the ball home with great poise.

  • 51
    Jakupović (Thun) makes a save.

    Stekelenburg (Ajax) makes a save.
  • 49
    Lustrinelli (Thun) has an effort on goal.

  • 47
    Pienaar (Ajax) misses the target.
    The South African spurns a golden opportunity to double the advantage when he blasts the ball over the bar from close range. Rosales was the provider, drilling in a low cross that Armand Deumi could only direct into Pienaar's path but with the goal at his mercy the 23-year-old blazed over.

  • 42
    Lustrinelli (Thun) has an effort on goal.

  • 42
    Anastasiou (Ajax) is adjudged to be in an offside position.

    Wesley Sneijder drifts the resulting free-kick to the penalty spot where the unmarked De Jong heads over. But he is offide anyway.

    The Brazilian defender is penalised for an untidy check on the advancing Ajax right-back.
  • 37

  • Goal
    36
    Anastasiou (Ajax) scores!
    The Greek striker, who was told he was to be released in March, gives Ajax a deserved lead with half-time approaching. Pienaar leads the attack down the right flank, working enough space to pass the ball towards the penalty spot. Anastasiou holds off the challenge of Ljubo Milicevic and adroitly deflects the ball just inside the near post.
  • 34
    Nelson Ferreira (Thun) misses the target.
  • 33
    Rosales (Ajax) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Nelson Ferreira (Thun).
  • 33
    Lustrinelli (Thun) misses the target.
    With Trabelsi caught upfield, Gelson leads an attack up the left flank. His initial shot is blocked by Zdeněk Grygera, but the Luxembourg striker reacts first and clips the loose ball through to the far post. Mauro Lustrinelli gets the faintest of touches on it but not enough to hit the target.
  • 33
    Gelson (Thun) has a shot blocked.
  • 31
    Sneijder (Ajax) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Aegerter (Thun).
  • 30
    Trabelsi (Ajax) misses the target.
    The Tunisian right-back has had little to do in defence so he tries his luck in attack but never threatens with a weak shot that rolls harmlessly wide of the right-hand post.
  • 26
    Gelson (Thun) fouls.
    Gelson Rodrigues is enduring a frustrating evening, and exemplifies this as he is penalised for controlling with his arm.
  • 25
    N. De Jong (Ajax) misses the target.
    Thun seem unable to keep the livewire midfield player under wraps, and he again finds himself in space midway through the opposing half, advancing several metres before unleashing a well-struck shot. The effort is always rising, however, and Jakupovic is never troubled.
  • 24
    Sneijder (Ajax) delivers the corner.
  • 21
    N. De Jong (Ajax) misses the target.
    The Dutch youngster is revelling in the space Thun are affording him and almost makes the visitors pay but fails to hit the target under pressure from the equally eye-catching José Gonçalves.
  • 19
    N. De Jong (Ajax) is penalised for a foul on Adriano (Thun).
    Ajax have dominated the opening 20 minutes but are consistently let down by a lack of poise. The lively Nigel de Jong demonstrates that with a needless foul on halfway.
  • 16
    Rosales (Ajax) is penalised for a foul on Orman (Thun).
    The Argentinian forward is penalised for a trip on the Austrian defender deep inside the home side's half.
  • 15
    Galásek (Ajax) is penalised for a foul on Gelson (Thun).
  • 14
    N. De Jong (Ajax) is flagged for offside.
    The 20-year-old, who has scored two league goals this season, has been a lively attacking presence but is a bit too enthusiastic as he mis-times a run onto the edge of the penalty box.
  • 14
    Nelson Ferreira (Thun) is penalised for a foul on Maduro (Ajax).
    The Swiss side are struggling to get into this game and starved of possession, their midfielders are being drawn deeper and deeper into their own half. It is unfamiliar territory for Ferreira, and he demonstrates as much with two fouls in as many minutes.
  • 12
    Nelson Ferreira (Thun) is penalised for a foul on Emanuelson (Ajax).
  • 9
    Anastasiou (Ajax) is flagged for offside.
  • 8
    Anastasiou (Ajax) misses the target.
    The Greek striker has surprisingly been preferred to Markus Rosenberg and Nourdin Boukhari in attack and almost vindicates his coach's decision within the opening ten minutes. Hatem Trabelsi arced a pin-point right-wing cross onto the veteran's head, but with the goal at his mercy Anastasiou glanced his header wide.
  • 7
    Adriano (Thun) is penalised for a foul on N. De Jong (Ajax).
    Both sides have been content to sit back in the opening period, and await a mistake, but Adriano finally loses his composure with a poor challenge.
  • 4
    Jakupović (Thun) makes a save.
  • 4
    N. De Jong (Ajax) has an effort on goal.
    The right-sided Dutch international works the first opening of the game when he beats the offside trap but after cushioning the ball, his shot is smothered at his feet by Eldin Jakupovic.
  • Start Time
    The match is under way.
