Lyon chase Ajax sensation Dolberg as Lacazette replacement

Posted May 14, 2017

Ajax head coach Peter Bosz has called on his youthful Ajax side to make history after they progressed to the Europa League final with a thrilling 5-4 aggregate victory over Lyon.

Bosz, "We were 3-0 down at Schalke and not all games are the same".

"We have done that and the final result is handsome". The three-goal lead will be hard to overcome, but not impossible for Lyon.

"I try to show to my players that such scenarios must not make any difference. We do not need to be ashamed after how we played, but we are disappointed and frustrated". At home, Lyon is significantly good, but we have to consider the fact that 2 of the recent 4 games has been lost and one more is like if Lyon's win they are winning by the huge margin of 3 or more goals.

The Dutch club will contest a European club competition decider for the first time in 21 years with a team assembled for an estimated 22 million euros ($24 million) - a sum dwarfed by the world record 105 million euros United paid for the French worldwide midfielder.

Except in the last ten minutes, when they were down to ten men and Lyon needed only one goal for the extra time, Ajax had no more reason left to act out their passive role.

"A great team. Now we'll have to see if we can really write history".

Kasper Dolberg opened the scoring for Ajax in the semi-final second leg but Alexandre Lacazette's double just before halftime put Lyon ahead on the night and substitute Rachid Ghezzal added another goal for the hosts late on. "We were so close to the final, it's hard to take", Lacazette said.

"Over the two legs, we deserve to go through", Bosz told RTL.

"It could have been different if I had been fit to start the first leg".
