Selection: game at AEK too soon for Ziyech

Selection: game at AEK too soon for Ziyech

Erik ten Hag has selected 20 players for the UEFA Champions League game against AEK.  Hakim Ziyech (injury) and Nico Tagliafico (suspension) will have to sit out the game in Athens.

There had been a sliver of hope that Ziyech would have recovered on time for the game, but that’s not the case.  Donny van de Beek, who was substituted on Saturday against NAC, is in the selection.

A win qualifies for the next round

AEK – Ajax is the 5th group match for Ajax in the Champions League.  The duel begins at 18:55.  If Ajax wins, they will be assured of a spot in the next round.
