Erik ten Hag has selected 20 Ajacieds for the game against VVV Venlo. Nico Tagliafico and Siem de Jong will be absent against the Venlo team due to their suspensions. Azor Matusiwa and Jurgen Ekkelenkamp make their debut in the selection.
Ekkelenkamp was in Ten Hag’s selection during the winter break, preparing for the second half of the season at training camp in Portugal. Matusiwa, just like Ekkelenkamp, occasionally trains with the A selection.
The 20 Ajacieds in the selection are:
Matthijs de Ligt
Donny van de Beek
Klaas Jan Huntelaar
Dani de Wit
Ajax – VVV Venlo kicks off on Thursday at 20:45 in the Amsterdam ArenA.
