Ajax's line-up for the away match against PAOK Saloniki has changed in one place compared to Sunday's Vitesse match. Noussair Mazraoui is kicking off in Greece on Tuesday.
The choice of coach Erik ten Hag means that summer-time gain Razvan Marin has a spare role in the first game in the third Champions League preliminary round. Mazraoui usually played as right back last season.
Ten Hag also maintains the same formation as Vitesse, which means that the vanguard is again formed by Hakim Ziyech, Kasper Dolberg and Dusan Tadic. David Neres and Quincy Promes are sitting on the couch again.
PAOK-Ajax starts at 7 p.m. The Slovenian Slavko Vincic is the referee in the Toumbastadion. The return at the Johan Cruijff ArenA is in a week, when the kick-off is at 8.30 p.m.
If Ajax qualifies for the play-offs, then APOEL Nicosia or Qarabag is the opponent in the battle for a place in the main tournament of the Champions League.

Ajax setup: Onana; Veltman, Schuurs, Martínez, Tagliafico; Mazraoui, Van de Beek, Blind; Ziyech, Dolberg, Tadic.
