Viergever think that Ajax unconsciously gas terugnam with an eye on Europa League
Nick Viergever feel Sunday after the 2-0 victory at Sparta Rotterdam, that there is still more excitement to the races, but does not speak of titelstress in Amsterdam.
“I think the titelstress until a later stage”, says the 27-year-old defender in interview with NUsport. “We play at this moment convincing, so that is where we focus now. The pressure is on this time not so high that that I think, “if we don’t win, then it is all over’.”
Leader Feyenoord after 22 rounds of five points on Ajax, but according to Viergever, there is no question of a mental battle between the two rivals. “You know that Feyenoord battle for the championship the last few years, not often experienced, so it would be able to play. But if we ourselves champion want to be, then we must first of all win.”
Ajax won the Sunday easy of Sparta by goals of Bertrand Traoré and Kasper Dolberg. After the 2-0 took the Locals some gas back, possibly with an eye on the Europa League showdown Thursday against Legia Warsaw.
“Maybe played that unconscious mind indeed. We have a lot of opportunities to Sparta was still more pain to do, but that we have failed. You had this competition just four or five times to score. Was for yourself a lot easier. The opportunities we have certainly had, but to score a goal.”

Thursday, Ajax is playing in Warsaw in the sixteenth finals of the Europa League against the team where the two-year back also already played. “The advantage is that we have the stadium already, but the previous time there were no supporters in, so it will be a different experience. Anyway, I’m happy to be back matches to play in Europe.”
“The next few days we will go into the team. I know at least that there is quite cold,” says Viergever.
In the coming days rises the mercury in Warsaw during the day but just above freezing, while nighttime temperatures of approximately -11 predicted.
Legia cashed earlier this season hefty defeats in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund (0-6 and 8-4) and against Real Madrid (5-1). In house played the Poland or 3-3 are equal against Real.
“And they have done well against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League,” says Viergever. “It is certainly not easy, but it is especially to ourselves how the games will proceed smoothly.”
Viergever hopes that Warsaw is not the terminus for Ajax in Europe. “Of course we want to be as far as possible. These are all beautiful experiences and the games are fun to play. The home game against Legia is even almost uiverkocht. We, as a group, have declared that we are far will come.”
