On this Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League Group H match between Chelsea and Ajax at the Stamford Bridge, we witnessed one of the craziest matches ever. The Dutch side played incredibly well, and opened a 4-1 lead, but had two players sent off in controversial calls from the referee, as the Blues capitalized on that and went on to reach the equalizer.

The result leaves both teams and Valencia, who beat Group H bottom Lille 4-1, tied with seven points in the lead of the group. Everything looks really disputed in Group H.

Honestly, over both confront between Ajax and Chelsea in this UCL campaign so far, the Dutch side had been incredibly superior. However, they cannot kill the game, as Frank Lampard’s side proved to be a very efficient side when it comes to enjoying the opportunities.

The match began at an absolute frenetic pace in London. On 2 mins, Ajax opened the scoring as Tammy Abraham deflected off Quincy Promes’ cross into his own nets, opening the scoring for the visitors. 0-1 Ajax.

However, Chelsea equalized less than three minutes after. American striker Christian Pulisic was brought down inside the Ajax area. Penalty to Chelsea, which Jorginho easily converted past Andre Onana. 1-1.

But Ajax, who had won their last five away games in the Champions League, have pressed back in attack. The team was rewarded on 20 minutes when Moroccan striker Hakim Ziyech made a perfect cross and Promes made it two. 1-2.

A new free-kick resulted in Ajax’s third goal. And what a goal it was from Ziyech! The Moroccan took the free-kick near the corner flag, as the ball tricked Kepa Arrizabalaga, hit the post, and bounced back straight into the Spaniard’s face and into the net. 1-3 Ajax.

After half-time, Chelsea came back in better form and seemed to be gaining momentum when, at the minute 55th, Ajax strikers set-up a great counter from their own half, as Ziyech fed Donny van de Beek, who made it 4-1 Ajax.

Chelsea pulled a goal back through Cesar Azpilicueta in the minute 63rd as there was still hope for Chelsea.

The Blues’ comeback was only possible due to Daley Blind and Joel Veltman’s second yellows as the latter committed a tough foul inside the area, giving Chelsea yet another pen, which was once again converted by Jorginho, on 71 mins.

Only three minutes later, reserve defender Reece James beat the already weakened Ajax defender to equalize. 4-4.

There was enough time for Chelsea to reach a comeback, and Azpilicueta even scored Chelsea’s 5th, but it was ruled out in the VAR. In the end, Ajax lost two silly points, as Erik Ten Hag has some work to do to extract the best out of their talented side in this UCL. However, both sides might guarantee their places into the Round of 16.
