  • nice prediction! and thanks for the analysis. keep up the good work!! greetings piet from holland

  • sorry about line up man utd, i found this on their site: Man United: De Gea; Jones, Ferdinand, Evans, Fabio; Nani, Carrick, Cleverley, Young; Rooney, Hernandez. Subs: Amos, Smalling, Pogba, Scholes, Valencia, Welbeck

  • line up according dutch newspaper: Ajax: Vermeer, Anita, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Koppers, De Jong, Aissati, Eriksen, Özbiliz, Bulykin and Sulejmani. Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Evans, Ferdinand, Fábio, Cleverley, Scholes, Carrick, Young, Welbeck and Rooney.

  • even with Rio in the starting line-up that backline doesnt look bulletproof soes it?

  • ajax are doing terribly in the eredivise and will hope to give their fans something to shout about. they know a draw is no good going to old trafford so expect goals. 2-1 man utd to win though

  • anyone no why evra, berba and giggsy are out?

  • never underestimate ajax. theyve got some great attacking players and the home advantage. 2-1 as man utd can look shakey in europe. not a bad result for either team

  • enoh is a big blow for the dutch side

  • Ajax don't tend to fare well against the Englih teams. A solid 2-0 win would pretty much see Man Utd through.

  • its odd to think that one of the favourites will be knocked out this round

  • sulejmani is a big goal threat for ajax. fabio faces a big test tonight

  • No Evra is a big loss for M.Utd. Fabio and Rafael are still very young. Valencia could even start at right back

  • Manchester will be happy with Ajaxs form lately!!

  • Valencia will be on the right, Park in the middle with Carrick

  • Hernandez to start

  • Man Utd have to do well tonight, they cant be knocked out of the champions league and Europa League

  • Also, surely Ferdinand will start over Evans or Smalling seeing as he's captain tonight..?

  • It'd be good to see the youngsters Cleverly, Jones, Smalling all get a start tonight, but I think experience will reign.

  • I know I sounded a bit wierd...

  • piet2012: Here it is. If it doesn't appear in blue just copy and paste it. (I hope you knew that!) it's english. ajax. nl.

  • footballgod, im sure about the selection of squads, it's published on man utd website and on ajax website. (ajax website also has an english version, just google it )

  • piet u sure about the squads?

  • 18 man squad of Ajax: Vermeer, Cillessen, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Anita, Sulejmani, Eriksen, de Jong, Boilesen, Blind, Lodeiro, Bulykin, Ozbiliz, Aissati, Serero, van Rhijn, Koppers, Lukoki. 20 man squad of Man Utd: De Gea, Amos; Fabio, Rafael, Evans, Jones, Smalling, Fryers, Ferdinand; Valencia, Nani, Carrick, Young, Park, Scholes, Cleverley, Pogba; Rooney, Hernandez, Welbeck.

  • Boilesen is Ajax' left back, Anita will probably play at RB or central defending midfielder. Boerrigter and Janssen are out with an injury, they will definitely not play because the're not in the 20-mans squad. Evra, Berbatov and Giggs didn't travel to Amsterdam.

  • Thanks piet

  • Enoh is injured Bulykin not in line-up Boilesen probably in line-up
