Acid first defeat for Ajax in CL
Ajax has encountered the first defeat in the Champions League. The team from Amsterdam are at least equivalent to Chelsea, but are destroyed by a 1-1 goal by substitute Michy Batshuayi. It is also the first goal for Ajax in this edition of the million ball. It is also not a problem for Ajax, because in the first half a hit by Quincy Promes is rejected due to offside and after the break Edson Álvarez hits the post with a header.

Ajax-Chelsea · 4 minutes ago

90 + 4 'It's over, Ajax suffers the first defeat in the Champions League! With a late goal from Michy Batshuayi, Chelsea won 0-1 in Amsterdam.

Ajax-Chelsea · 6 minutes ago

90 + 3 'Chelsea keeps the ball in the corner of the field and prevents Ajax from thinking of attacks. Is there another miracle for the people of Amsterdam?

Ajax-Chelsea · 7 minutes ago

90 + 1 'Batshuayi tries from a distance. The substitute's attempt is not hard, but Ajax's goalkeeper makes a corner of it. That does not produce anything, but this costs Ajax a lot of valuable time.

Ajax-Chelsea · 10 minutes ago

89 'Ajax still has a few minutes to force a goal and so Ten Hag brings two players who have experience with that with Siem de Jong and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. The team from Amsterdam throw everything on a final offensive to drag one point out of the fire.

Ajax-Chelsea · 13 minutes ago

86 'GOAL Chelsea! 0-1

Ajax gets the lid on the nose. Substitute Michy Batshuayi has been close twice and is now accurate. Christian Pulisic centers from the left, after which the Belgian striker hits the bottom of the bar. It is Ajax's first goal in this Champions League season, but one with potentially far-reaching consequences.

Ajax-Chelsea · 14 minutes ago

84 'Goodness, Tadic, you play that badly. The captain and Neres go in pairs to the remaining defense, but the Serb pushes the ball into the feet of a Chelsea defender. Much more had been there.

Ajax-Chelsea · 16 minutes ago

83 'Van de Beek touches Tadic's leg with something that stands in the middle between a shot and a cross. Because the ball is so hard, the Serbian does not get the ball on goal with the necessary force.

Ajax-Chelsea · 18 minutes ago

81 'A shot by substitute Pulisic does not roll that far past the post. We just said that Ajax can still win this match, but with the fast-paced, agile and most of all unpredictable Chelsea attackers, an English win is certainly not excluded.

Ajax-Chelsea · 22 minutes ago

76 'Another fifteen minutes to go in this little exciting second half. Ajax has more difficulty with Chelsea after the break, but can still win this match. One moment is enough and Ajax has enough players who can provide such a moment.

Ajax-Chelsea · 23 minutes ago

The players of Ajax disagree with a decision of referee Hategan.

Ajax-Chelsea · 24 minutes ago

74 'Ajax lacks precision in the second half, as with this ball from Ziyech on Promes. The offside player can only reach the ball with the tip of his toe, not enough to bring the toy under control. It is Promes' last action, relieved by David Neres.

Ajax-Chelsea · 26 minutes ago

73 'There is the next chance for Batshuayi and this is a lot bigger. The ball lingers after a cracked shot, but the new attack leader hits hard. He also seems to be offside, but because the ball does not go in, it is no longer checked.

Ajax-Chelsea · 27 minutes ago

72 'Batshuayi, who has just entered, immediately gets a chance. The Belgian gets the ball on goal from a difficult angle. Because there is little speed behind it, Onana can easily pick up.

Ajax-Chelsea · 31 minutes ago

67 'Ajax tries to take the initiative back to itself and that works out quite well. A tight cross from Dest cannot be walked in by a teammate. The team from Amsterdam are looking for the opening goal, but remain cautious for the quick English outbreaks.

Ajax-Chelsea · 33 minutes ago

Edson Álvarez header on the post. The Mexican (and everyone who has a warm heart for Ajax) is out of luck, because very little is wrong with his header.

PAAL! Ajax is very close to a lead against Chelsea, but the pole stands in the way ... 💥💥 #veronicainside #UCL #ajache

RB Leipzig-FC Zenit · 39 minutes ago

59 'GOAL RB Leipzig! 2-1

Marcel Sabitzer gives the Germans the lead with a grandiose goal. The playmaker takes the ball wonderfully on his instep and aims the leather with surgical precision in the far intersection. Phenomenal hit by the Austrian.

Ajax-Chelsea · 39 minutes ago

59 ' Post Ajax! A flying header from Álvarez seems destined for the far corner, but the Mexican sees his bet landed on the post. Moments later, Blind moors, but Arrizabalaga is on the ground in time.

Ajax-Chelsea · 40 minutes ago

59 'Ajax reports again near the goal of Arrizabalaga. A shot from Tadic is turned into a corner.

Ajax-Chelsea · 42 minutes ago

56 'Chelsea started best in the second half, without becoming dangerous. Frank Lampard's team cherishes a lot of ball possession, but does not do much with it yet.

