Ajax are held to a 0-0 draw by 10-man NAC Breda in their Eredivisie clash at the Amsterdam ArenA.

Ajax have been held to a 0-0 draw by 10-man NAC Breda in this afternoon's Eredivisie clash at the Amsterdam ArenA.

The visitors were first to threaten when Jeffrey Sarpong's header towards goal was saved by Jasper Cillessen, but the referee had already stopped the move for offside.

Ajax then had a chance just after the half-hour mark as Kolbeinn Sigthorsson's dangerous shot was palmed away by opposition goalkeeper Jelle ten Rouwelaar.

Frank de Boer's charges finished the first half strongly and picked up from where they left off after the restart, with Daley Sinkgraven firing over the bar from a free kick.

Viktor Fischer then made an emotional return from a 14-month injury layoff when he replaced Sigthorsson in the 64th minute.

Despite the touching moment for the Ajax team and fans, they were not able to push on and secure the win as Breda held on for a share of the spoils despite having substitute Gill Swerts sent off late on for a foul on Thulani Serero.

The Amsterdam giants continue to remain second in the Eredivisie table, while Breda now sit three points adrift of safety in the relegation playoff zone.
