FC Twente came from behind to upset Ajax in the first leg of their second-round Champions League play-off which they won 2-1.

Luis Suarez put Ajax ahead just before half-time but a second-half brace from Blaise N´Kufo - the first a penalty - turned the tide and give Twente a surprise advantage heading to the Amsterdam ArenA next Sunday.

After kick-off was delayed 10 minutes due to crowd congestion at the Unive Stadion - Twente´s temporary home - the game got off to a slow start and neither goal was truly threatened until late in the first half.
