Ajax recovered from the midweek European loss against Napoli. The Ajax players won Saturday's away match at FC Volendam 2-4. The Amsterdam goals came from Dusan Tadic, Calvin Bassey and Brian Brobbey.
Winning in Volendam was a must for Ajax, who have already failed to win four matches across all competitions. The big defeat (1-6) against Napoli was especially painful, so the Ajax players were keen to get back on track in Volendam.
This succeeded in part. At half-time, Ajax led by 0-2, a favourable margin that was maintained after half-time.
Ajax can now turn their attention to Wednesday, when the fourth UEFA Champions League group game is scheduled. In Italy, Napoli is the opponent once again. Ajax will need to win to keep any chance of continuing their presence on the highest European stage - Ajax.nl
