It was difficult for Chelsea to deal with Ajax’s midfielder Hakim Ziyech, who perfectly launched his cross inside the box that was headed by Quincy Promes to make the scoreline 2-1. Shortly after, it was a free-kick from the Moroccan that was struck so perfectly that it escaped Kepa Arrizabalaga and cannoned off the post and then went in off the goalkeeper’s face. Ziyech would have never expected the ball to take such a trajectory, but more importantly, it went in giving Ajax a 2 goal lead before the half time.
