Disappointment for AJAX fans!
Darwin Núñez, Benfica, knocked the Amsterdam football team AJAX out of the Champions League with a late header. Benfica, the Portuguese team qualified for the next stage with a 3-2 on aggregate of round 16. The Dutch team dominated the first half nad continued playing well in the second as well but a mistake from the goalkeeper, Onana helped Darwin to score the only goal of the game.
“We were the better team” - AJAX Captain Dušan Tadić said after the game. “They did pretty much nothing except from one freekick. We dominated the play but then just one moment..unbelievable” he continued.
AJAX have not won a homegame in teh Champions Legaue knockout stages since mid 90-s. Possibly some comfort for the team is that they are still in the lead of Eredivisie, two points ahead of PSV Eindhoven nad will face off against Feyenoord on Sunday the 20th and will also play in the final of KNVB Cup, facing PSV Eindhoven on the 17th of April
