The team of Ten Hag, after completing the three qualifying prior, he managed to finish undefeated in the group stage, where they threatened the leadership of the Bayern
The goal of the season was simply to access the group stage, but then dared to discuss until the last moment the leadership at Bayern. The Ajax, after three seasons away from the elite, he was reborn this season in Europe out of the hand of Erik ten Hag. Undefeated in the six days of the league, with a football that aims to combine the pressure field opponent with the mastery of the game, the club ajacied is presented as one of the more refreshing trends of the season.
The atmosphere in the Johan Cruyff Sand recalls two decades ago, when the Ajax rubbed shoulders with the old aristocracy of continental football. The adventure, begun the 25 of July before the Sturm Graz, has stretched up to this crossing of the second round against Real Madrid. On average, three heats, pre-and a league where they remained unbeaten in six days.
The enthusiasm of the fans remains intact despite chaining four seasons without lifting a title. This summer, unlike the previous ones, yes they kept their best players: the central Matthijs de Ligt, captain with just 19 years old; the steering wheel Frenkie de Jong, who rang in the radar of Barcelona; and Hakim Ziyech, whose remarkable World also caught the attention of scouts.Less than 23 years
The confirmation of these young people coincides with the stagnation of Kasper Dolberg, an elegant striker on which they had placed great hopes in the recent times. Your muscle injury at the start of the season made things easier to Dusan Tadic, with four years of experience in the Premiership (Southampton). In this way, the Danish hardly played home, two of the six days of the Champions league.
In any case, the packaging in which this Ajax has been faced with the appointments of maximum demand, astonishes for a template with less than 23 years old on average. In addition to Tadic, only two veteran Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (35 years) and the dane Lasse Schöne (32) may raise the competitive level in those trances where not reached with the simple talent.
