Feyenoord started the classic match in Amsterdam sharply. After just five minutes of play, the first goal had already become a reality. Orkun Kukcu has possession of the ball in midfield, and Osama Idrissi plays on the left, which in turn reaches Kwelindci Hartmann. The left-back managed to reach Santiago Jimenez and the Mexican then scored 1-0.
Ajax wakes up and starts fighting. In the seventeenth minute, Edson Alvarez scored the equalizer from a corner kick, and twenty minutes later, captain Dusan Tadic put his team in front.
The second half was actually one copy and paste Since the start of the match. Just seven minutes after the start of the second half, Sebastian Szymanski equalized for the visitors after a low cross from Jahanbakhsh.
A goal keeper
Feyenoord then starts to press, but Ajax blocks it well and a period of attacks from both sides follows. Ajax had a great opportunity to score the winning goal six minutes before the end, but goalkeeper Timon Wellenreuther was able to block Mohammed Quddus’ attempt.
Two minutes later, Feyenoord got a free kick. David Hanko runs and heads Lutsharel Geertruide from close range. Feyenoord’s first win in the arena since 2005 is a fact.
With a six-point lead and a seemingly easier schedule for the rest of the season, Feyenoord are on course for the national title. The last time Feyenoord won the Eredivisie was in 2017.
