A team with as much history as Ajax seems to be back, the creators of perfect football are returning to their best level they had not seen since 1995 when they won the Champions for the last time.
The Dutch team won their first match against AEK 3 goals by 0 but the game lent itself to a much bigger win, is that the team that saw Johan Cruyff grow is showing a game that seemed forgotten. The Dutch team is no longer easy prey, with the signings of two veterans like Blind and Tadic and the retention of De Ligt, Ziyech, Tagliafico or Neres, among others, has caused that, apart from the usual dose of football, there is maturity to do not fall and maintain a good level of football for 90 minutes.
The AJAX visited the Allianz Arena, where a few years ago they would have been thrashed. A new story would begin in Germany where the Dutch deserved more, with their personality and good football, they started down on the scoreboard with a goal from Hummels, the German central scored from the head of a Robben center. However, in the rerun, it seems that the central Bavarian is out of play. As there is no VAR in the best club competition in the world, this injustice can never be restored. It did not matter to the AJAX that felt comfortable and could play its football and 15 minutes after Bayern’s goal it would find the equalizer after a great play by Tadic that would leave hand to hand to Mazraoui, who does not forgive and puts the final 1 to 1.
It was not a bad game of Bayern but the baton was carried by Ajax, both teams had chances but none could define and leave the group E with AJAX tied for first place with Bayern Munich both with 4 points followed by Benfica with 3 and AEK with 0 points.
