Champions League Preview: Ajax – Auxerre

Firing Ahead

Ajax will look to keep their dream of reaching the Champions League knock-out stages alive when they meet an Auxerre side in something of a state of disarray.

The Dutch runners-up are aiming to keep in close contact with Real Madrid and Milan at the summit of the table, and they took a step towards the last 16 three weeks ago when they earned a home draw with the Rossoneri. Though Zlatan Ibrahimovic cancelled out Mounir El Hamdaoui’s opener, a point was enough to keep the Dutch side in contact with the Italians, who face the daunting prospect of a double-header against los Blancos.

A comfortable 3-0 victory over NAC at the weekend provided the Amsterdam club with an excellent springboard into this fixture, and cemented second place in the Eredivisie for Martin Jol’s side.

The story is too old to be commented.
