Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.

  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    It has been a good first half, with Aras Özbiliz's well-taken equaliser cancelling out an early Javier Hernández effort and giving the visitors the faintest glimmer of hope. It is 1-1, but if both sides keep up their smart attacking play, it is unlikely to stay this way.

  • 36
    Alderweireld (Ajax) takes the free-kick.
    The curling delivery from the left wing somehow contrives to miss everyone in the area, including several Ajax heads. It was a delicious cross, and cried out to be put in the back of the net.
