Team News, Preview, and Utrecht vs Ajax Lineups

Utrecht

The home side's miserable start to the season is shocking to their fans who couldn't forsee the team having only a single win in eight matches and scoring four goals which is the lowest mark in the league. Hidde ter Avest is injured while Nick Viergever is out through suspension.

Probable lineup: Barkas, Flamingo, Sagnan, El Karouani, van der Maarel, Labyad, Bozdogan, Fraulo, Lidberg, Boussaid, Romeny.

Ajax

The former champions are in the midst of one of the worst crises that ever hit the biggest club in Dutch football. After seven matches played, Ajax is in the relegation zone and this term they lost at home to rival teams like Feyenoord and AZ Alkmaar. The guest club also has some availability issues: Geronimo Rulli, Ahmetcan Kaplan, Steven Berghuis, and Benjamin Tahirovic are injured. Silvano Vos will miss the game with a suspension.

Probable lineup: Gorter, Avila, Medic, Rensch, Hato, Taylor, Bergwijn, van den Boomen, Brobbey, van Axel Dongen, Forbs.

Player to Watch: Brian Brobbey

Ajax sold some important players over the summer earning a lot of money. They reinvested a part of it in new players to fill those positions. However, there is hardly anyone from that list who justified their arrival in big-money transfers. Brian Brobbey leads the team in scoring with two goals which seems a bit thin for a club of this stature.

The 21-year-old started each of the six games he was involved in and has been a part of the team that suffered through some tough losses this season. This is Brobbey's second season at the club after arriving last summer from RB Leipzig.
