Playing for current club Celta Vigo, Guidetti led the Spanish side’s front-line in Amsterdam could only watch as Ajax dominated the opening hour of the game and asserted a commanding three-goal lead.
However, Swedish international Guidetti initiated a fightback in the second-half, scoring 11 minutes remaining to make it 3-1 and he wasn’t messing about with his celebration.
Clearly mouthing the word ‘Feyenoord’, Guidetti appeared to making reference to Ajax’s bitter rivals, who he played for in the 2011/12 season, scoring 20 league goals in 23 league games:
