Predicted Ajax XI vs Napoli

Ajax head to Napoli in need of a win after being humiliated 6-1 by the Italian side on home turf last week.

A poor run of form has left Alfred Schreuder very much under pressure, and his future at the club could be very much in doubt if he can’t get a strong result in Naples.

He won’t be able to pick his first-choice starting XI for the match, with captain Dusan Tadic suspended and right-back Devyne Rensch injured.

Davy Klaassen, who has been unhappy about the lack of playing time he has been getting this season, looks set to replace the Serbian, playing in midfield with Steven Bergwijn moving back out wide.

At the back meanwhile, Jorge Sanchez is likely to come in for Rensch with Daley Blind and Calvin Bassey swapping places as they did at the weekend, with the former at centre-back and the latter at left-back.

Here’s how the Eredivisie champions will most likely line up:

Pasveer; Sanchez, Timber, Blind, Bassey; Alvarez; Taylor; Berghuis, Klaassen, Bergwijn; Kudus.
