Eredivisie side Ajax will be at home at the Johan Cruyff Arena when they welcome Ligue 1 side Marseille for a Group B Europa League matchday one clash on Thursday at 19:00 GMT.
Ajax will go into the match against Marseille in the middle of a three-match winless run and a poor start to their Eredivisie campaign. In the opening four rounds of fixtures, Ajax have won just once, drawn twice, and lost once.
Ajax currently stand 12th on the Eredivisie table with 5 points. They have scored only 7 goals and conceded seven times in the process. They hope their form will improve in time before entertaining Marseille on Thursday.
Marseille warmed up for the trip to Ajax with a 0-0 draw at home to Toulouse. The draw followed another draw away to Nantes right before the international break. Nantes came from behind to claim a point even though they played with ten men from the 9th minute when they had Ndemeni Bastien Meupiyou Mendajou sent off.
Marseille will hope that their unbeaten start to Ligue 1 can translate to a winning start against Ajax on Thursday.
Neither camp has reported fresh injury woes ahead of their clash on Thursday.
Marseille will claim an away win and add misery to Ajax’s poor start to the season.
