At Stadion An der Alten Forsterei, Union Berlin and Ajax square off in what is anticipated to be a competitive Europa League matchup. The Bundesliga team put on a strong performance in Amsterdam as they sought their third straight clean sheet across all competitions. Andras Schafer continues to be sidelined due to injury, while Haberer and Trimmel have both served their domestic bans.
At the weekend, the Amsterdammers defeated Sparta Rotterdam 4-0, with skipper Dusan Tadic turning in one of his greatest games of the year. The Eredivisie champions, though, will face a far larger opponent in the matchup on Thursday.
Union Berlin are currently on a 21-match streak at the top of the Europa League where no more than three goals have been scored in any encounter since being defeated at home. This also applied to 18 of the last 20 games in which Ajax played at this level, therefore a similar performance is expected.
Let’s check the latest picks, Europa League news, stats and Europa League expert picks for Ajax vs Union. We’ve plenty of Europa League predictions for you to consider.
Although a draw should be taken into consideration, we might see an interesting match between these two clubs because Union Berlin is difficult to defeat at home. Even though Youri Baas and Ahmetcan Kaplan are both huge doubts for the visiting team, interim manager John Heitinga can still bank on several key players for the matchup.
Traveling for the Europa League has been exceedingly difficult for Ajax in the past, as they have missed the net five times. Union Berlin, on the other hand, has recently had seven victories in ten home matches in the first level, and their overall record of seven points from four games suggests a turnaround in their play.
Ajax, however, has undoubtedly been providing the entertainment lately, with goals at both ends of the field in eight of their previous nine Europa League games. Much of the same is anticipated when the two teams square off given that this has also been the case in four of the last six Union Berlin home games at this elite level of the Europa League.
