Klaassen looked back last week’s loss to AZ, where Ajax didn’t impose themselves well over ninety minutes, "We didn't invest from the start, only to be able to get something out of it later. And when we concede both goals, we don't do our job, that's something we have to keep working on."

Klassieker lives on
Ajax and Feyenoord are even on points in the league table, which promises for a Klassieker with a cutting edge, "The competition is always very lively, but it is really about something concrete now. I am really looking forward to it."

For Klaassen's teammate, Steven Berghuis it is the first time that he will play in the Klassieker as an Ajax player. "Of course you talk about it and make jokes about it," said Klaassen. “Without the fans, it is all a bit calmer. Now, he just plays against his old teammates, but it will still be special for him."

Klaassen does not necessarily see the fact that Feyenoord will be without their home support at the Kuip as a special advantage. "Every match without an audience is a big disadvantage, whether that is in De Kuip against Feyenoord or in the Johan Cruijff ArenA against Barendrecht."

The Dutchman is ready for the fight in Rotterdam. He realizes that it could be a tough match "I expect a real spectacle. Feyenoord is a much better team than last season. We will have to show that we are better."
