Commenting upon Ajax striking on Borussia Dortmund in CL Matchday 3 home game, by a 4-0 final outcome, 31-year old Dutch backliner allrounder Daley Blind, even named UEFA Man of the Match, stated:

"It was fantastic. We can be proud of such turnout, and enjoy it for a while. This was fantastic, and it calls for a very big compliment to the group and to the fans. They really gave us a boost. Nine points from three games are a very good start.

They play in a way that is quite difficult to fight. We had a hard time with that, but at one point we recognized that as a team. Then we kept the ball in the team longer, and they had a hard time getting under the pressure. Ajax losing 1-4 to Borussia Dortmund, back in 2012 (Blind was part of that team indeed)? Times have really changed in that respect. We have shown that we can now measure ourselves with the top".
