Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

Erik ten Hag can't help but be proud.

He sees Ajax finishing one of the best European matches under his leadership.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

57' GOAL Ajax!

3-0



The evening for Ajax is getting nicer and nicer.

Antony sends the ball with a lot of feeling into the far corner with the left, leaving the keeper without a chance.

Even the most positive Ajax fans will hardly have taken into account this position against the German top club.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

53 'It was not Donyell Malen's evening.

After a very anonymous performance, the former PSV player is replaced just under ten minutes after the break.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

49 'Ajax is also immediately close to a goal in the second half.

Gravenberch can shoot from close range, but blasts the ball against Dortmund's keeper.

47 'Pasveer prevents Ajax from conceding a goal in the second minute after the break.

Who else but Haaland turns up in front of the goalkeeper, who hits the ball just enough to lift it against the crossbar.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

46' Kick-off!



Will Ajax continue the excellent line from the first half, or did Dortmund coach Marco Rose come up with a ruse at halftime?

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

Rest: 2-0



This first showdown of Ajax this season at the very highest level, Erik ten Hag's team is passing brilliantly for the time being.

An own goal from Reus and a goal from Blind make it 2-0 halfway through and Borussia Dortmund can't even complain about that.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

45 + 1 'He was invisible until now, but there is almost the connection goal of Haaland.

However, after the Norwegian has put Timber aside, he comes across Pasveer.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

45 'A minute is added to the first half.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

42 'A wonderful free kick from Gravenberch ends up on the post via Kobel's fingertips.

The free kick was awarded after a foul on Tadic van Witsel, who can be happy that he is penalized with yellow and not with red.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

37 'Ajax was perhaps a bit fortunate with 2-0, but after that second goal, they are lord and master.

The team from Amsterdam is happily combining it and it seems to be waiting for the third goal.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

32 'Dortmund has completely lost it after the 2-0 and Ajax could benefit from that.

Berghuis misses a great chance to make it 3-0 and moments later a header from Martínez goes just wide.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

Because of this shot by Daley Blind, Ajax is in excellent shape after half an hour.

Yesss 🔥 Without playing magnificently, Ajax is already on a 2-0 lead against Dortmund 😱 This is also a nice goal from Daley Blind 👌 #ZiggoSport #UCL #AJABVB

28 'Almost even a 3-0 lead for Ajax.

Berghuis shoots just wide, although in retrospect he could have beaten Haller, who was in a slightly better position.

25' GOAL Ajax!

2-0



And there it is even 2-0 for the team from Amsterdam!

Sébastien Haller puts the ball back to the goal excellently, after which Daley Blind hits the inside of the post from the edge of the penalty area.

Ajax could not have wished for a better start!

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

Thanks to this unintentional backwards leader of Marco Reus, Ajax is ahead.

Magnificent!

😍Captain Tadic puts Ajax ahead against Dortmund with a Schöne-like free kick 🎯Another fantastic start for the team from Amsterdam!

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

A hopeful statistic for Ajax: the team has never lost a group match in the Champions League in which it made the opening goal.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

18 'Sloppy loss of the ball by Antony almost costs Ajax dearly.

Haaland passes the ball tightly, but none of his teammates can put a foot against the ball.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

11' GOAL Ajax!

1-0



There is Ajax's early lead!

Tadic walks away cheering, but it is indeed Reus who grazes the ball from a free kick by the Serb with his head and thus leaves his own keeper without a chance.

9 'Out of nowhere a huge opportunity for Ajax.

Antony appears on the right, but the Brazilian encounters the well-executed goalkeeper Kobel.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

2 'Due to the fireworks that were set off just before kick-off, the players can hardly be discerned between the smoke in the opening minutes.

We dare to say that nothing significant has happened for either purpose.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

1 'The ball is rolling!

How does Ajax withstand this showdown with the German top club?

The Champions League tune sounds through the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund is about to start.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

Erik ten Hag explains shortly before kick-off why Steven Berghuis is preferred over Davy Klaassen.

"The moment Steven came into the team, he did a great job," says the trainer.

