STORY: Ajax missed a chance to go top of the Eredivisie by drawing 2-2 away at Roda in Kerkrade on Sunday (January 31).
Frank de Boer’s side went into the lead in the 26th minute when Arkadiusz Milik met Nemanja Gudelj’s corner and headed past the Roda keeper.
Ajax went 2-0 just two minutes later after Roda’s Kristoffer Peterson gave the ball away to Anwar El Ghazi, who scored with a low drive from outside the area.
Peterson made up for his earlier mistake eleven minutes before half-time when he ran down the left side and hit a low cross that was met by Roda striker, Rydell Poepon.
Ugur Inceman came close to levelling the scores just before half-time, but Daley Sinkgraven was in place to clear off the line for Ajax.
A largely uneventful second-half had an exciting ending when Roda’s young Belgian forward, Maecky Ngombo, met a corner kick and headed in from close range in injury time to tie the game at 2-2.
