Match Preview

Milan challenge for De Boer Frank de Boer will face an immediate challenge in his first game in charge of Ajax when the Dutch travel to the San Siro to face AC Milan. The former Holland defender was appointed on Tuesday as caretaker manager until the winter break after Ajax confirmed coach Martin Jol had left the club by mutual consent. Jol, who only took charge of Ajax in May last year, claimed the expectations at the Amsterdam ArenA were too high. "I am saddened by Jol's departure," said Ajax general manager Rik van den Boog. "Things aren't going as well as they have previously. "And the question is, can the tide be turned? "That's a hard question to answer. I think that Martin has been struggling with the situation. His job comes with enormous external pressure, and this pressure has been increasing. "Frank is a great coach, and he's available immediately. "He will travel to Milan with Ajax and we are hoping to make it through the European winter break." De Boer has been in charge of the club's senior youth team since July 2008 and is also assistant coach to Bert van Marwijk with the Dutch national team. Ajax travel to Italy needing to hold on to third place to at least claim the consolation of a Europa League berth. Last month's 4-0 defeat against Real Madrid meant Ajax could not catch second-placed AC Milan in the standings, with the Spaniards and the Italians having secured safe passage to the next round. Ajax lie third in Group G heading into the final group game, a point ahead of Auxerre, and need to only better or match the French side's result at group leaders Real Madrid. AC Milan, meanwhile, secured qualification to the knockout round with a 2-0 win at Auxerre last time out. Massimiliano Allegri's men are in buoyant mood after a solid display saw them beat Brescia 3-0 at the weekend. The result lifted Milan three points clear of Lazio at the top of Serie A. The Rossoneri will look to extend their eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions. Former Ajax star Zlatan Ibrahimovic will lead AC Milan's attack alongside Robinho.

Match Report

Quickfire Ajax stun Milan Ajax made light of the departure of Martin Jol, scoring twice in nine second-half minutes to claim a 2-0 win at AC Milan and bow out of the Champions League Group G on a high. The Eredivisie side will now head into the last 32 of the Europa League having claimed a considerable scalp courtesy of goals from Demy de Zeeuw and Toby Alderweireld. Milan were already assured of second place in the group but had goalkeeper Marco Amelia to thank for keeping the total down in this match. Ajax, under the stewardship of interim boss Frank de Boer after Jol left on Monday, almost got off to the perfect start, Luis Suarez finding room to shoot after just 90 seconds and drawing a smart save from Amelia in the Milan goal. Amelia had plenty more to do in the opening 10 minutes, first plucking a dangerous Gregory van der Wiel cross out of the air and then parrying Miralem Sulejmani's goalbound 20-yarder. Milan continued to invite the visitors to attack, though both Christian Eriksen and Van der Wiel failed to hit the target with ambitious attempts. The Italians introduced Kevin Prince-Boateng after just 26 minutes following an injury to Mathieu Flamini but that did not turn the tide. Instead, Eriksen produced Ajax's best attempt yet, curling the ball right-footed towards the top corner only to be denied once more by the diving Amelia. There were just 10 minutes remaining in the first half when Milan finally rallied, Ronaldinho heading straight at goal from 12 yards and then seeing a drilled attempt charged down by Jan Vertonghen. Ajax had one more shot before the interval, but Amelia was not deceived by Suarez's 30-yard drive. Amelia somehow denied Suarez again three minutes into the second period, blocking the Uruguayan's close-range effort from a corner. Andrea Pirlo, previously anonymous, started to come to life, first taking a first shot on goal and then crossing for Thiago Silva who shot wide. Sulejmani and Suarez tested the excellent Amelia again before De Zeeuw finally put Ajax in front in the 57th minute. He followed up Siem De Jong's blocked shot from the edge of the area and finally found Amelia unable to prevent the goal. After 65 minutes it was two, Alderweireld sweeping home Suarez's pass from the left as Milan's defence faltered. Substitute Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a difference for the home side, bringing two fine reaction saves from Maarten Stekelenburg in the space of five minutes. Both goalkeepers continued to excel as the match drew to a close, while Ibrahimovic somehow lifted his shot over the crossbar from six yards in the final minute.
