15 SEP 2021; Sporting - Ajax; CL Group Match 1

Bericht door Orange14 » za sep 11, 2021 9:57 pm

Midweek Champions League opener for Ajax on Wednesday. They will need to play much better than they did against PEC Zwolle if they hope to get a result. EtH said it is a race against time for Steks and Klaassen who both have groin injuries. I don't know if Gorter will be fit as a possible substitute keeper otherwise we go with the two kids Setford and Raatsie. This is going to be a tough match and I hope for at least a draw.

Klaassen and Stekelenburg are unlikely to feature. The trouble is, Pasveer isn't much better at all. Gorter is also injured the length of absence is unknown. I expect Martinez to return and Blind at left back (our weakest spot bar the Goal keeping position and the number 9 position). Apart from that, there will be no other change, as Ten Hag doesn't like too much change.
I too would be happy with a draw in Lisbon, it's a tall order to win away to Sporting. Furthermore I have been following Dortmund they won 3-4 away to Leverkusen. Haaland is the reason why they can score many goals, but their defense has more holes in it than a swiss cheese. You heard of the group of death, well Ajax's group is the group of life. All to play for between the 3 sides.

Sporting have several key players who are out injured and one of their starting CBs, Coates, is suspended.

Latest update indicates that Goncalo Inacio and Tiago Tomas should be fit for the game against Ajax on Wednesday. Even though I would be happy with a draw, I just hope it isn't a similar case against Atalanta last season.

Klaassen did not travel to Portugal with the team so Berghuis will be in the MF. Stekelenburg did make the travel team as did Gorter who was injured while playing for Jong Oranje. All the other first team players are available except for Kudus who is still out injured.

I'll miss the match today as we have a very early choir call at the Synagogue. I don't want to watch just the first half and then wonder what happened. I'll try to catch the replay tomorrow night.

Blind at Lb is ok unless they have a very fast right winger! Pasveer is as good as Steks but Berghuis is not a real MF but ok to replace Klaassen. Ziyech was always gong to be very difficult to replace.

Berghuis has good link up play at number 10, he isn't fast enough as a winger.

Superb 1st half and Haller's finishing top class but Berghuis's goal was quality. Pasveer a dreadful mistake .If we can continue to play like this in the 2nd half it should be an easy win.
