It was Sébastien Haller who took the lead at Ajax. After 10 minutes he was already on the board twice. Both in the 3rd and in the 10th minute the goal thief was in the right place and he was presented with the ball on a tray.
After half an hour, the Portuguese were able to score a connecting goal via Paulinho, who aimed the ball – too game-like – through Pasveer’s legs.
But Sporting was not really recovered from the flying Ajax start. Before the break, Berghuis crowned the excellent first half of his team with a great action.
Once out of the dressing room, Ajax could again count on their Ivorian goal machine Haller. He scored twice more and finished his Champions League debut with 4 goals.
The 27-year-old attacker continues his strong competition start. In the Netherlands, his counter after 4 matches stands at 4 goals. On the highest stage, it only took him one match to collect a four-time winner.
Ajax thus comes together with Dortmund, who gave Besiktas a 2-1 loss score via Haaland and Bellingham, in the lead of Group C.
