Getafe-Ajax · 20 minutes ago

The players bus of Getafe is enthusiastically received by the fans, although the police on horseback is not far away.

Club Brugge-Manchester United · 22 minutes ago

No Vormer in base at Club Brugge
Without Ruud Vormer in the starting line-up, Club Brugge will face favorite Manchester United tonight in the first knockout round of the Europa League. The 31-year-old midfielder starts on the bench with the Belgian formation. Manchester United seems to take the European tournament seriously, because manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is taking the strongest eleven. And therefore also without Dutchman Tahith Chong.

Club Brugge set-up: Mignolet; Mata, Kossounou, Mechele, Deli, De Cuyper; Zipper, Vanaken, Balanta; Bonaventure, Tau.

Setup Manchester United: Romero; Dalot, Lindelöf, Maguire, Shaw; Williams, Matic, Mata; Pereira, Lingard, Martial.

Getafe-Ajax · 31 minutes ago

The basic formation of Getafe is also known. The collective of coach José Bordalás plays without real star players, or it must be attacker Jaime Mata. The Spaniards have to rely mainly on their mentality and hard play, so Ajax has been warned. It is striking that the experienced top scorer Ángel Rodríguez starts on the bench. Getafe therefore has a secret weapon.

Getafe setup: Soria; Suarez, Djené, Etxeita, Olivera; Nyom, Maksimovic, Arambarri, Cucurella; Mata, Deyverson.

Getafe-Ajax · 40 minutes ago

Ziyech and Blind back in base
Hakim Ziyech and Daley Blind are fit enough to return to the base at Ajax. They both played half against RKC, with Blind coming in halfway for Ziyech. Furthermore, as expected, Bruno Varela is the replacement of the suspended André Onana and Edson Álvarez is in the center of the back, next to Blind because Perr Schuurs is not fit enough.

Ajax setup : Varela; Dest, Alvarez, Blind, Tagliafico; Van de Beek, Ziyech, Martínez; Tadic, Traoré, Babel.
