Daley Blind, Matthijs de ligt and Kasper Dolberg experience with Ajax beautiful adventures in the Champions League.
For Ajax, there is already quite an adventure in the kampioenenbal. Through three preliminary rounds, in which Sturm Graz, Standard Liege and Dinamo Kiev was defeated, reached the team of trainer Erik ten Hag of the group stage. Therein proved to be only the German powerhouse Bayern Munich a slightly better outcome. It was settled with Benfica and AEK Athens, making Ajax as number 2 of the group to the knock-out stages reached. The positive results led to the Amsterdam club for over sixty million euros.
The battle for the overall victory in the Champions League at the end of February of next year resumed with the knock-out stages.
Who can Ajax take?
His fifth place at the Golden Ball-the election was a joke. But will Lionel Messi be calculated against Ajax a chance to show that he is the best footballer of the world? After the audience of PSV Eindhoven would, in that case, the Ajax-supporters are able to marvel at the Argentine ball wizard. Perhaps they look at, however, even more to the arrival of Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan, who between 2007 and 2011, and the red-and-white shirt wearing, sticking out his love for the Amsterdam club is not under the chairs or benches. He goes after 111 goals in 159 matches for Ajax, his club now hurt?
The link to Paris Saint-Germain and his Instagram-friend Kylian Mbappé would Frenkie de Jong special. The midfielder of Ajax, who in the 2-3 of Bayern Munich, ugly in the wrong, has his choice for next season at PSG and after France and the Netherlands and the Netherlands-and France again, the French prodigy Mbappé to show that that 75 million is worth. And incidentally, he can also Neymar to convince, while Matthijs de ligt, after Robert Lewandowski back should be charging for a clash with a striker of world renown: Edison Cavani.
Below you can view how big the chance is that some clubs together lots:
Rolls Juventus out of the tube, then get the Johan Cruijff ArenA visit from none other than Cristiano Ronaldo. The Ajax-fans keep bad memories of the Portuguese star, because in the service of Real Madrid he made in six Champions League matches as many as seven goals against Ajax. However, the danger with Juventus not only Ronaldo. With Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and Miralem Pjanic has the Turin powerhouse with great attacking weapons. Veterans Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli to keep in the back of the lock on the door.
Ajax can boast good stats against Manchester City, against whom, in the past, twice played in the European context. Both times it was in 2012. In the Johan Cruijff ArenA, won the team of former coach Frank de Boer in a spectacular duel with 3-1 of the English. In Manchester it was, by two hits of Siem de Jong, 2-2. The Manchester City of when is, however, not to compare with the voetbalmachine of now. The sterrenselectie of Pep Guardiola and are valid at this moment perhaps the strongest team in the world and is also the worst possible draw for Ajax. Still, it would be a diptych with the British guarantee for spectacle. With rasartiesten as Leroy Sané, Sergio Agüero, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne plays City like Ajax full on the attack, making it public might make for just such a voetbalshow as Wednesday against Bayern.
On paper, it is Borussia Dortmund from a slightly different order than, for example, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona or Manchester City. But make no mistake. That Schwarzgelben are working on an impressive season in the Bundesliga, in which the a lead of up to nine points on Bayern Munich. Under Swiss trainer Lucien Favre is playing Dortmund spectacular football, that also in the Champions League are coming to fruition. So were the Germans Atletico Madrid up 4-0 on the mat. With ten goals in thirteen matches, the Spanish striker Paco Alcacer eye-catcher.
2-0, 0-4, 3-0, 0-3, 1-4, 4-1. Here are the shocking results of Ajax against Real Madrid in this century. Between 2010 and 2013 were the two teams met six times against each other six times were the Pitch is far too strong. Still, it would be a new encounter with Real Madrid do indeed offer opportunities for Ajax. The reigning Champions League winner has after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and coach Zinedine Zidane a jacket taken off. Real lost in the Spanish league five times, is only fourth and internally, it is restless. Coach Julen Lopetegui was early in the season, traded for Santiago Solari, midfielder Isco is messed up with the Real fans and star player Sergio Ramos tested newly positive in a doping test. Can Ajax take advantage of all the bickering?
FC Porto seems to advance the most favourable draw for Ajax. In the Portuguese runs one former Ajax-player around, but the chance of that for a while, in Amsterdam, the return is nil. Riechedly Bazoer is on a tangent and ended up in Portugal, where he is no longer a part of the main force. Ajax counted in the Champions League already with a Portuguese club. Against Benfica, it was 1-0 and 1-1. That team has in the Portuguese league, however, four points less than FC Porto, which is a leader and with goalkeeper Iker Casillas is a big name in his selection.
Bayern Munich is the eighth group winners, but because Ajax the Germans in the group stage struck is a new link excluded.
