Borussia Dortmund are THUMPED by Ajax as the Dutch giants hit four past the Bundesliga side with Daley Blind and former West Ham star Sebastian Haller on target in romp

  • Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund were thrashed 4-0 by Ajax on Tuesday night 
  • Marco Reus netted an own goal with Daley Blind and Sebastian Haller on target 
  • A team including Erling Haaland and Jude Bellingham could not prevent defeat


Ajax produced a dominant showing to rout Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on Tuesday and keep up their 100% record in the Champions League as they moved closer to a place in the next stage of the competition.

An early own goal by Marco Reus from Dusan Tadicâs free kick was followed by decisive strikes from Daley Blind, Brazilian winger Antony and Sebastien Haller. Ajax lead Group C three points ahead of their previously unbeaten German visitors.

The Dutch club took 11 minutes to go ahead in a sell-out clash at the Johan Cruyff Arena that was expected to be evenly contested but proved anything but.

Tadic’s curling free kick looked goal-bound but was helped into the net by a touch off the top of the head of Dortmund skipper Reus, who was credited with the own goal.

Blind’s left-footed half-volley from the edge of the area doubled the score in the 25th minute but Ajax might have led by more at the break had it not been for Gregor Kobel in the Dortmund goal, who pulled off several difficult saves.

Antony, fresh from making his Brazil debut last week, curled a left-footed shot into the net after 57 minutes as Ajax pressed home their superiority.

They were also helped by some poor Dortmund defending, especially when Haller rose easily to head home Blindâs cross for the fourth goal in the 72nd minute.

The two sides clash again in Dortmund in their next group game on November 3.
