Ajax-trainer Bosz called Olympique Lyon ‘very strong opponent

Ajax coach Peter Bosz thinks that his team with Olympique Lyon as the opponent has not taken in the draw for the semi-finals of the Europa League.

“This is a very strong opponent,” said Bosz Friday at his weekly press conference. “But that makes sense. We’re talking about a semi-final showdown.”

It is for Lyon, the second European confrontation with a Dutch club this season, after the French in the sixteenth-finals in two duels, no chip really had left of AZ (11-2).

“But many teams have two faces”, said Bosz. “We played at home against Schalke in the world and yesterday, not more than sometimes good.”

Ajax trains, the day after historic night

Ajax trained on Friday after the memorable night in Gelsenkirchen.

Nick Viergever fulfilled in the duel a leading role by the major 3-1.

Despite a 3-2 defeat against Schalke 04 was a placement for the semi-finals of the Europa League enforced.

Ajax takes on Sunday in Eindhoven against PSV.

“But Lyon is now fourth in a very strong league. AS Monaco in the semi-finals of the Champions League and Paris Saint-Germain had normally FC Barcelona disabled. That says quite a lot.”

Ajax took his place Thursday at the expense of Schalke 04 in the last four. The Amsterdammers lost in Gelsenkirchen, although after extra time with 3-2, but that was after the 2-0 victory last week in their own home more than enough to repent.

Long celebration is not there for the team of Bosz. Sunday wait again the topper in the Philips Stadion against PSV. The current number two of the Premier league should also be then in each case without Daley Sinkgraven. The full is still a lot of trouble with a knee injury.

Leaf expects the other players to be nice from the slijtageslag with Schalke 04. “All we can Saturday really the balance sheet format”, is what he said.

“Two days rest is not enough to recover from a match of ninety minutes. So definitely not a competition of 120 minutes. But it is a given that the match against PSV is not moving. We have a lot of mental energy involved. It was a different story as we were disabled.”

PSV-Ajax starts on Sunday at 16.45 hours and is led by referee Kevin Blom. Ajax have three speelrondes of the bow for the one point deficit to make up on leader Feyenoord, Sunday at 14.30 pm visit Vitesse.
