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.

"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".
