Frank de Boer has announced his selection for the championship match against Heracles Almelo. Joël Veltman returns to the match selection, following his suspension for the cup final. The away match in Almelo, in which Ajax can secure its 33rd championship, comes too soon for Niklas Moisander. The Finn has a knee injury.
On Sunday,as of 14:30, Ajax only needs a tie in order to win the championship. If close competitor Feyenoord doesn’t defeat SC Cambuur at home that same afternoon, Ajax will become champions even if they lose at Polman Stadium.
In addition to Moisander, injured Ajax players Siem de Jong and Viktor Fischer will most likely be present at the title match. Ajax completed its preparation with one last practice on Saturday afternoon. On the eve of the away match, the selection for this away match has already gone to a hotel near Almelo.
The match selection for the away game at Heracles Almelo:
Ricardo van Rhijn
Mike van der Hoorn
Lesly de Sa