"And he only grows in that role. Then you have to continue to give him that chance. Klaassen has to go a bit further to fight his way back into the team."

Then we will really focus on the squatter that starts at 9 p.m. in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Club Brugge saves the honor on behalf of the home team.

A personal success for Hans Vanaken, who also managed to score in his third Champions League match of this season.

Bas Dost has now entered the field with the Belgians.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

Cole Palmer is the third teenager to score for Manchester City in the Champions League.

3 - Cole Palmer has become only the third teenager to score in the UEFA Champions League for Manchester City after Phil Foden and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

67' GOAL Manchester City!

0-4



A brilliant moment for Cole Palmer.

The only nineteen-year-old midfielder has only been on the field for three minutes and makes his first goal in the City shirt after a smooth attack.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

57 'The Dutch contribution to the field is more than doubled within a minute.

Nathan Ake comes in at Manchester City.

Ruud Vormer is allowed to keep Noa Lang company with the home team, for which there seems to be little honor to be gained tonight.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

It was already a lot about him in the run-up to the match and of course Erling Haaland will soon also be in the base at Borussia Dortmund.

The Norwegian star player is at the forefront with former PSV player Donyell Malen.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

54' GOAL Manchester City!

0-3



Manchester City will continue after the break what it was already doing in the first half.

De Bruyne gives a smart pass to Walker, who anticipates well and slides the ball into the far corner.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

Kick off second half!



The second half has started in both Bruges and Istanbul.

Are Manchester City and Sporting CP still in trouble?

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund · a few seconds ago

The line-up of Ajax is known.

Trainer Erik ten Hag prefers Steven Berghuis to Davy Klaassen in midfield.



Ajax setup:


Pasveer;

Mazraoui, Timber, Martinez, Blind;

Álvarez, Berghuis, Gravenberch;

Anthony, Haller, Tadic.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

PEACE!



The away teams lead halfway through the early Champions League matches.

A supreme Manchester City is 0-2 ahead of Club Brugge.

In the group of Ajax Sporting CP in Istanbul also has a margin of two goals against Besiktas.

Besiktas-Sporting a few seconds ago

45+1' How sour for Besiktas!

Alex Teixeira hits the mark in a phenomenal way, but the party is canceled because the Brazilian turned out to be offside with one foot.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

44' GOAL Manchester City!

0-2



Also in Bruges, goals are scored from the spot.

Riyad Mahrez hits the spot after being knocked to the ground by Stanley Nsoki himself.

Besiktas-Sporting a few seconds ago

44' GOAL Sporting!

1-3



Domagoj Vida, better known in the Netherlands as the 'wink-Croatian', unfortunately gets the ball on his arm during an aerial duel.

Referee and VAR are inexorable: a penalty, which is used by Pablo Sarabia.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

João Cancelo neatly taps the ball past Simon Mignolet to score his second goal in his last three Champions League matches.

Club Brugge-Manchester City · a few seconds ago

30' GOAL Manchester City!

0-1



After two disallowed goals, this time it really hit the mark for Manchester City.

João Cancelo times perfectly on a deep ball from Phil Foden and taps the ball past the keeper in the short corner.

Besiktas-Sporting a few seconds ago

27' GOAL Sporting!

1-2



And for the third time in the first half hour, a goal is scored from a corner.

Again it is Sebastián Coates who does it, this time with his foot.

In terms of organization, there is quite a bit going wrong with both teams, who earlier this group stage both lost to Ajax and Borussia Dortmund.

Besiktas-Sporting a few seconds ago

24' GOAL Besiktas!

1-1



Sporting cannot enjoy the lead for long, because Cyle Larin makes it 1-1.

Like Coates on the other side, he heads out from a corner.

Anger at the Sporting players, who think that a violation has been handed out, but the referee does not want to hear about that.

Besiktas-Sporting a few seconds ago

15' GOAL Sporting!

0-1



While Besiktas looked much stronger in the first fifteen minutes, it is Sporting that takes the lead.

Sebastián Coates heads in from a corner.
