The combination of results that has to be given so that the Ajax did not pass as first group is Really hard. With the goal win over Dortmund, only Sporting de Portugal could snatch the place from them in the event that Ajax lose this afternoon, beat the Germans tonight and, on the last day, come back from 1-5 in the first leg.
Therefore, the concern of Erik ten hag for this duel it will be to maintain the incredible streak of the club so that the spirit does not drop (follow the game live on AS.com). In this edition of the Champions League they have won every game, conceding only two goals and, instead, scoring fourteen. In addition, he already made it clear at the press conference that he is not going to speculater. “We are going to go with everything. We want to win, we have to win. The last time I gave the opportunity to other players we did not comply, that hurt me more than anything“Something to keep in mind will also be the situation with the credit cards. Timber, who is warned of sanction and could force a yellow to serve the punishment on the last day and pass clean to the round of 16.
For this party Edson Álvarez will not be there, that he saw the third yellow on the last day. The question in the eleven is who will replace the Mexican accompanying Gravenberch on the double pivot. The option that seems most logical is Klaassen’s, although he could also advance Blind to the center of the field to enter Tagliaphic, relegated to the background this season, on the left side. Another possible solution to take into account with the already certified classification is that of the Young Kenneth Taylor’s debut in the Champions League.
This afternoon, the Ajax will premiere in the Champions League (he has already dressed her in the Eredivisie) the third kit This season’s eye-catching Bob Marley T-shirt. It will do it without the symbol of the three birds (in reference to the song Three little birds, an unofficial anthem for the club) because UEFA does not allow it justifying it with A rule that only allows club or sponsor logos to be displayed.
Although the Besiktas yet is not mathematically eliminated (a victory today could allow him to arrive with options to the last match against Dortmund if the latter lose in Lisbon) his coach Yalcin is realistic. “These last two days are for the honor of the club and the UEFA points for our country. The higher the goals are set, the greater the disappointments. We got into a big mess because of the injuries, “he explained in the previous match.
Because of these repeated injuries will not have available today Batshuayi From the beginning. He has recovered from a hamstring injury, but was ill this weekend and his coach warned that he might be able to play the last half hour, but you will not take any risk to make sure to have it next Saturday for the Giresunspor visit.
