Europe (uefa) - Group Stage 2023/2024
Both team score
Ajax is still winless in the Europa League, two points that the team is in the last place in Group B. AEK Athens has four points, Brighton has seven and leaders Marseille have eight points. This means only possible way to progress is to win twice. The group phase started with two draws. In the first leg against Marseille, the neutral fan was very well served in the 3-3 draw against Marseille, than 0-2 and a 2-3 losses by the Dutch. A little later, the match against AEK Athens also ended with one point, the result was 1-1 and here too, the nerves didn't hold up and the lead was lost towards the end of the second half. Against Brighton, however, Ajax ultimately had nothing to celebrate. It was twice 0-2 the team now has eight goals conceded overall. At least the fans in the league recently breathed a cautious sigh of relief. There were five defeats in a row, which also resulted in a change of coach. Now it suddenly seems as if the team has caught itself again. 4-1 against Heerenveen, 2-2 against Almere and 5-0 against Vitesse show us that offensively things can continue like this. The French lead the group and don't have a lot of pressure. But not everything is perfect. In Ligue 1 the team mange to record onlt one win in it's last nine games and now the title fight is between other teams. A measly goal has been scored in the last four games, perhaps the players need the international competition to get back into good shape and gain new self-confidence before the domestic matches.
