Ajax will be looking to become the first Dutch club since Feyenoord in 1971/72 to win their opening five games of a European Cup campaign when they visit Besiktas on Wednesday at 5:45pm (UK time).
Erik ten Hag’s men have already secured their spot in the last-16 of the Champions League and first place in Group C, sitting six points clear of Borussia Dortmund with a superior head-to-head record. The Turkish champions, meanwhile, find themselves rock bottom on no points and have conceded 12 goals across their opening four games.

Player to watch: Antony (Ajax)
Another deep Champions League run seemingly awaits Ajax who, last time out, became the first Dutch club to win their opening four Champions League matches in a season (since its rebrand). Playing an instrumental role in this early success has been Brazilian forward Antony; the 21-year-old provided two assists as Ajax ran out 3-1 winners at Borussia Dortmund on matchday four, was the second time he’s registered at least two assists in a game following their matchday one success at Sporting (5-1). He’s on the cusp of making recent history as no player since 2003/04 has ever managed to do this in three matches in a single campaign.
