The Johan Cruyff Arena shook from start to finish. Here and there there will likely be concerns on the stadium stands, after the incident at NEC Stadium. But the Arena held out, unlike the defense of Borussia Dortmund. Ajax beat the superpower last night in a magical match with a score of 4-0. And the Netherlands joins them.
In 7 of the 9 matches played this season, in the Eredivisie and the Champions League, Ajax kept a clean sheet. But this time it was different. Borussia Dortmund came to visit. And this was not the worst Erling Haaland. A 21-year-old super attacker with Viking-like proportions. Maybe he was a rugby player, a boxer, or a shooting striker. And be good at it. But he was pretty good at football, scoring 68 goals for Borussia Dortmund in 67 games in three years.
Ajax has Haaland in his fist
Fear was justified, but in hindsight, fear is always easy. The same goes for Haaland. Not that Haaland played too badly, but Ajax’s defense was very strong. Recovery: fort. The lock on the castle door is called Remko Pasveer. Whenever BVB and Haaland have been around, so has Pasveer. He was the first goalkeeper to save Haaland’s three shots in one Champions League match. Commentator Cerd de Vos rejoiced, “Give this guy a necklace until his fiftieth birthday!” Fortunately for Ajax, Pasvir is already 38 years old, so there is only a need for a twelve-year contract extension.
As long as the laundry worker takes Haaland out of Timber’s jeep. The stains on this gorgeous outfit are a shame. #wonder

Everything about this match was reminiscent of 2019, when Ajax came back from a 1-4 deficit against Real Madrid and almost ended up in the Champions League final. If only for Tadic 1-0, which is reminiscent of 1-4 Lacey Sean in that match. But Ajax was also running like clockwork. “Since Real Madrid left, this is the best match ever for Ajax,” said de Vos.
UEFA Champions League Top Scorers
Orgasm grew with each goal. Blinds 2-0, Anthony 3-0 and Haller 4-0. Sebastian Haller. He was not scored by chance in last year’s Europa League, and he has now scored six goals in three Champions League matches. This makes him the European Championship’s top scorer, followed by Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski. Haller has already scored twice as much as Lionel Messi in the Champions League.
Things don’t always look so smooth… but our striker was very important again. Haller! # able pic.twitter.com/Ovz7VZTr3Q

So Ajax coach Erik Ten Hag was satisfied after that. “The team played great. Everything was fine tonight, they did a great job on the field. They played great in possession but also in defense and pressing. We imposed the will on the opponent and took a lot of chances” RTL.
RTL also had a wonderful evening. Nearly two million people witnessed Borussia Dortmund’s exit from the tournament. However, the channel overcame it NOS 20:00 News (1.8 million) and Half of the past seven news on RTL4 (1.2 million).
Will Ajax spend the winter in the Champions League?
What now with Ajax? The club won all three matches and is three points ahead of Borussia Dortmund and six points ahead of Sporting Lisbon. This makes it almost certain to winter in the Champions League and thus participate in the knockout stage. Man of the Match, Daley Blind is confident: “At this level we can rise to great heights, both individually and as a team.”
And fans who have woken up well are convinced of this:
An unforgettable football evening. for Ajax. Dutch football.

I honestly don’t know if I’ve seen Ajax play well. Very dominant, throughout the match, against a great team. Close to perfect. #AJABVB
