Hakim Ziyech 'just' has a base place at Ajax, even though he was injured against VVV-Venlo last weekend. "It wasn't as long as he was doubtful if he could play," said Ten Hag.

Maduro: "APOEL should not be a problem for Ajax"
Hedwiges Maduro expects that Ajax will qualify for the group phase of the Champions League at the expense of APOEL. Although the former pro and current analyst of FOX Sports does think that generally the football in Cyprus is too negative. "In Cyprus, good clubs just play, you shouldn't underestimate them. I recently heard Johan Derksen call that they all have the level of RKC, but that is not the case. They have been taking points against teams like Dortmund and Everton for years," said Maduro. , who played at Ajax from 2004 to 2007 and ended his career in 2018 with Omonia Nicosia, in conversation with NUsport.

"APOEL has always been able to get major players from, for example, the Premier League and La Liga, but they were all at the end of their career," Maduro continues. "For them, Cyprus and especially APOEL is attractive to cut down because of the salary and the weather. There were always many Brazilians walking around and they now have Lorenzo Ebecilio and Boy Waterman." He does, however, expect his old team to be put to the test in the previous round. "PAOK has better players. They both have roughly the same playing style. APOEL will also hope to lose Ajax and then gamble on the counter. But they are less than PAOK in that." (2/2)
