In the final of the UEFA Europa League for the season 2016/2017, Ajax face Manchester United at Friends Arena, in Stockholm. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Ajax vs Manchester United.
Ajax play very good this season in all competitions. They finished at the second position in Dutch Eredivisie, so they will play in the qualification for Champions League next season. They could avoid qualification and qualify directly in Champions league, if they manage to beat Manchester United in the final of Europa League. Ajax have very young, but talented team and they will be fully motivated to make another good performance and win the trophy in this competition. It would be a big motivation for their players to continue working hard and make very good careers in European football. Dolberg and Klaassen are doing great job in the attack, so these two players could be very dangerous for Manchester United. Bad news for Dutch side are that their important defender Viergever is suspended for this game, while important midfielder Schone is doubtful. Ajax lost 3-1 against Lyon in the Semi-finals of this competitions, but they went through because they beat them 4-1 in the first leg. “I would send my players directly to the doctor if they weren’t nervous, especially because it’s their first final.” – said Peter Bosz, Ajax coach.
Manchester United didn’t manage to make impressive result in Premier League, finishing season at the 6th position. They have Europa League in their pocket, but they want more, they want to play in the Champions league next season, so Jose Mourinho‘s men will be fully motivated to win this trophy and qualify directly in UCL (The winner of Europa League will qualify directly in Champions League). Manchester United have rested many important players in the last Premier League against Crystal Palace, so they all will be fresh for the match against Ajax. Manchester United manager Mourinho knows how to play matches like these and without any doubt they are favorites to win the trophy in the Europa League final, but they will have to show it on the pitch in Stockholm. Bad news for them is that their important defender Bailly is suspended for this game, after he got the red card in the Semi-finals against Celta Vigo. However, team from England have very good and experienced players who can replace him.
Ajax miss suspended Viergever, while Sinkgraven is injured. On the other side, visitors will be without suspended Bailly, while Shaw, Ibrahimović, Rojo and Young are all injured.
