Ajax let a 2-0 lead slip in their 2-2 draw against Atalanta Bergamo in the Champions League. Michael Bell provides player ratings for the Ajax stars.

Andre Onana 6.5/10: Could do nothing about the two goals he conceded and made some good saves throughout the game.

Noussair Mazraoui 5.5/10: Struggled on the right at times in the first-half and was hampered by a yellow card, which meant he was substituted early in the second half. Fired a few shots off target early on.

Nicolas Tagliafico 6.5/10: Solid enough defensively but did not offer much going forward at all during the game. Ajax caught out at the back a few times in the second half on Tagliafico’s side.

Perr Schuurs 7/10: Turned by Zapata in the first-half but grew in confidence. Was solid in the second half and went on two mazy runs forward. Almost made it 3-0 after a great run into the box.

Daley Blind 6.5/10: Struggled with the pace of Zapata at times and was shrugged off. Did well with the ball at his feet though and got Ajax moving forward.

Davy Klaassen 6.5/10: Broke up Atalanta attacks and drove Ajax forward. Was mainly used in a defensive role during this game and had very little influence going forward.

Ryan Gravenberch 7/10: Did well physically against the Atalanta midfield and moved Ajax forward with his dribbling ability. Does not look out of place in the Champions League as an 18-year-old.

David Neres 6/10: Provided the cross for Traore’s goal and worked hard in the attack. However, lost the ball often and faded in the second half.

Dusan Tadic 5.5/10: Scored the penalty for Ajax, but was otherwise invisible throughout the game. Worked hard but in the second half struggled badly to get involved.

Antony 7.5/10: Constantly ran at the Atalanta defence and was a threat throughout the game. Came close to scoring when the score was at 2-2. Ajax will be worried after he left the game on a stretcher.

Lassina Traore 7.5/10: Won the penalty for Ajax and scored the second goal. A performance that proves he can handle the pressure of playing up front for Ajax. In the second half, though, he tired and his touch became very heavy.


Sean Klaiber 5.5/10: Came on for Mazraoui and did okay defensively but provided very little going forward.

Quincy Promes 4.5/10: You could barely tell he was even on the pitch after replacing Neres. Did not get involved at all.

Zakaria Labyad N/A: Not on long enough to get a rating
