Erik ten Hag has announced his match selection for the game at Sparta. Both Andre Onana and Siem de Jong have a spot in the 19-player selection. Noussair Mazraoui has not sufficiently recovered from his thigh injury and has therefore not been included in the group.
Ten Hag had already said on Friday that Mazraoui was a question mark for the Sparta game. There were also doubts around Siem de Jong – who has been suffering from a foot injury – and keeper Onana (sore Achilles tendon). De Jong and Onana were estimated to be fit enough after the final training.
Just like for the home game against Heerenveen, Noa Lang is part of the group. Youngsters Dani de Wit and Mitchel Bakker have also been selected.
Sparta - Ajax kicks off on Sunday at 14:30 in Rotterdam.
The 19 Ajax players in the selection are:
Matthijs de Ligt
Donny van de Beek
Siem de Jong
Klaas Jan Huntelaar
Dani de Wit
