Player Report: A 10 and a 9.5 after memorable evening for Ajax

Ajax played hard on Wednesday against Sporting Portugal in the first group match in the Champions League. The Portuguese champion was parched 1-5 in-house. VoetbalPrimeur is making a report after a special Amsterdam evening.
Remko Pasveer โ€” 5: Maarten Stekelenburg‘s replacement had a simple start, but then went badly wrong. It didn’t do his self-confidence well. He was insecure, even though it was a bit better supported by the wide gap after half time.
Noussair Mazraoui โ€” 8: Mazraoui immediately showed his intentions. The man in shape was involved in the opening strike with a strong front action. He rewarded his strong performance with an assist at the 1-5, and along with Antony on the right, a constant scourge for opponents.
Jurriรซn Timber โ€” 7.5: Timber immediately showed not being afraid of the highest stage. After strong interventions, he dribbled in a few times. A great duel of the Orange International, which, despite its young age, preserves peace in all situations.
Lisandro Martรญnez โ€” 6,5: Martรญnez is not to be seen, but in the Portuguese hit, he might have been able to intervene a little more adequately. Shortly before rest and at the disapproved goal after the break, he also showed himself in the air.
Daley Blind โ€” 7: A decent pot of Blind, which was not embarrassed. He was quiet at the ball and that was shining off on the team. With the also relatively static Tadic for him, it was sometimes lacking left dynamics.
Edson รlvarez โ€” 7.5: Ajax‘s midfield was the boss of Sporting and that was partly because of the Mexican, who was always very much on it. As a result, the home team did not get to play football.
Ryan Gravenberch โ€” 7.5: He initially struggled to pull the game towards him, but the 1-3 assist was nice. Gravenberch became increasingly dominant in midfield after ward.
Antony โ€” 9.5: What an accomplishment of Antony. He played his opponent tureluurs and was involved in four out of five hits. One assist was even more beautiful than the other. A world performance by the Brazilian ball artist.
Steven Berghuis โ€” 7.5: He was searching for his role as number ten, until he suddenly showed up in the sixteen after 38 minutes. After a good assumption, he finished. A welcome uplift for Berghuis, who now needs to be found more often by his fellow players.
Dusan Tadic โ€” 6: Tadic was little happy in his actions in Lisbon. He suffered more frequent ball loss than we are used to from the Serbian captain and, above all, had a hit with referee Josรฉ Sรกnchez, whom we will save an assessment.
Sรฉbastien Haller โ€” 10: The criticism of his game was not tender, but Haller dealt with it on Wednesday. The Ivorian striker found the net twice in eight minutes and in the second half he found the net twice. Incredible.

Devyne Rensch โ€” x: Played too short for a review.

Perr Schuurs โ€” x: Played too short for a review.
TrainerErik ten Hag โ€” 8: Not many fans will have put Haller in their favourite lineup beforehand. Didn’
t Ten Hag have to choose the Tadic in striker variant? The trainer also made his equal in Lisbon.
