Ajax

Yesterday we saw another shock in Amsterdam. Local club Ajax could not score a goal and lost a match against Chelsea. Lampard’s team is growing every day, and as it seems, the team will be really in the Champions League this season.

Pre-match preparations and statistics

Before the match, Ajax had 6 points from two wins. Amsterdam club won two games in a group with same results 3:0;

At the same time, Chelsea could not win the first match in the Champions League. The London side lost a game at home against Valencia and made it difficult to qualify for the Champions League. As it seems, everything turned around after the match between Ajax and Chelsea.

1st half of the game

Ajax coach started with a perfect attacking line. Promes was playing on the left side, and Ziyech was playing on the right win. Tadic was on position for a center forward, and Van De Beek had a playmaker role.

The London side had problems with the squad. The main problem is indeed the absence of N’golo Kante. The French midfielder is a significant player for the national team and Chelsea. Kante has a groin injury and will be out for the next few weeks. At the same time, Lampard could not get help from Barkley and Rudiger. Both players are injured and will be out for one month. Barkley has an ankle injury, and Rudiger is out because of a groin injury.

1st half was exciting to watch. Ajax was attacking sharply, but teams could not score a goal to make everything easier. If we look at the statistics, the 1st half was very calm. Ajax could not shot on target, and Chelsea had only one shot on goal.

2nd half of the match

Ajax became sharper in the attack. We saw that coach substituted Promes and gave a chance to Neres. The Brazilian winger was excellent on the left-wing but could not make an impact.

We should praise Lampard because his decision changed the outcome of the match. Frank Lampard gave a chance to Pulisic on 67th minute and Batshuayi on 71st minute. American youngster Pulisic started an attack that ended with a goal. Pulisic gave a pass to Bashtuayi and forwards gave a lead to Chelsea on 86th minute.

Ajax had only 4 minutes left to save the match and score the game-tying goal. Unfortunately for Amsterdam fans, the club could not save the game. It was the first loss of Ajax in the Champions League this season.

After three rounds, Chelsea and Ajax have 6 points, and both clubs are fighting for the first position.
