Preview: Ajax – Sturm Graz (Champions League preliminary round)

 

 width =

The first official match of Ajax in the new season is immediately an important one. In the second heat of the Champions League, the team from Amsterdam will be the number two in last season's Austrian Bundesliga. Ajax will receive Sturm Graz on Wednesday at 8:30 pm in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

New blood

Ajax starts the new season with a strong selection. Especially the arrival of experienced players such as Dusan Tadic and Daley Blind caused a stir. Tadic was taken over from Southampton for 11.4 million euros and Blind made the switch from Manchester United for 16 million. Both are less than 30 years old and in the prime of their career. Staying in England was one of the options, but both Serbian and Dutch international chose to switch to Amsterdam. There they can serve as examples for the young team and in addition to footballing qualities, they also bring leadership qualities.

Complete selection

Tadic is a dangerous attacker who played no fewer than 36 games in the English league last season and scored six times. Blind only got 7 league games in action in which he never once found the net. In addition to the Premier League acquisitions, Ajax also led in Zakaria Labyad. The attacking midfielder was taken over from FC Utrecht where he previously worked with current Ajax coach Erik ten Hag. In addition, the departure with the departure of Justin Kluivert has remained very limited so far. There is interest in Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech, but for the time being they remain on board. It seems that for the first time in years Ajax is ready for the start of a new season.

Bad experiences

It is time that Ajax once again qualified for the largest European cup tournament. In the 2014/2015 season, the 33-time national champion was last admired in the Champions League. It went wrong again and again against Rapid Wien, Rostov and last year against OGC Nice. Last year no European football was played in Amsterdam at all since the qualification for the Europa League also ended in a nightmare. So it's time for Erik ten Hag's men to deal with the qualification ghost. With young talents such as Matthijs de Ligt, Kasper Dolberg and Frenkie de Jong, this should succeed. Certainly if they are supplemented by the experience of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Lasse Schöne and the new Tadic and Blind purchases, the Sturm Graz hurdle should not be a problem.
