Ajax vs Union Berlin Team News

Heitinga may choose to keep changes to a minimum for this fixture, potentially making just one alteration to bring Brian Brobbey back into the team.

That would likely see Francisco Conceicao drop out with Dusan Tadic moving out wide to feature on the left flank.

Although Calvin Bassey is an option in the defence, the former Rangers man may have to make do with a spot among the replacements.

Fischer will be forced into making at least one change to his Union Berlin XI with Janik Haberer serving a one-match ban for three yellow cards.

Either Morten Thorsby or Paul Seguin are in line to be handed a recall, but further rotation is a possibility with Timo Baumgartl, Jerome Roussillon and Jordan Siebatcheu all options in defence, on the flank and in attack.

Christopher Trimmel is also suspended for Union Berlin, although he was only named on the substitutes’ bench at the weekend.
