Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

Peace!

For the time being, it is a game of chess that Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov would be ashamed of in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Ajax has a slight predominance, even if that is also because Atalanta allows it.

The best chance is for the Italians, who see Marten de Roon shooting next to the intersection.

Ajax is closest to a goal via Brian Brobbey, but the young striker heads straight into the hands of Gollini.

Because the chances are also very scarce, the 0-0 half time score is a logical consequence.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

45 + 3 'Brobbey's head is all right again, as witnessed by this hard header after a good cross from Antony.

The bet disappears into the hands of Gollini, but does mark the first attempt at Ajax's goal.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

45 + 1 'Because of Brobbey's injury treatment, three minutes of injury time are added.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

45 'The repair work at Brobbey has been completed, although he has to leave the field for a while.

Ajax temporarily with one man less, while the rest is coming.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

42 'Brobbey is briefly off the map after a serious collision with teammate Tagliafico.

It is of course made of reinforced concrete, so that is quite important.

The referee immediately stops play because it may be a head injury.

PSG-Basaksehir · a few seconds ago

Mitchel Bakker saw his goal be rejected, but still has enough reason to laugh.

He and his team are already on a 3-0 lead at halftime and seems to be on the way to group victory in group H.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

38 'In this first half it is still mainly a tactical joust.

Atalanta is at peace with a conservative style of play, knowing that a draw will suffice.

In the meantime Ajax has certainly not yet pulled out all the stops in the search for the crucial goal.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

34 'The free kick creates a dangerous moment, when Onana only half punches the ball.

However, there is a whistle because of offside, so Ajax will survive this anyway.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

33 'Mazraoui taps Pessina down, giving Atalanta a free kick in a place with opportunities.

Alarm phase one for Ajax.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

Brian Brobbey is doing fine in the striker for the time being.

The very strong attacker is hardly to get off the ball by the defenders of Atalanta and therefore acts as an excellent stepping stone to date.

PSG-Basaksehir · a few seconds ago

42 'GOAL PSG!

3-0



The VAR comes back on the line at Makkelie and indicates that he has seen a foul on Neymar.

The Dutch referee agrees and puts the ball on the dot.

Mbappé then shoots the ball with the help of the right post behind goalkeeper Gunok.

PSG-Basaksehir · a few seconds ago

39 'Goal PSG Rejected! 

Mitchel Bakker thought he would sign for his first Champions League goal of his career, but the VAR has found it offside.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

27 'A long ball bounces well for Gosens, who also takes it nicely on the slipper, but hits well over.

The flag then also goes up for offside.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

Every Ajax player in possession of the ball is almost immediately harassed by a swarm of Atalanta players.

Partly because of this, despite a slight field predominance, Ajax does not yet have real chances in the first quarter.

PSG-Basaksehir · a few seconds ago

38 'GOAL Neymar!

2-0



Neymar is put alone in front of the goalkeeper on the counter and waits until he can shoot the ball past the goalkeeper.

He does an excellent job and with that he signs for his second of the evening.

He thus signs for his 40th goal in the Champions League.

He is therefore the Brazilian with the most goals in the million ball.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

22 'The first yellow card of the match is for Gravenberch, who loses the ball himself and then pulls the emergency brake at Zapata.

a few seconds ago

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

20 'De Roon has the chance to hurt his fellow countrymen when he can lash out after a good bounce from Zapata.

The midfielder shoots from the edge of the penalty area a meter next to the intersection.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

The image of the match so far: Ajax tries to play towards the goal with fast positional play, but the team from Amsterdam is constantly being chased by the players of Atalanta.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

15 'Ajax comes to a real attack for the first time.

Brobbey is played hard and keeps two defenders away.

The striker puts back on Mazraoui, whose shot is blocked.

From the following corner, Gravenberch eventually shoots over, but this is a glimpse of the battle plan as Ten Hag wants to see it.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

12 'Ten Hag expected that Atalanta would also want to take control in this game, but that is not the case in the first minutes.

The Italians only catch Ajax halfway through their own half and keep the spaces small, while they watch for the counter blow.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

8 'Ajax tries to play through it with fast combinations, but many passes do not arrive or only half arrive.

a few seconds ago

PSG-Basaksehir · a few seconds ago

21 'GOAL PSG!

1-0



Neymar gets the ball on the edge of the penalty area from Veratti.

The Brazilian passes his direct opponent and hits the mark: 1-0.

5 'The opening phase is understandably a bit nervous on both sides.

Atalanta mainly leaves the ball to Ajax and is looking for the quick counter shot.

The team from Amsterdam play the ball around in the search for a hole in the tight-knit Italian defense.

FC Midtjylland-Liverpool a few seconds ago

2 'GOAL Liverpool!

0-1



A lightning start from the English visiting Midtjylland.

