Ajax seeking to 'make history' against Man United

Ajax stepped into the first European Final in the 21 years that too with a tiny margin with a 4-1 win against the Amsterdam.

Following Ajax's progression, Jose Mourinho's side seen off Celta Vigo to ensure his side were in the final.

Captain Davy Klaassen said he is "enormously proud" of the team's performance. "I have no words for it".

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

"But for us (if we win) it's a trophy and the Champions League for next season".

Lyon are interested in signing Ajax's teenage star Kasper Dolberg to replace the club's highly-sought after striker Alexandre Lacazette. After Ajax player Donny van de Beek hit the crossbar, two substitutes managed to cut the deficit in aggregate to one goal for Lyon with nine minutes remaining, as Rachid Ghezzal headed Maciej Rybus' left-wing cross into the net.

The team which had dominated the previous 135 minutes were gone, and just like Beşiktaş's futile efforts to exclusively defend their goal in Parc Olympique Lyonnais, they wholeheartedly left the driving seat for Lyon and nearly presented with the tickets to the final. They had enough chances to force extra time and had only themselves to blame for not doing so.

According to the Newark Advocate , Southwest Licking Local School District students were on buses when the situation started. A crisis team was on the scene to help assist those officers, as well as the residents in the facility and other employees.

If Lyon have any chance of advancing it will likely be because Alexandre Lacazette has a big game.

Not as quick to come forward from right-back as we have become accustomed to seeing, Valencia was still solid in defence in what proved to be a backs-to-the-wall job for United. We lacked defensive solidity in the first leg and we knew it would be hard after that.

Ajax Amsterdam will field a side that cost just a fifth as much as Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba when the teams meet in the Europa League final on May 24. By halftime the home team was ahead 2-1.
