Eight goals, two red cards, two penalties and a three-goal comeback made an exciting game between Chelsea and Ajax on Tuesday night in the Champions league.

The match took place at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge and was expected to be an exciting game but fans got more than they must have bargained for.

The first half was eventful enough after Quincy Promes’ free-kick was inadvertently diverted into his own goal by Tammy Abraham within just 4 minutes whilst Jorginho equalized from the penalty spot just 67 seconds later after Christian Pulisic was clumsily taken down in the penalty area.
 
Before Chelsea knew it, Ajax was suddenly 3-1 up. Hakim Ziyech, was instrumental to both the second and third goals.
The first came as Promes headed home from Ziyech’s sublime cross and the second was a freak goal. Ziyech whipped free-kick smashed off the far post and hit keeper Arrizabalaga straight in the face before going over the Chelsea goal line.
 
 Donny van de Beek put Ajax 4-1 up 15 minutes into the second half.
 
Just after , Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta snuck in at the far post to get the faintest of touches onto Tammy Abraham’s wayward shot and spark hope of a revival.
 
Referee Gianluca Rocchi then took centre stage awarding Chelsea a penalty as well as sending off 2 Ajax players, Chelsea scored the penalty and then as Ajax tried to hold on Chelsea scored again just after as as Reece James reacted first after Kurt Zouma’s header came off the crossbar, drilling a low shot into the far corner.
