Daley Blind liked that he was named the best player.

"I think I played a good game, but I wasn't the only one," he said.

"It's a difficult choice for the people who have to decide that, I feel a bit sorry for them tonight. But I'm glad I made it. This was a match at a very high level. That's not nothing, I think At this level we can rise to great heights. That doesn't happen by itself, we work hard for it."

Where there is a jubilant atmosphere at Ajax, it became an evening to quickly forget for Donyell Malen and the whole of Dortmund.

"This was a terrible evening. We are not proud of this", responds the striker, who was replaced after an hour of play.

"Ajax played with a lot of intensity and was good on the ball. We couldn't offer much in return. They just deserved to win."

Erik ten Hag looked in amazement at the performances of his players.

"I enjoyed the team. They played fantastic. Everything was right tonight", he responded to

RTL 7

.

"We were great in possession, but also in putting pressure on. We created many chances and played well on zero. Haaland cannot be eliminated completely, but we did that very well."

However, he also had a point of criticism.

"There were still a lot of learning moments. If we really want to get far, things will have to be even better in certain areas."

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

Remko Pasveer made a slip in the first game against Sporting CP, but tonight against Borussia Dortmund he took revenge.

The keeper kept star player Haaland from scoring three times.

"I'm so glad I was important to the club now," he said.

"But the defenders were also sharp and barely gave anything away. It was really a team effort."

Steven Berghuis was one of the stars at Ajax tonight.

The midfielder, who was initially preferred over Davy Klaassen, enjoyed the game of his club and the atmosphere in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

"We played well. We were strong on the ball and created many opportunities with depth and combination play," he responds to

RTL7

.

"I think the public will go home satisfied."

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

It is the first time since the 1995/1996 season that Ajax has won the first three group matches in the Champions League.

Then the adventure only ended in the final, in which Juventus was just too strong.

The standings in group C:

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

Past!

A gala performance by Ajax.

It will be 4-0 in the Johan Cruijff ArenA and that is not even flattering.

The team from Amsterdam can hardly miss a place in the knockout phase of the Champions League.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

90 'Daramy is still looking forward to it and tries to distinguish himself with some nice passing actions.

Dortmund especially longs for the end and sees that 3 minutes extra time are added to the game.

83 'Haller and Mazraoui come to the side to give Rensch and Daramy some playing time on this Champions League evening that is memorable for Ajax.

S茅bastien Haller is the first Ajax player to score in his first three Champions League matches for the club.

With a total of six hits, he also leads the top scorers list.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

72' GOAL Ajax!

4-0



Haller hadn't scored yet tonight, but the French Ivorian is now changing that.

He heads neatly between two Dortmund defenders.

It is really the number two in Germany who gets to see all corners of the field in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Impressive!

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

68 'Under a thunderous applause, Berghuis, one of the stars tonight, goes to the side.

He will be replaced by Klaassen, who will have been watching with some mixed feelings from the side.

67 'The battle between Haaland and Pasveer is won with a clear difference by the latter.

For the third time tonight, the keeper keeps the Norwegian star player from scoring.

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 路 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 路 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 路 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 路 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 路 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 路 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 路 a few seconds ago

45 'A minute is added to the first half.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 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 路 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 路 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 Mart铆nez goes just wide.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

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

Yesss 馃敟 Without playing magnificently, Ajax is already on a 2-0 lead against Dortmund 馃槺 This is also a nice goal from Daley Blind 馃憣 #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.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

25' GOAL Ajax!

2-0



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

S茅bastien 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 路 a few seconds ago

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

Magnificent!

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 路 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 路 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.

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

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 路 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 路 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 路 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."

Ajax-Borussia Dortmund 路 a few seconds ago

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

Ajax and Borussia Dortmund fight in a direct duel for the first place in group C.

Besiktas-Sporting a few seconds ago

90' GOAL Sporting!

1-4



With a wonderfully placed shot into the far corner, Paulinho makes it 1-4.

Sporting will book a remarkably simple victory in Istanbul.