Mohamed Salah, one of the few players who is not spared, takes advantage of a mistake in the Danish defense: 0-1.

Before the first whistle, all players and the referees gather around the center circle to make a clear statement against racism.

NO TO RACISM.

Kick-off!

Ajax has started the last and all-deciding group match in this Champions League season.

The team from Amsterdam must beat Atalanta to hibernate, otherwise they will end up in the Europa League after the winter break.

The players and arbitration have reported on the field, while the well-known Champions League hymn blares through the Johan Cruijff Arena.

What a match to make your Champions League debut for Ajax.

The saying 'throw someone to the lions' has rarely been more applicable than tonight to Brian Brobbey.

Dusan Tadic warms up.

Can the Serbian captain of Ajax take his team by the hand again tonight?

These are the games where players like him are looked at.

Ten Hag: 'Play with your heart, but keep a cool head'


Ajax coach Erik ten Hag expects a real battle between his team and Atalanta.

"We want to take the initiative from behind and take control, but they will try that too. You have to play with your heart, but keep a cool head. We must not allow ourselves to be provoked or intimidated," said Ten Hag at

SBS

.



Ten Hag also discusses his position.

"We saw in the away match that we can use a type of player like Traoré well in the front. Brobbey is a similar type and also very fast. They put a lot of pressure and then you come across a lot one against one."

Ajax's coach does not want to dwell too long on the players he misses.

"It's annoying that a player like Blind isn't there, but you always have to look at the players you do have."

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

The heads are quite tense with the Ajax players when they gather for the warm-up.

Not long anymore.

So there are no supporters present in the Arena in a minute, but the Ajax fans gave their heroes a boost before the start.

The players bus was welcomed outside the stadium with lots of fireworks and singing.

Video

The players bus had to stop for a while on the way to JC Arena.

Why?

Well, gathered #Ajax supporters wanted to wish the players good luck.

Delicious images !!

For example, the Johan Cruijff Arena is currently there.

Tonight Ajax will also have to do without support from the supporters in the stadium.

Empty stadium ... 💔Where are you watching?

Resumption of PSG-Basaksehir


Yesterday the match between PSG and Basaksehir was halted in the thirteenth minute after a racism incident involving the fourth man.

With a completely new arbitration, the match will be played out today.

Danny Makkelie has taken on the task and whistles at 6.55 pm for the start, after which the clock starts running again from the thirteenth minute.

Both teams must start with the same line-ups as yesterday.



PSG line-up:

Navas;

Florenzi, Marquinhos, Danilo, Kimpembe, Bakker;

Verratti, Paredes, Rafinha;

Mbappe, Neymar.



Basaksehir line-up:

Gunok, Rafael, Ponck, Topal, Kaldirim, Ozcan, Tekdemir, Kahveci;

Gulbrandsen, Crivelli, Türüc.

Ajax-Atalanta · a few seconds ago

The match is also called the 'duel of 12 million', because the winner of the mutual battle can credit that amount.

A large part of this amount comes from the 9.5 million euros bonus that a club receives when the eighth finals are reached.

In addition, a premium of 2.7 million euros is guaranteed for every victory in the Champions League.

Erik ten Hag therefore gives confidence to the young Brian Brobbey in this crucial match.

The eighteen-year-old striker only recently made his debut for the main force, in the Eredivisie match with Fortuna Sittard, and then immediately scored.

In the Champions League he made less than a minute for Ajax.

FC Midtjylland-Liverpool a few seconds ago

Liverpool with B-team against FC Midtjylland


There is no wintering in Europe at stake in the game between FC Midtjylland and Liverpool.

The Danes have already been eliminated and Liverpool are already assured of the Champions League knockout phase.

As a result, both teams play with quite a few changes to the starting line-up.

With a victory, especially for the Danes, there is an interesting competition premium of 2.7 million in the offing. 



Line-up FC Midtjylland

: Hansen;

Cools, Sviatchenko, Scholz, Paulinho;

Cajuste, Onyeka, Evander;

Dreyer, Kaba, Mabil Line-

Kelleher;

Alexander-Arnold, R. Williams, Fabinho Tsimikas;

In fact, there is the line-up of Atalanta already. As usual, Orange internationals Hans Hateboer and Marten de Roon have a basic place.

Robin Gosens can also play as usual, despite a positive corona test last week.

This turned out to be false positive.

Of course Duván Zapata is also at the kick-off, the striker scored two more times against Ajax in Bergamo.

: Gollini;

Toloi, Romero, Djimsiti;

There is the official line-up of Ajax, which will indeed start the game with Martínez and Brobbey.

It is striking that in addition to Blind and Traoré, David Neres is not even on the reserve bench and will therefore not take action.

XI - Hit '♥ ️' if you believe in our boys.
