Ajax will travel to Limburg on Saturday afternoon with a 20-man selection for the Roda JC competition game (Sunday at 12:30). Carel Eiting, who scored twice on Friday evening with the Ajax Reserves, may potentially make his competition debut. The 18 year-old midfielder made his debut in Ajax 1 last October during the cup match against Kozakken Boys.
Matthijs de Ligt is absent from the selection due to a thigh injury. Bertrand Traoré is still active at the Africa Cup in Gabon with Burkina Faso’s national team. The loaned-out player from Chelsea will play one last game against Ghana on Saturday evening for in a match for third place. He will return to the Netherlands after that.
New acquisition David Neres has not yet joined the selection. The forward is currently playing with the Brazilian U20 team in the South American championship in Ecuador. Once that tournament ends, he will report to his new club for the first time.
The selection is made up for these 20 Ajacieds:
Frenkie de Jong
Donny van de Beek
