Ten Hag also takes into account some of the scenarios that may occur during the course of the competition. "I do not think that Ziyech and Blind can complete ninety minutes, we will have to keep our finger on the pulse. These are two possible changes. That is why I also want to keep Schuurs in mind. He was also out for a while, but can play as soon as they have to, "says the coach, who confidently shows himself about keeper Bruno Varela. "I have talked to him and he is ready. He knows what he is here for. Nothing has changed for the defense, the steadfastness is the same. We train that all year round."

Ten Hag: 'Must be male and smart'
Ajax coach Erik ten Hag has devised a clear battle plan for his players against Getafe. "They put a lot of pressure, so behind the last line they are vulnerable. With Babel, Traoré, Van de Beek and also Dest we have people who can utilize that space. The ball pace will have to be high, otherwise you will not be released. We must be masculine in the duels, but also smart. Above all, we must not lose our head, "the coach explains his tactics.

Bruno Varela says it's all right. The replacement for André Onana did not experience the best run-up to this game, but enjoys the confidence of Erik ten Hag and his teammates.

Club Brugge-Manchester United · one hour 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 be taking the European tournament seriously, as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes the strongest eleven, although reserve keeper Sergio Romero is on goal. 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 · one hour 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.

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.

"But I have said a hundred times that Ajax is my club and there was no reason to leave for Barcelona, ​​because I have everything I want here. And I am under contract until 2026."
