Thanks to a mainly healthy group of players, there’s just the lone fitness problem for the Ajax manager Erik ten Hag to contend with. Daley Blind (Syndesmotic ligament tear) won’t be playing here. Nicolás Tagliafico will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We feel that in this game, Feyenoord are capable enough to get a goal against this Ajax side, but one goal might not be as many as they will have scored against them.
Our selection here is for both teams to score in a 1-2 victory for Ajax by the conclusion of the game. Expecting it to be very competitive.
