So Ajax won Besiktas 2-1 during their Champions League game on Wednesday night, and what a comeback it was for the Dutch team.Ajax

After a penalty was awarded to Besiktas for a handball in the area by Mazraoui, they headed into halftime trailing 1-0.

After Larin squandered a couple of good chances before half-time, Ghezzal made no mistake with the penalty kick, and the Turkish side should have been farther ahead at the break.

At the break, Ten Hag introduced Haller, who immediately turned the game around, netting his first goal after Tadic sent the ball across the area for him to finish into an empty net on 54 minutes.

On 69th minute, he completed the comeback by deflecting a Martinez attempt into the net.

The visitors keep their perfect record in the group, having already qualified for the knockout stages of this year’s tournament.

In their last group stage encounter, they will face Sporting.

The visitors’ narrow chances of qualifying for the Europa League have evaporated, and they will travel to Dortmund for their final encounter.
