Ajax vs Sparta Rotterdam build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Ajax have looked irresistible since registering a 2-2 draw against title rivals PSV Eindhoven to begin the new year. Erik ten Hag’s men are currently on a six-game Eredivisie winning streak, which includes wins over Feyenoord and AZ to help them open up a six-point lead atop the table with a game in hand. At home, De Godenzonen have dropped five points from 30 available coming into Sunday’s game and will be confident of picking up another win over Sparta, who last beat Ajax away in the league in August 1989.
Chances of repeating that success look remote given the Rotterdammers’ form of late. Sparta, who sit in mid-table, are on a five-game winless streak though they don’t seem in any immediate danger of being sucked into a relegation battle. On the road they recently put together a three-match winning streak, which was ended by a narrow 1-0 loss at FC Utrecht while their last away trip saw them being held to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened ADO Den Haag. Given the Amsterdammers’ irresistible home form it will take something incredible for Henk Fraser’s men to join FC Twente and PSV as the only sides to deny Ajax a home win this season.
- Ajax (vs Lille): Stekelenburg; Rensch, Timber, Martínez, Tagliafico; Blind, Álvarez; Antony, Klaassen, Neres; Tadic.
- Sparta Rotterdam (vs Fortuna Sittard): Okoye; Abels, Beugelsdijk, Heylen, Pinto; Auassar, L. Duarte; Harroui, Thy, D. Duarte; Gravenberch.
Ryan Gravenberch and Sébastien Haller should earn a recall to Erik ten Hag’s starting lineup after missing Ajax’s win over Lille in the Europa League earlier this week. Tim Coremans, who’s suffering from a knee injury, is Sparta’s only absentee when they visit the Dutch capital.

Players to watch: Sébastien Haller (Ajax)
There was a smile on Sébastien Haller’s face when he ensured Ajax picked up all three points at Heracles last weekend. Before making it 2-0 in Almelo, the former West Ham marksman teed up Davy Klaassen to break the deadlock. Since joining Ajax in the January transfer window, Haller has contributed with either a goal or assist in all but one of his seven Eredivisie appearances to date (when they inflicted a 3-1 defeat on Willem II last month). Haller goes into Sunday’s game having netted three goals (none interestingly coming at home) but more impressively creating five more. Can the Ivorian striker, at the fourth time of asking, finally break his Johan Cruijff ArenA duck this weekend?
