We saw a great comeback from Chelsea at home stadium. Ajax could not keep the three-goal lead in London, so both teams have a chance to qualify for the Champions League play-offs.
Chelsea won a shocking match two weeks ago in Amsterdam. The whole game we saw that Ajax was playing correctly, but Chelsea’s late winning-goal changed everything. Till today’s event, Chelsea and Ajax had the same amount of points – six.
Ajax was in perfect shape as Amsterdam club could win the last two domestic matches. Chelsea is also excellent at Premier League and could get away win during the weekend.
1st half of the game
The game started, and Ajax scored a goal on the 2nd minute. Tammy Abraham scored their own goal after Promes cross from the left side. Ajax footballers were still in a happy mood when Pulisic dribbled through three players, and one of the Ajax’s defenders fouled him in the penalty area. The referee pointed to the penalty spot, and Chelsea got the right to score from a penalty kick. Jorginho was successful and scored a game-tying penalty on the 4th minute.
In just five minutes, fans in London saw two goals. It was not enough as players from both sides tried to attack more in the first half.
