Andre Onana and Siem de Jong fit for duel against Sparta

Erik ten Hag has announced his match selection for the game at Sparta.  Both Andre Onana and Siem de Jong have a spot in the 19-player selection.  Noussair Mazraoui has not sufficiently recovered from his thigh injury and has therefore not been included in the group.

Ten Hag had already said on Friday that Mazraoui was a question mark for the Sparta game.  There were also doubts around Siem de Jong – who has been suffering from a foot injury – and keeper Onana (sore Achilles tendon).  De Jong and Onana were estimated to be fit enough after the final training.

Just like for the home game against Heerenveen, Noa Lang is part of the group.  Youngsters Dani de Wit and Mitchel Bakker have also been selected.

Sparta - Ajax kicks off on Sunday at 14:30 in Rotterdam.

The 19 Ajax players in the selection are:

Andre Onana 
Kostas Lamprou
Joël Veltman
Matthijs de Ligt
Max Wöber 
Nico Tagliafico
Rasmus Kristensen
Mitchel Bakker
Donny van de Beek
Hakim Ziyech
Carel Eiting
Lasse Schöne
Siem de Jong
David Neres
Klaas Jan Huntelaar
Mateo Cassierra
Justin Kluivert
Dani de Wit
Noa Lang
