Ajax preview: Just hoping for the season to finally end

The Dutch powerhouse are currently sixth in the standings in the Eredivisie and they are unlikely to climb up much more than that, which means that we'll might see Ajax miss on European competitions next season. Overall, this has been one of the worst seasons in the team's history, marked by many lows, including their 6-0 loss to Feyenoord in the last round.

When it comes to team news, Diant Ramaj, Olivier Aertssen, and Jordan Henderson are out with injuries, while Steven Berghuis and Gaston Avila are doubtful.

Player to watch: Brian Brobbey

Despite their woes this season, not everything is as bad as it seems at Ajax right now. One of the rare bright spots on the team is Brian Bobbey, a 22-year-old forward who has scored 16 goals in the league this season, along with seven assists.

Will Brobbey score first?

With eight of Brobbey's 16 goals in the league this season being the first goals of the respective matches, we can easily see Brobbey scoring the first goal of the game against Twente.
