Substitute Steven Langil scored a late second-half winner as Auxerre kick-started its Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win over Ajax, keeping alive the French club's slim hopes of reaching the knockout phase of the tournament.
Langil slotted home in the 84th minute with a shot between Netherlands goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg' legs after being set up by Kamel Chafni's deep free kick.
Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld had scored the equalizer in the 79th minute with a powerful header from Luis Suarez's cross after Frederic Sammaritano had put Auxerre ahead in the ninth minute.
Despite losing its first three matches, last-place Auxerre now has three points in Group G, just one less than Ajax. Real Madrid tops the group with 10 points, five more than AC Milan.
