FC Salzburg dispatched AFC Ajax 3-0 thanks to a spellbinding first-half display which included a sublime goal from Jonatan Soriano.

The Austrian title holders started this UEFA Europa League round of 32 first leg at a blistering tempo and struck three times without reply inside the opening period. Soriano converted a penalty after Jöel Veltman had fouled Alan, seven minutes before Sadio Mané made no mistake when one-on-one with Jasper Cillessen. Soriano then stole the show by firing over the stranded Ajax keeper from close to the halfway line.