Ajax-Chelsea · 44 minutes ago

Quincy Promes is disappointed that his goal is rejected.

RB Leipzig-FC Zenit · one hour ago

50 'GOAL RB Leipzig! 1-1

RB Leipzig is on the same level as FC Zenit soon after the break. Konrad Laimer appreciates a subtle ball by Marcel Sabitzer and pushes the ball into the long corner.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

A hopeful statistic for Ajax: the last nine goals of the team from Amsterdam in home games fell in the second half.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

48 'Tadic receives the first yellow card (for players on the field) of the match. The Serb bumbly kills Willian.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

47 'Tadic tries to pounce his way through the Chelsea defense and remains a corner. It is finally headed by Álvarez through a Chelsea defender.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

46 'The second half has begun, does Ajax succeed in scoring (valid) after the break? Both teams left the changing rooms unchanged.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

Dusan Tadic cannot yet leave his mark on the competition. The Serbian striker is rare in the game. Is that going to change in the second half?

20 - Dusan Tadic had fewer touches than any other outfield player during the first half or #AJACHE (20) and is yet to fire a single shot or register a touch in Chelsea's box. Seek.

The rejected goal of Quincy Promes in the picture. Say it: rightly or not?

VAR says no goal !! 🤬 Promes is fraction offside as it turns out and so still 0-0 #ZiggoSport #AJACHE #UCL

The moment arbitrator Ovidiu Hategan rejects Promes' goal.

Not the message that the players and supporters of Ajax wanted to see on the big screens of the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

Here Quincy Promes celebrates the party with the supporters, but a little later he will see his goal rejected by the arbitration to his horror.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

Ajax is slightly better than Chelsea in the first half, but it cannot be called a real preponderance. The team from Amsterdam does score, but after intervention from the VAR the goal of Quincy Promes is rejected because of offside.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

45 + 1 'The rest signal sounds, the teams look for the changing rooms with a 0-0 position.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

45 'Ziyech tries again from a distance, but produces another stop. The extra playing time in the first half is one minute.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

43 'Azpilicueta suddenly has oceans of space and that is seen by Mount. The rising right back takes the ball well, but hits the goal of Onana. There it was completely open at Ajax in the back left.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

40 'Promes can almost take revenge for the failed goal, but this time his bet is blocked in time by Azpilicueta.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

36 'Goal rejected! According to the VAR, Quincy Promes is one millimeter offside and so referee Hategan is told in his ear that he must reject the goal. It therefore remains 0-0 in the ArenA.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

35 'GOAL Ajax! 1-0

Quincy Promes is quite the man of the last few weeks at Ajax and he is continuing his good series tonight. A pass from Hakim Ziyech is touched on the way and therefore falls just right for the offside player at the second post. Promes only has to put his foot against the ball.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

35 'The field in the ArenA is not of the best quality. Many players slip and the turf flies through the air at each game. It certainly does not benefit the game.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

33 'Hudson-Odoi comes on the left for a long time, but sees his cross end up in the hands of Onana. The left winger of Chelsea is the most dangerous man on the English side and gives Dest and Veltman a handful of work.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

31 'The match is fairly balanced in the first half hour. Both teams are looking for the attack, but are not yet realizing opportunities.

RB Leipzig-FC Zenit · one hour ago

25 'GOAL FC Zenit! 0-1

In the other game that started at 6:55 PM, the score is opened. Yaroslav Rakitsky chases the ball with a volley in the far corner and brings FC Zenit ahead in Leipzig.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

27 'A pass from the left is poorly processed by the Ajax defense, after which the ball falls at Hudson-Odio's feet. The winger shoots a little wildly wide and doesn't seem to realize how much time and space he actually has.

Ajax-Chelsea · one hour ago

Hakim Ziyech tries to squeeze past Fikayo Tomori, but the Chelsea defender doesn't allow that.

Ajax-Chelsea · 2 hours ago

23 'Striking moment: the first yellow card of the match is not for a player, but someone on the couch. Jody Morris, Frank Lampard's assistant, goes to court for arbitrator Hategan because he has called something.

Ajax-Chelsea · 2 hours ago

22 'He already demonstrated to Valencia that Ziyech has a great long shot in the legs. The fact that the playmaker now shoots the ball into the second ring is therefore only forgiven.

Ajax-Chelsea · 2 hours ago

As a player, Frank Lampard is unbeaten in the ArenA. On behalf of England, he played three draws against the Dutch national team, while winning the final of the Europa League with Chelsea in 2013.

Ajax-Chelsea · 2 hours ago

Donny van de Beek in a duel. The midfielder got the biggest chance so far, but saw his bet blocked.

Ajax-Chelsea · 2 hours ago

17 'Ajax does not allow Chelsea a second's rest when the English have possession. Londoners are hunted everywhere on the field and therefore suffer a lot of loss of ball. The question is whether the team from Amsterdam can sustain this throughout the game.
