The Dutch giant Ajax peeled off from the bottom, which strangely or not it had occupied in the table of the local Eredivisie.
The weakest start to a season for the most successful Dutch team is a fact, and for the first time in their successful history, they occupied the last place in the standings, regardless of what stage of the season.
This year, after the first eight games, Ajax were shockingly in last position, but that changed late last night in a direct battle for survival against Volendam.
Ajax won this battle with 2:0, and this was the first victory for the team from Razgrad.
More than two months ago – on August 24, Ajax arrived in our country to face Ludogorets in the playoff round of the Europa League, and after a show by the already sold Mohamed Kudus, the Amsterdammers won 4:1.
After that match came the defeat by Ludogorets with 0:1 in Razgrad, and then a streak of nine more matches without success.
The total number of games without a win was 10, and Ajax lost their last four games in a row.
However, fans were given a moment of relief last night when Steven Berwine opened the scoring in the 57th minute, and after much trepidation, Chuba Akpom doubled in the last minute to seal the win over Volendam.
With him, Ajax not only got off the bottom, but even got out of the relegation zone and is now in 15th place in the Eredivisie with only 8 points from 9 games.
