Kasper Dolberg is back in Ajax’s selection for the home game against Schalke 04. The Danish centre forward sustained a groin injury four weeks ago against FC Copenhagen (2-0), but has now made a full recovery. Coach Peter Bosz announced earlier on Wednesday that he would only select players who are one hundred per cent fit.
Bosz had a complete selection at his disposal and was thus forced to make some choices. Only eighteen players may be selected for a European game. Lasse Schöne is suspended for this game, which is why he is not among the names in the selection.
The selection consists of these 18 players:
Matthijs de Ligt
Frenkie de Jong
Donny van de Beek
Ajax - Schalke 04 kicks off on Thursday evening at 21:05 in the Amsterdam ArenA. The return takes place one week later in Gelsenkirchen.
