Napoli v Ajax: Bassey gets an assist on UCL night in Naples


Calvin Bassey picked up an assist in the UEFA Champions League match between Ajax and Napoli on Wednesday at Estádio Diego Armando Maradona.

Making his fourth UCL appearance with Ajax, Bassey was deployed as a Left wingback.

Ajax went into the break trailing 2-0, but the Dutch champions were a different side from the jump after the restart.

They controlled the pace of the game and forced Napoli back as they advanced their build up play.

In that moment the Nigerian found space all alone upfield and whipped a precise cross into the box, that was connected by Davy Klassen (49′) to halve the deficit.

The assist was Bassey’s first goal contribution in the Champions League this season.

However, the 22 year-old was booked in the 66th minute for roughing up Mathias Olivera in a 1v1 challenge, playing as Right back, with his side trailing 3-1.
