Coach Peter Bosz has included twenty Ajacieds in the selection for the cup match against Willem II. Frenkie de Jong and Abdelhak Nouri (both 19 years old) are both making their appearance in an official match selection for the first time. 17 year-old Matthijs de Ligt has been in the selection before, but, just like De Jong and Nouri, is still waiting for his official debut.
Compared with the last duel, the following players are absent: Joël Veltman, Bertrand Traoré, Davy Klaassen, Nemanja Gudelj and Mitchell Dijks. These five are getting a break. In addition to the three young players De Jong, Nouri and De Ligt, Vaclav Cerny and Donny van de Beek complete the selection.
