Team News: Ajax
Looking at personnel, there is just a single fitness concern for the Ajax manager Erik ten Hag to contend with from of an almost fully healthy set of players. Daley Blind (Syndesmotic ligament tear) won’t play.
Team News: FC Emmen
Emmen boss Dick Lukkien has to choose a team with limited availability. Nick Bakker (Hamstring Injury), Marko Kolar (Corona virus) and Luciano Carty (Shoulder Injury) will miss out on this game.
In this match, Ajax are likely to dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
Conversely, FC Emmen won’t find it easy to break down their defence but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
We reckon that it will be a controlled 3-1 win for Ajax at the end of the 90 minutes.
