Ajax holds its own in Manchester

In a thrilling show at Manchester City, Ajax leaves Etihad Stadium with one point. After seventeen minutes, Frank de Boer’s team had taken a surprising 0-2 lead, thanks to two goals by Siem de Jong. After Yaya Touré’s goal, and certainly after Sergio Kun Aguero’s, the Amsterdam team struggled. But with a hefty dose of willpower, Ajax managed to limit the damage to 2-2. Ajax thus holds on to third place in pool D of the UEFA Champions League.
