Edson Alvarez, Steven Berghuis, Mohammed Kudus, and Steven Bergwijn all scored goals for the Eredivisie side in their opening game of the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League campaign.

The Nigerian international displayed his prowess throughout the contest with a commendable effort and ended it off with an assist for the four-time European champion.

With the Alfred Schreuder team already 3-0 up in the first half, the game was already beyond reach for Calvin Bassey’s former team.

Just 16 minutes into the game, Ajax found themselves in front, thank to a stunning header from Alvarez, who was unmarked during a corner kick. Before Berghuis and Kudus scored twice in less than two minutes to extend the lead further for the Alfred Schreuder team, with Bassey providing the assist for the third.

The visitors, however, felt they had a consolation goal when Barisic scored a fantastic goal for Rangers, but VAR disallowed it because of an offside in the setup.

Bergwijn then capitalized on an errant backpass late in the game to score into an empty net and seal the victory for the hosts.

God is great. Special night for me yesterday. Good to get the win and was nice to see so many familiar faces.” – Bassey wrote on his twitter page.

Ajax now leads Group A after that victory, with Liverpool suffering a shocking 4-1 defeat against Napoli. After playing Heerenveen in the league, they will play the Reds in the tournament.

Rangers has already suffered back-to-back losses, and will be wishing they still have Calvin Bassey in their team when they play Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership at the weekend in an effort to turn things around.
