Rangers Team News
First season in the Champions League after 12 years did not go according to plan for Rangers. Five defeats in five played matches with a goal difference 1:19 is definitely a result below all expectations. Especially if it’s known that they played in the Europa League final last season.
All five Rangers losses were convincing. They haven’t had a chance to play at least a draw in any game so far and they will have to improve a lot in order to compete equally in the Champions League. Theoretically, they can finish in third place, but for that they need a miracle. That would be a win by five goals against Ajax. That scenario is almost unimaginable. However, there is no doubt that Rangers will try to achieve at least a positive result in order not to end the group stage without a single point.
Regardless of poor result in the Champions League so far, “Ibrox” will be filled to capacity. Rangers will do everything they can to make it up to the fans and give them at least one positive night in Europe this fall.
Ajax Team News
Although they will almost certainly continue their journey in the Europa League, absolutely no one in Ajax is satisfied with what was done in the Champions League. Last season, they finished group stage in first place with a maximum of 18 points and now they have collect only three points after five games.
Ajax played a fantastic first round against Rangers and then they had 1:1 in Liverpool until 89th minute. From the moment Joel Matip scored, everything fell apart in coming period for the Dutch champion. Napoli scored ten goals in two matches against them, plus they were beaten 3:0 by Liverpool in Amsterdam. As already stated, in order to keep third place, they must not be defeated in Glasgow by five or more goals.
There is a possibility that head coach Alfred Schreuder will rest some starters. Ajax have a close battle with PSV in Netherlands. At this moment, it is much more important that they are ready for the big derby scheduled for next weekend in Amsterdam.
In total, these two teams played against each other five times in history. Ajax won all five times. In this season’s clash, it was 4:0 in Amsterdam.
Connor Goldson, Filip Helander, John Souttar, Ryan Jack, Tom Lawrence, Kemar Roofe and Ianis Hagi are injured and won’t play for Rangers. All players are available to Ajax.
