Alfred Schreuder's team scored 15 points in the first five matches of the league. The team undoubtedly wants to continue this track record at the international level. After last season's successful group stage in the Champions League with eighteen from six, a new European campaign starts on Wednesday.
Rangers FC is the opponent in a sold out Johan Cruyff ArenA. The current number two team in Scotland reached the main tournament through the play-offs at the expense of PSV.
The Ajax players trained in perfect conditions on Tuesday. The temperature was pleasant and the pitch looked great. So all the ingredients were there for the perfect preparation for the first European match of this season.
Our photographer was there of course and shot some nice pictures.
