Ajax Struggled To Win At 10-man Dortmund And Climbed To Last 16

Ajax maintained their perfect record by coming from behind to defeat 10-man Borussia Dortmund and advance to the last 16 of the Champions League.

Ajax now leads Group C with 12 points, while Dortmund is second with six points, along with Sporting Lisbon.

For the hosts, Mats Hummels was sent off after a foul on Jude Bellingham resulted in a penalty for Marco Reus.

Ajax, on the other hand, scored late on through Dusan Tadic, Sebastien Haller, and Davy Klaassen.

Erik ten Hag’s side patiently probed for an equalizer, then for the goals that sealed their progression in the competition after the break, and it was no more than Ajax deserved.

Dortmund, on the other hand, will be disappointed that Hummels and Bellingham both missed excellent scoring chances with close-range headers and appeared to have cause to complain about the dismissal of their veteran defender after 29 minutes.

Replays revealed that Hummels’ sliding challenge made no contact with Antony and that Ajaxs Brazilian forward had actually landed on the German defender’s shin – but VAR upheld English referee Michael Oliver’s decision to show the red card.

Tadic’s prodded finish at the back post from Antony’s cross broke their resolve, and Haller nodded in to put Ajax ahead before Klaassen tapped in with the game’s final kick.
