Ajax ball boy launches football at Roma star Riccardo Calafiori during Europa League clash

Passions ran high during Ajax’s Europa League tie against Roma but not in the way you’d expect. Roma have the advantage in the quarter-final tie as they claimed a 2-1 win at the Johan Cruyff ArenA. It was the Ajax ball boy who let his passion spill over, however Davy Klaassen gave the Dutch side the lead in the first half but second half strikes from Lorenzo Pellegrini and Rober Ibanez turned the first leg on its head.
