New generations of passengers are increasingly connected to their mobile devices, so the use of new technologies means keeping up with them. Runners are a particularly interesting niche.

A Getafe for history

first_imgThe game caught temperature every minute that passed and, little by little, Ajax was cornering Getafe. His thrust was not sometimes reflected. Actually, since 1-1, Ajax did not test Soria again. Getafe shook those minutes of fear and threw palante. In the same minute (36 ’) but in two different plays, Getafe could score 1-2 but found the wood. First in a header from Mata who hit the crossbar and then in a shot from Deyversosn who repelled the post right of the goal of Onana. Ajax, scared like a child. The Getafe grown in enemy camp, because at rest he had finished more times than the locals, seven times by five.He continued to risk Ten Hag putting more pepper on the grass with the entrance of Promes after the break Huntelaar later. Precisely, the exsevillista was about to score in a header in the 58 ’. Notice. There was half an hour left and the Getafe endured, but a few minutes later the nerves would return when marking Eiting for lack with the collaboration of Olivera. 25 minutes ahead with the goal of not fitting two goals, as 3-3 gave the eliminator to the Blues for the double value of the goals in the opposite field.Onana, goalkeeper who left Barça in youth, is not the most orthodox, but one of the most fortunate, a condition that is always positive for a goal. In 72 ’when Maksimovic’s shot was over, the post spat the ball walking from side to side. Third blue finish that repelled the wood.Ajax ruled on the scoreboard, but it was Getafe ruled on the grass. From 2-1, the Dutch did not knock on the door again. Yes it was Mata who, without a goalkeeper, failed to overtake Blind. It would have been the lace. Getafe lived the best night of his life. Pure rock and roll in Amsterdam with a goal at the start of the game and happiness at the end, because he eliminated Ajax, a four-time European Cup champion. The outcome had a dose of anguish at the end, because 2-1 compromised the azulones, but the soldiers of Bordalás knew how to defend the 2-0 of the Coliseum. A club and a humble team, Getafe, leaving out of Europe an almighty, four-time European Cup champion which represents one of the best soccer schools in history. Bordalás repeated the team that won in the Coliseum. Why play what worked well. Ten Hag arranged a bold alignment that clearly indicated his offensive intentions. Discharge due to Ziyech’s injury, your most unbalanced and talented player, He fixed it by locating Danilo, a 20-year-old Brazilian forward who plays in the subsidiary and had debuted in the first team last Sunday jumping into the field in the 72nd minute. Before his people, Ajax had to give up his bad game in the Coliseum, where in addition to losing 2-0 he did not throw once at the door. Ajax was in a hurry and chose the shortest path to reach the goal of Soria. A long ball from Onana was followed by another by Blind. Ajax playing patadón? Yes, Ajax playing patadón. Or long balls, if you want to be finer. It was clear to Ajax that the ball should not circulate through the center of the field, where Arambarri and Maksimovic steal everything that rolls.In minute 5, a throw-in by Cucurella towards Deyverson and extended by the Brazilian ended up in Mata’s goal. The Madrid striker was ahead of Lisandro Martínez, shorter and less stout and who defended the play badly. Mata ate the toast and ended up marking cross-shot.

Nevertheless, put faith in the effort and tied five minutes later, marking Danilo after play by Van de Beek. With only 18 minutes of experience in the League and at its premiere in the Europa League, Danilo scored his first goal with Ajax.
