54' GOAL Ajax!


It is equal in Istanbul!

Martínez sends Tagliafico deep with a nice pass, who can just put one foot against the ball and thus gives Haller an unmissable opportunity.

The Frenchman scores in open goal and scores his eighth Champions League goal of the season.

Of the last thirty matches that Ajax was halfway behind in the Champions League, Ajax managed to win only one.

"Remko Pasveer shows that he is the best goalkeeper in the Netherlands", Ajax coach Erik ten Hag begins his explanation about the position at

Ziggo Sport


"But the season is still long and André has not been goalkeeper for a while. He has already played for Cameroon, but he also has to start goalkeeping more for Ajax. Can André still become the first keeper? At the moment Remko is the best keeper of the Netherlands and I expect he can get even better."

How can Ajax still miss group win?

Sporting CP is the only club that can still keep Ajax from winning a group, but then three things have to happen: Ajax must lose to Besiktas, Sporting must win against Borussia Dortmund and Ajax must lose in two weeks with a score greater than 1-5 against sports.

In addition to Onana, Nicolás Tagliafico and David Neres also make their appearance in the starting eleven.

The same goes for Perr Schuurs and Mohamed Daramy.

Champions League top scorer Sebastian Haller, good for seven goals, is struggling with minor complaints and is getting rest.

The same goes for Antony and Daley Blind, who both start on the bench.

Mazraoui, Schuurs, Martínez, Tagliafico;

Gravenberch, Berghuis, Klaassen;

Neres, Tadic, Daramy.

In September Onana was allowed to train again and since the beginning of November he is eligible to play again.

The goalkeeper has been part of the main squad for several weeks, but has not yet played.

He played his last match for Ajax on January 31 of this year.

Onana has been at odds with the club management for some time, because he does not want to extend his expiring contract.

In addition, Pasveer is doing well.

Onana already played for Cameroon during the last international match.

Onana makes his comeback at Ajax after ten months

André Onana makes his comeback under the bar at Ajax.

The 25-year-old keeper, who has served a doping suspension, is given a new chance by trainer Erik ten Hag.

The coach already announced at a press conference on Tuesday that he is sending a significantly changed team into the field.

He did not yet specify which players will play.

Onana's starting position is at the expense of Remko Pasveer, who is the first goalkeeper in the Johan Cruijff ArenA this season.
