Ajax face Champs League test

Four-times Dutch winners face tough task as they aim to snap losing run at Dynamo Kiev.

    Four-times winners Ajax have failed to qualify for the European Champions League group stages for the past five years.

    So the last team that the Dutch wanted to be drawn against in the final qualifying round was Dynamo Kiev.

    The Ukrainians are regulars in the group stages, and boast record goalscorer Andrey Shevchenko as their star striker.
