Twente vs Ajax build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Last season was a satisfactory campaign for Twente who finished mid-table. The club from Enschede were never in danger of being dragged into a relegation battle, ultimately ending up sitting 11 points above the drop zone, but they nevertheless registered the fewest wins (10) of any side in the top eleven. Sunday’s showdown will be the 64th time The Tukkers have welcomed Ajax to their home. In those previous meetings they’ve won 18 times with the most recent coming in December 2016 when they posted a narrow 1-0 win — Mateusz Klich converting a 90th minute spotkick.
A humbling loss in Johan Cruyff Shield game to championship rivals PSV Eindhoven was immediately forgotten when Ajax put on a show against NEC in their Eredivisie opener. Erik ten Hag’s men were relentless as they raced into a 4-0 lead before the quarter hour mark. They would go into the break 5-0 up and that was all she wrote. The result stretched the Amsterdammers winning streak in their domestic competition to six matches and heading into matchday two Ajax are on a 15-game unbeaten streak away from the Dutch capital with 13 of those matches ending with them grabbing all three points.
- Twente (vs Fortuna Sittard): Unnerstall; Troupée, Pröpper, Oosterwolde, Smal; Bosch, Zerrouki; Limnios, Ilic, Menig; Van Wolfswinkel.
- Ajax (vs NEC): Stekelenburg; Mazraoui, Timber, Martínez, Blind; Gravenberch, Álvarez; Berghuis, Klaassen, Tadic; Haller.
Twente boss Ron Jans must do without a number of injured players heading into this weekend’s game. Kik Pierie, Julio Pleguezuelo, Dario Dumic, Wout Brama, Vaclav Cerny, Jody Lukoki and Virgil Misidjan are ruled out. Nicolás Tagliafico and Kenneth Taylor remain suspended for Ajax while Perr Schuurs, Sean Klaiber and Mohammed Kudus are sidelined with respective injuries.

Player to watch: Dusan Tadic (Ajax)
It’s fair to say Dusan Tadic really made his name at FC Twente where across two seasons he managed to find the net 32 times in 85 total outings. But equally impressive was the fact Tadic registered 36 assists. These performances earned him a big move to Southampton and though he never took over the Premier League there were glimpses of his mercurial self. A return to the Netherlands beckoned and he’s since established himself as the Dutch top division’s most outstanding player. The newly-promoted NEC found that out on matchday one when Tadic grabbed a brace and created one more in Ajax’s comfortable 5-0 victory. He’s now three strikes away from reaching a century of Eredivisie goals to go with his 100+ assists.
