Steven Bergwijn has to miss the last group stage match in the UEFA Europa League against AEK Athens. That news was announced by coach John van ‘t Schip during the press conference on Wednesday. "The chances of Bergwijn playing are small; we assume he won’t make it."

Luckily, there was also some positive news: Brian Brobbey can play again. "Or something extraordinary has to happen", Van 't Schip said. "He trained yesterday and will do so again today. We will see if he can play ninety minutes. But the way it looks right now, playing won’t be a problem."

UEFA Conference League
Ajax have to win against AEK on Thursday to continue their European adventure. If they win, the Ajacieden will continue in the UEFA Conference League after the winter break. "We don’t have to depend on others or look at other matches. Only one thing can help us, and that is to win."

Devyne Rensch was also present during the press conference. The defender was asked whether or not Ajax were eager to relaunch in the Conference League. "We are very eager. We have to win, and we know that. It’s the most important thing, and hopefully, we can achieve it with good football."

Those words resonated with Van 't Schip. "First, it’s about winning. Besides that, as a team, we must continue what we started. Some parts of a match go well, others don’t. The first half against Sparta was good, but we dropped a level in the second half. We are trying to find a constant factor in that."
