True fate of fate with Ajax. After Greece, Leicester City, Iceland, thought Ajax had created a fairy tale. If the matches are only decided after 45 minutes, Ajax has done the same thing as Leicester City once shocked the world.
The young Ajax players collapsed on the Johan Cruyff Arena. Red eyes appeared on the stands. People do not believe in what is on the field. The army was led boy coach Erik ten Hag with score 3-0 in the match, but was removed with score 3-3 and officially stopped playing.
Ten Hag is dumbfounded outside the border. Frankie de Jong stared blankly at the celebrating Tottenham Hotspur players. Captain Matthijs de Ligt collapsed on the field. Ajax lost many matches, but this defeat was too bitter. No one swallowed this result.
Ajax played very well in the first 45 minutes. Their football is still devoted, vibrant and makes people love this team, even if it is a neutral fan. When Hakim Ziyech raised the score to 2-0 for homeowners, dreams came to Ajax. All thought of Madrid, where the final met Liverpool.
But the Champions League has no place for dreams, this is a game of faith. Spurs exploded to create a spectacular upstream. Ajax shot himself. Robert Alberts analyzed: “Ajax has forgotten about football as its brand. They are too reckless. This is what happened to Barca.”
When Dele Alli threatened the homeowner’s goal with a close-range finish at the beginning of the second half, the English team began to see opportunities flashed. Ajax crafts are not solid walls. They hit the gap of the midfield pair and the squad was constantly rising.
Lucas Moura’s goal was shortened to the nightmare for Ajax. The mentality of young players becomes shaky. Goalkeeper André Onana caught the ball with uncertain and assertive hands. The second goal came as usual. At this time, Ajax clearly revealed the nature of a young football team and lacked the bravery to solve the match.
