Nicolas Tagliafico, Lisandro Martinez win Eredivisie title with Ajax

Nicolas Tagliafico and Lisandro Martinez both won the Eredivisie with Ajax.

A big congratulations to both Argentine players as well as the club for winning the league in the Netherlands. For Tagliafico, that league title is his second since joining the club and fifth overall in the country, having also won two KNVB Cup titles and a Dutch Super Cup.

For Lisandro Martinez, it’s his first league title and third trophy in total, having also won the KNVB Cup and Dutch Super Cup this year.

Tagliafico took part in 25 league matches this season with Martinez playing in 23 matches. Martinez has started Ajax’s last 10 league matches and played 90 minutes in all of them. Tagliafico has started the last eight matches.

Both men have been included in Argentina’s preliminary list of 50 players for the Copa America. Nicolas Tagliafico will surely be included while Lisandro Martinez’s inclusion is not confirmed. It’s very possible that the 23 year old takes part in the Olympics for Argentina and misses out on the Copa America.

Congratulations once more to both men and Ajax for winning the league!

  1. Happy for Tagliafico and Licha. Acuña arguably is having a better season than Nico so far but if I am not mistaken Nico is a vice-captain or at least one of the captains in the NT. He is recognized for his leadership abilities and can make a difference in a tight game. Should that be a factor or should we look at Acuña’s better performances so far in determining who starts as a LB for us?

    Another factor is chemistry:

    Licha Martinez – Tagliafico
    Molina – De Paul
    Quarta – Pezzella would have been another one but it’s quickly fading away…
