Manchester City's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stage suffered another crushing blow with a deserved loss to Ajax in Amsterdam 3 - 1

City fell at the first hurdle last season - their Champions League debut - and look set to suffer the same fate this time round.
City's Abu Dhabi owners are unlikely to look happily on such a return for their lavish investment, and the team's shortcomings have rarely been exposed as cruelly as they were in Amsterdam ArenA.

Ajax started the match in a manner evoking memories of their glorious past, when a side featuring Johan Cruyff won three European Cups in the early 1970s

The cost of Ajax's starting XI v Man City was €4.4M (including seven De Toekomst graduates). That puts the win into some perspective.
If true, it makes an even bigger mockery of City's spending

Ajax had to sell their best players at the end of the season and told to use the youngsters from their academy as there was no money to buy players.
