A packed Jules Otten stadium in the Belgian city of Gent provided the perfect setting for this Group F match between Zulte-Waregem and Dutch favourites Ajax. And it was the side from the capital that made the perfect start within the first five minutes. The prolific Klaas Jan Huntelaar was in the right place at the right time to take advantage of a defensive error, firing home from close range. It remained that way until early in the second half when some neat link up play between Huntelaar and Kenneth Perez ended with the Dutch international scoring his second of the match. The gloss was put on the victory thanks to the best goal of a one-sided contest. Midfielder Johnny Heitinga fired home from distance with a stunning strike. Ajax progress to the round of 32 after a fully deserved three nil victory. (AP)
