AZ Alkmaar
Ajax
  • Sem Westerveld is ruled out through injury. He is joined by Ibrahim Sadiq, Lewis Schouten and Hobie Verhulst on the sidelines.
  • Ajax will miss Tristan Gooijer, Mika Godts, Steven Bergwijn, Gaston Avila, and Amourricho van Axel Dongen as they are injured.

Prediction

  • Ajax meanwhile played out a 2-2 draw against NEC at Johan Cruijff Arena in their last Eredivisie match to extend their winless streak to three games (two draws and one loss)
  • AZ has got the better of Ajax lately, unbeaten in their last five Eredivisie matches (three wins and two draws). Ajax is looking for its first league win over AZ since April 2021.
  • Vangelis Pavlidis has been AZ's main attacking threat. He is the club's leading scorer with 21 goals, with no other player managing more in the Eredivisie, seven of those having been the tone-setting first of the match.
  • Brian Brobbey has stepped up for Ajax this season. He's netted on 14 occasions, including seven match-opening goals.
