Ajax vs Tottenham: Notes about Ajax from the 1st leg

Its a joy to watch Ajax side. Patience in the build up phase. Moving around the ball to find the right space. De Jong drops to the line of 3. Always looking for the space between lines.

Quality and courage in playing on that space. They looked to overload one area, and gain superiority on that side to rotate next. Looks like they are doing rondos in certain areas of the pitch.

Note to the off ball movements (dummy movements).

Ajax goal. Despite starting in a throw in, the looked to overload that area. They look to unbalance the OPP attracting them to that side to create space.

Other thing, is their reaction to the ball loss. They try to use the 5 seconds rule to gain again the ball possession, and then hit the counter or organize again.
