Ajax rescue late draw against Heracles
Matthijs de Ligt's late header rescued a point for Ajax in their opening game of the 2018/19 Dutch Eredivisie season - a 1-1 draw with Heracles Almelo on Saturday (11th August).
Ajax created the majority of the first-half chances, but a combination of wayward finishing and the efforts of goalkeeper Janis Blaswich kept the game deadlocked - the latter blocking Donny van de Beek's 42nd-minute shot.
Heracles would take the lead in scintillating style moments later, though, with Kristoffer Peterson cutting in off the left wing and ending a run from inside his own half with a brilliant strike that left Onana no chance.
Ajax would rescue a draw with two minutes of the 90 left to play, though - defender Matthijs de Ligt shaking off the attentions of Maximilian Rossmann before glancing a header from Ziyech's corner kick inside the far post.
