Last season, Dutch Eredivisie champions AFC Ajax nearly tasted UEFA Champions League glory, getting all the way to the last extra-time seconds of the semifinal second-leg before conceding the goal that eliminated them from the European tournament. But this season, Ajax sit on the verge of elimination before the group stage even begins, as USA Today reports. After a tense and frustrating goalless draw in the first leg in Cyprus, Ajax must win outright to get past 28-time Cypriot title-winners APOEL FC to qualify for the UCL group stage, in the match that will livestream from Amsterdam, Holland.

Under Head Coach Erik Ten Hag, Ajax played 18 European matches last season, losing only two, according to UEFA.com. They won 10 of those matches while drawing six. But Ten Hag will not even get a chance to compete beyond the playoffs this season without at least one goal to beat APOEL on Wednesday.
Ten Hag’s side is off to a slow start, to say the least, in 2019/2020 European play, however, winning only once in their three matches in the playoff round, so far, per Soccerway stats. But the 0-0 draw in the first leg against APOEL ended the Ajax streak of netting at least one goal in 14 straight European matches.
