Ajax coach Erik ten Hag has worked on his line-up for the home game with FC Emmen. The team from Amsterdam starts with David Neres and Razvan Marin on Saturday, which means that Kasper Dolberg and Perr Schuurs have lost their basic place.
Dolberg was on Tuesday against PAOK Saloniki in the third heat of the Champions League (2-2), and Schuurs was the center of the defense with Lisandro Martínez.
Ten Hag's choices mean that Neres is in the front with Hakim Ziyech and that Dusan Tadic is moving from the left winger position to the forward. The captain also often played at that spot last season.
The Ajax defense against Emmen probably consists of Noussair Mazraoui, Joël Veltman, Martínez and Nicolás Tagliafico from right to left and the midfield is formed by Marin, Donny van de Beek and Daley Blind.
Ajax-FC Emmen starts on Saturday at 19.45 in the Johan Cruijff ArenA. The Ten Hag team will then work towards the return against Tuesday's PAOK, also in Amsterdam.
Ajax setup: Onana; Mazraoui, Veltman, Martinez, Tagliafico; Marin, Van de Beek, Blind; Ziyech, Tadic, Neres.
