Ajax withstands Lyon comeback to reach Europa League final

Mourinho Loses to Wenger for the First Time; Social Media Users Voice Conspiracy Theory

The Dutch outlet yesterday spoke to Ajax's star striker Kasper Dolberg, who has caught the attention of many of Europe's finest, having scored an impressive 22 goals in 46 appearances this season.

"Lyon started to believe in it, the crowd were behind them and then you know it is hard."At half-time I said "Do not panic".

Ajax substitute Donny van de Beek hit the woodwork in a frantic conclusion to the second-half - Ghezzal's header then deflecting in off the unfortunate Nick Viergever, who will miss the final after picking up a second yellow card late on.

The French side have a 4-1 deficit to overturn from the first leg in Amsterdam, and Lacazette returns from injury to lead the line.

Francisco and Jacinta are the youngest saints who are not martyrs to ever be canonized as saints by the Catholic Church. Church groups, families and individuals have, for days, made their way to Fatima, about 150 kilometres north of Lisbon.

Nevertheless, if they face Manchester United in the same manner, they will only make it easier for Mourinho to clinch the Champions League ticket because this type of petrified reaction from the opponent is what the Special One wants.

Manchester United and Ajax advanced to the Europa League final on Thursday, bringing together two of the continent's grandest soccer clubs looking to regain their former lustre.

Ajax's young side were clearly rattled and at the start of the second half displayed none of the composure they had in the first. "It is a victory for football".

"A final play is nice, but finals you play to win", he added. At home, the "Lion" defeated AZ - 7: 1, defeated "Besiktas" - 2: 1 and beat "Roma" - 4: 2.

Chelsea not that far ahead, says Liverpool boss Klopp
Now we have to win ours and it will be fine. "We play in this semi-final to come into the final". That means we can bring in other players and it is a good situation.

Unlike Turkish side Beşiktaş, Ajax saw the defensive deficiencies of Lyon, which are mainly created by their offensive frenzy.

I'm very disappointed and frustrated.

"Now we'll see if we can really make history. We weren't clinical enough in front of goal and not effective enough defensively", Lacazette said.

Peter Bosz's men are comfortably placed, both on the basis of the first-leg result and the comparably non-existent injury headaches ahead of the tie. We gave everything, as did the fans. We were anxious Ajax would pull away after the first leg but instead they got their hardest game in this season's competition.
