Ajax defeated Sparta 9-0 in the 2000/01 season. In the then KNVB Cup and UEFA Cup, UDI’19 (9-0) and Maribor (9-1) were brought back with big marks. Ajax once won a Dutch league match with eight different goals. It happened on August 30, 1981 against de Graafschap (9-1).
fit and satisfied
Coach Erik ten Hag is committed to keeping as many players as possible from his wide range of fit and satisfaction. Nicholas Tagliafico and David Neres were allowed to start again against SC Campore. The two players were allowed to leave this summer but have not found the right club.
Daley Blind and Anthony rested three days after the match against Sporting Portugal (1-5) and Davy Claassen and Martin Stecklenburg are still injured. But even without that quadruple game, Ajax were too strong for Campbell on their own court. After victories in front of their fans against NEC (5-0) and Vitesse (5-0) it sometimes seemed as if the champion could decide the outcome himself. If Ajax gave her some gas, it rained down targets in the ring.
Kambur remained straight for the first fifteen minutes. But then it was Jurriën Timber who took the ball from Alex Bangura in his own half. Across the field, along with Stephen Burgess opened the score. Three minutes later, Burgess scored after a corner kick trained by Ryan Gravenberch and Dusan Tadic. Nassir Mazraoui and Nires also scored the goal before the end of the first half (4-0).
Tadic made the score 5-0 before allowing him to leave to sign Danish Mohamed Darami. Bear Shores, Kenneth Taylor, Danilo and Blind also earned playing time. Darami made his ring debut with a score of 6-0, with a pass from Taylor. Haller, who scored four goals against Sporting, made the score 7-0. Danilo equaled a record in the Eredivisie with eight different goals in one match. After Neres won 9-0, fans in the stadium chanted “Ten, ten, ten.” Kambur escaped this humiliation. Gravenbrich hit the post in injury time.
Strong, fast and deep
Ajax collected 9 points and a goal difference of 19-0 in its three matches in the competition this season at its home. It might sound easy,” said Ten Hag after the big win. “But if we don’t manage to do that, we’re going to have a really hard time.”
“You play football for the fans,” said Ten Hag. “I think we achieved customer loyalty,” said the coach, who was very satisfied with Mohamed Darami’s replacement. “I have already seen in training that this is a boy we need. He is strong, fast and has a lot of depth.”
Once again, Ten Hag gave David Neris a primary spot. “He was looking for a transfer. That doesn’t work. Now he’s turning that disappointment into motivation. Also in training. We can have a lot of fun with that.”
