AFC Ajax vs Liverpool: The champions League campaign for Ajax is all but over. To advance to the following round, Alfred Schreuder’s team needed to win by at least two goals, but they were severely defeated. However, Ajax’s chances of finishing third and advancing to the Europa League are extremely high.
Ajax will reflect on the game’s opening moments, when Steven Berghuis might have and ought to have secured a winning start. In the penalty area, Brian Brobbey sent the ball to the attacker, who had plenty of room but struck the post. The early opportunity demonstrated Ajax’s zeal, since they at least had a basic understanding of the assignment to score multiple times. After fifteen minutes, Berghuis attempted again from a great distance but missed. Jorge Sánchez also didn’t have any luck when he attempted.
But in the first half, Ajax appeared to lose composure. Less forcefully, Liverpool was pushed back, and when Andy Robertson fired strongly into the side net, Liverpool briefly threatened. Tadic, on the other hand, was unable to give Ajax the advantage. Tadic had time to fire after a cross from Brobbey, but Trent Alexander-Arnold blocked his path. Liverpool soon after lay the groundwork for the victory.
AFC Ajax vs Liverpool: Goals
Jordan Henderson got past Jorge Sánchez after he mishandled a high shot and delivered a beautiful ball past Calvin Bassey. Mohamed Salah, who replaced Remko Pasveer who had left, praised the pass. 0-1. Ajax’s goalie was unable to intercept the ball in time. Because Liverpool also scored at the start of the second half from Darwin Núñez and Harvey Elliott, the task was much more challenging and finally proved impossible.
After a corner from Robertson, Núñez, who had before wasted a significant opportunity to make it 1-0 and hit the post, rushed to the correct spot and scored in minute 49. Ajax was once again faced with a goal from a typical scenario. Then, following a through pass from Salah, Elliott struck the roof of the net.
In the current Champions League season, Ajax have already conceded fifteen goals. The Amsterdam team lost three consecutive European games with at least three goals conceded for the first time in club history. Ajax didn’t have many excellent opportunities to reciprocate. The future of the team most likely lies in the Europa League. Ajax won’t place last in the group until Rangers defeats Amsterdam by a score of at least four goals.
