Late goal gives Dortmund victory over Ajax

A goal in the 87th minute gave German champions Borussia Dortmund a 1-0 home win over Ajax in their first Champions League meeting on Tuesday evening.

The Dutch champions almost clinched the lead themselves in the opening period in a performance described as ‘brave’ by the Dutch media.
Earlier in the day, 30 Ajax fans were arrested for vandalism after attacking trams, one of which was so badly damaged it could not be used, the NRC reported.
There was a heavy police presence in the city to try to head off potential clashes between Dutch and German fans.
