Manchester City’s Champions League campaign is in tatters after they were beaten 3-1 by Ajax in Amsterdam tonight.
The reigning Premier League champions opened the scoring against the run of play in the 22nd minute when Samir Nasri received a pass from James Milner to slot home clinically over Ajax keeper Kenneth Vermeer.
The home side then produced more efficiency in attack when Niklas Moisander glanced a header from a corner past Joe Hart before Christian Eriksen wrapped up the contest with just over 20 minutes with a deflected shot off Gael Clichy.
Ajax thoroughly deserved the victory which sees them climb off the bottom of the Group D table, sending City to the bottom on just one point as Borussia Dortmund leapt to the top as they got the better of Real Madrid 2-1 in Germany.
