    Ajax up 3-0 vs. Emmen in the 60th minute. Alvarez on the bench, and Ajax have already used four subs.

    Alvarez will not see much playing time unless there’s a couple of injuries or garbage time.

    Ajax currently playing well and winning games.

    From the announced lineup, Alvarez is gettng the start in the MF against Liverpool this afternoon. Ajax are not using Labyad as a #10 so the MF is Klaassen, Alvarez and Gravenberch. I hope he has a good game!!!!

    I see a pattern here. Ajax only plays Alvarez when they are clearly outmatched.

    Agreed.

    The Ajax midfield operates differently when he's in there and that kind of versatility is needed if they want to truly compete at the European level.

    I don't think so. ETH wanted him on so that he could drop back and let Blind move forward to help set up passing to the MF. Unfortunately, Liverpool did a very good job of clogging the MF, neutralizing the other Ajax MRs. I thought Alavarez was decent enough on the night but suspect he will be transferred away at the end of the year. He is just not a good fit for this team but has good qualities. We'll see what happens.

    Playing well against Teams like Liverpool in the Champions League means more to scouts than playing well against some lower level team in the Eredivise so hopefully they liked his performance.

    Gravenberch is insanely good

    Europa League or CL is both good for Alvarez. He's lucky to play in this Ajax, it's a really good team.

    If he can’t beat out Guido then he belongs in the mmls.
