Ajax vs Borussia Dortmund Preview:
On November 21st Ajax welcomes Borussia Dortmund at the Amsterdam Arena in Amsterdam. The Bundesliga champions need just one point get qualification ticket. Frank de Boer’s team faces the only one unbeaten team in the group stage so far this season.
Ajax stands on the fourth position with twenty fourth points in the Eredevisie. They have won three and lost two of their last six home games. Dortmund stands in the fourth place in the Bundesliga with twenty two points. They have won two and drawn four of their last six away games.
Dortmund leads group D with eight points after two great games with Real Madrid. Ajax goes on the third position with four points. Both teams still have full motivation. Ajax needs a win and loss of Real Madrid without points, in order to feel that they have a chance before going to Madrid in the last round.
These teams met in Dortmund in September. A late goal by Lewandowski allowed Dortmund to take three points.
There are no serious injuries or suspensions for both teams, so managers can use their strong squads. Ryan Babel is out for Ajax. Ajax have a good mix of experience and youth. Their dynamic midfielder Eriksen and Goalie Vermeer are hot prospects.
Players like Reus, Gotze, Lewandowski and Błaszczykowski will create attack power up front for BvB. Ajax plays well in Amsterdam. They won Manchester City with the score 3-1, but they lost the match before 1-4 against Real Madrid.
The Eredivisie champions have a great unbeaten record against German teams at home. Jurgen Klopp’s team is undefeated in the group and will try to qualify with a win or a draw.
The hosts are worrying about the fitness of goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer, as he missed Saturday’s game due to illness. So his appearance is under doubt. Forward Ryan Babel still has problems with his right shoulder. Thulani Serero and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson are long-term injured.
Dortmund manager Klopp has a full squad to choose from. So the trip to the Netherlands will be with the same starting squad that was so impressive against Real Madrid. Jakub Błaszczykowski returned from an ankle injury.
