Ajax on brink of final after shocking Lyon

Ajax have one foot in the Europa League final a surprisingly comfortable 4-1 win over French giants Lyon.

The Dutch powerhouse were rated as outsiders going into the tie, but they produced a brilliant display in the Amsterdam Arena to put themselves in the driving seat.

Chelsea loanee Bertrand Traore headed Ajax in-front after 25-minutes before highly-rated forward Kasper Dolberg doubled before the break.

Amin Younes claimed a third not long after the break before Lyon – who opted against starting star striker Alexandre Lacazette due to a hamstring issue – pulled on back just after the hour through Mathieu Valbuena.

Lacazette was then brought on, but he had little impact as Ajax added a fourth through Traore again.

Ajax have now been shortened to 2/1 to lift the trophy, whilst Lyon – who were second favourites – are now as long as 12/1.
