Ajax vs Brighton Match Preview and Team News
Ajax is the only club in this Europa League group that has yet won. They are bottom of the group but just two points behind AEK Athens and Brighton and three behind leaders Marseille. Ajax had a bad start to the season and started the battle for the title in the Dutch Eradivisie. But the change of manager sparked a revival in the team even though they won their last two games. A 2-0 home win over Volendam was followed by a 4-1 win over Heerenveen (also at home) to take them up to 11th in the table. Their Europa League campaign started with a draw against Marseille but they led that game on three occasions. Carlos Forbs is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. Brian Brobbey plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Amourricho van Axel Dongen (unknown injury), Jay Gorter (Knock), Sivert Mannsverk (Foot injury) and Gerónimo Rulli (Shoulder injury) are not available for Ajax coach John van ‘t Schip.
The Seagulls had an up-and-down first European campaign. They came from 2-0 down to draw level with AEK Athens at home, but eventually lost 3-2. On the road to Marseille, they lost again 2:0, but they recovered and returned to the south coast of England with a score of 2:2. A home win over Ajax would give the Seagulls a chance to qualify for the knockout stages. Beating Ajax will likely mean that their worst option will be third and entry into the Europa Conference League. Pascal Gross plays well in the middle of the park and does not allow the opponent much action. Kaoru Mitoma is an excellent player, he causes a lot of problems for his opponents, and the biggest virtue of this guy is his speed. Many teams are interested in this guy. From a largely full-strength group of players, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi to be concerned with. Julio Enciso (Meniscus tear) won’t be in action.
