But the hosts still have more work to do if they want to continue in the same situation.

But for most of the first half Lacazette saw little of the ball and even less sight of Ajax's goal as the visitors' youthful side controlled the game. They're W10-D2-L1 at home in this competition since 2012/13 with their sole defeat coming against Juventus back in 2014 and it's for that reason that they're as short as 1.67 here, despite the heavy defeat in the first leg. Corentine Tolisso, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Mouctar Diakhaby all missed the match over the weekend, and are doubts for the match against Ajax. But there's still a lot of value to be had.

However, while they gave Ajax an almighty scare with a 3-1 win, the 10-man Amsterdammers held on to secure their place in the final.

But Lyon, who have never reached a major European final, were given hope after France midfielder Mathieu Valbuena curled in an away goal. Indeed, their issues were all on display, but this team has shown enough this season to be able to challenge Manchester United in Stockholm on May 24.

Lyon, though, could not get over the hump, and were thusly banished from Europe. Sad!

Lyon could face a European ban after being charged by UEFA for supporters' actions in their Europa League exit on Thursday. While remaining two went to draw with no goal.

An Ajax goal had been coming before Dolberg finally opened the scoring, and the openness of Lyon's defence and unstable midfield suggested Ajax were in for a simple evening.

Viergever was then sent off for fouling Fekir but he sent the free-kick miles over.

Ajax Lineup: Andre Onana, Matthijs de Ligt, Davinson Sanchez, Nick Viergever, Joël Veltman, Lasse Schöne, Hakim Ziyech, Davy Klaassen, Kasper Dolberg, Amin Younes, Bertrand Traore. Nevertheless, until the end of the first half, the result was the same, Ajax had the lead and they were complacently moving towards the finale.
