UEFA Europa League - Johan Cruijff ArenA

6th Round

Ajax will play host to AEK Athens in the final round of Europa League group-stage games this Thursday, 14 December, knowing that only a win will keep their European adventure alive this season.

Still, the Dutch giants will have to do something they've not done before this season and win in the Europa League.

Ajax vs AEK Athens Prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Brian Brobbey to score anytime

  • He scored twice in his last Europa League fixture.
  • Brobbey has scored five in his last seven games across all competitions.

There has been fierce competition for the starting striker spot at Ajax this season given their early season woes, but Brobbey appears to have won the race. That's seen him start to bang in the goals when needed and after a brace against Marseille, he will be confident of leading the Dutch giants to third spot.

Player to Watch – Steven Bergwijn

Ajax's captain has been the man taking a lot of the blame and criticism this season with him being the captain but when needed, the Dutchman has stepped up and dragged his team to important results.

Bergwijn has two goals and an assist in his last three league games, and with the Dutch giants knowing they must win or be dumped out of Europe so will want to put the result beyond doubt.
