Team News, Preview, and Ajax vs Emmen Lineups

There is little chance that Ajax will defend its Eredivisie title with Feyenoord running the floor with an eight-point advantage, however, there is a huge task for the Amsterdam team to secure Champions League football next season, and any other outcome would be a disaster for the biggest team in Dutch football. They are equal on points with PSV with six rounds of matches before the end of the season. Mohamed Kudus is injured and won't be able to play, the same goes for Devyne Rensch and Ahmetcan Kaplan.

Predicted lineup: Rulli, Baas, Alvarez, Timber, Sanchez, Taylor, Grillitsch, Klaassen, Bergwijn, Tadic, Brobbey.

Emmen

For the time being, Emmen has escaped the scrutiny of the relegation zone. They have accumulated enough points not to be relegated straight forward, but they can still fall to the 16th spot which would force them to play a relegation playoff match against a selected team from the second division. Several players are potentially unavailable for the guest side: Ben Scolte, Mark Diemers, Rui Mendes, Metehan Guclu, Jeff Hardeveld, Maikel Kieftenbeld, and Mart Lieder all face a race against time to be fit for the important match.

Predicted lineup: van der Hart, Burnet, Veldmate, Araujo, te Wierik, Antonisse, El Messaoudi, Veendorp, Bouchouari, Zivkovic, Romeny.

He hasn't been the first choice in the center-forward position for the Amsterdam team starting fewer than half the games this season which makes his stats even more impressive.
