Sergino Dest vs. Watford
One of two players to play the full 90 minutes, Dest was very solid once again. Unfortunately conceded a penalty trying to save a 2v1 situation, but besides that he was great and nearly scored a beauty as well.

Dest gave up a penalty on an unfortunate handball but he almost scored later in the game. He also started against Istanbul Basaksehir in the
first game on its pre-season trip to Austria.
Ajax is loaded at right back, but the only player ahead of him at left back is Argentine Nicolas Tagliafico, who is on vacation until next week following the Copa America. Another Argentine defender, new signing Lisardo Martinez, is left-footed but is injured.
"I try to be multi-functional and fill in multiple positions," Dest told De Telegraaf. "I don't care where I stand, as long as I play."
Last season, Moroccan Noussair Mazraoui came on to win the right back job.
