Excelsior got the equaliser in the 36th minute through Redouan el Yaakoubi who connected a cross from Couhaib Driouech.

The Dutch giants restored their advantage moments before the halftime break with a goal from Davy Klaasen.

Kudus increased the tally for the visitors after the hour mark with a sublime finish as his thunderous shot from the edge of the box beat goalkeeper Stijn van Gassel.

Defender Devyne Rensch completed the victory for Ajax with seven minutes remaining after receiving a pass from Francisco Conceicao.
