Schöne back in selection

Schöne back in selection

It was clear after Ajax – Excelsior (3-1) that coach Marcel Keizer would need to piece together a puzzle in order to come up with a line up for the game against AZ.  Joël Veltman has been suspended and Max Wöber sustained an injury on Thursday evening.  Lasse Schöne – after sitting out a one-game suspension – is back in the selection.  On Saturday, Keizer announced the team for the game against AZ.

The absence of both Veltman and Wöber decreases the number of available defenders.  Nick Viergever (ankle injury) and Daley Sinkgraven (knee injury) are also unable to play.  Ajax also has to do without Amin Younes (knee injury), Vaclav Cerny (knee injury) and Benjamin van Leer (knee injury).

Just like last Thursday, Noussair Mazraoui is in the selection.

The 19-player selection is:

Andre Onana
Kostas Lamprou
Matthijs de Ligt
Luis Orejuela
Mitchell Dijks
Damil Dankerlui
Deyovaisio Zeefuik
Donny van de Beek
Hakim Ziyech
Carel Eiting
Lasse Schöne
Frenkie de Jong
Siem de Jong
Noussair Mazraoui
David Neres
Klaas Jan Huntelaar
Kasper Dolberg
Justin Kluivert
Dennis Johnsen

AZ - Ajax begint zondagmiddag om 14:30 uur
