AZ vs Ajax build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

AZ are flying at the moment, winning each of their last five matches and going without a domestic defeat since November 7th. Jesper Karlsson and Evangelos Pavalidis both come into this game in great form with four goals (each) from their last five appearances. Each of their last three and five of their last seven have seen both teams net and over 2.5 goals. They last made the final in 2018 (and also in 2017) but have not won the trophy since 2013.

Ajax are the league leaders but they did lose last weekend to Go Ahead Eagles going down 2-1 to make it two in all competitions without a victory. Their defence is usually rock solid with clean sheets in nine of their last ten domestic fixtures. They also have firepower going forward with Sebastien Haller leading the line with six in his last six domestic starts. It has been two cup victories in the last four seasons for Ajax and they will be hungry to add more silverware.

  • Ajax (vs Utrecht): Onana; Rensch, Schuurs, Martínez, Blind; Klaasen, Álvarez; Tadic, Berghuis, Antony, Haller
  • AZ (vs their previous opponents): Vindahl; Witry, Chatzidiakos, Martins Indi, Wijndal; Clasie, Midtsjö; De Wit, Sugawara, Karlsson; Pavlidis.

AZ will have to decide whether to rotate their team with the games coming thick and fast or keep faith with the 11 who beat Feyernood at the weekend. Ajax will be hoping that Brian Brobbey (knee) can return but influential keeper Maarten Stekelenburg is ruled out for the rest of the season.

Player to watch: Evangelos Pavlidis (AZ)

The Greek international seems to have settled into the AZ lineup after his summer move from Willem II, where he impressed with two successive double figure campaigns. He has ten for the campaign and four in his last four in all competitions. The 23-year-old looks to be finally building on the promise that saw him sign for Dortmund as a younger player and was named as oe of the top under 17 talents to watch after a u17 tournament in Bulgaria. He looks to finally be showcasing that potential and the Ajax defence will have to be fully alert to this skillful powerful player.
