In the fourth round of the Europa League, Ajax will host Brighton Hove Albion. The previous encounter saw Brighton clinching a convincing victory. Will the Dutch side recover and beat the Seagulls?
It has been a terrible season for Ajax, who have recently sacked a head coach. However recent two wins against Heerenveen and Volendam helped them occupy 11th place. In just 10 games they have 11 points.
At the Europa League, Ajax sit fourth in the group with two draws and one loss. The negative result in this match will be a massive blow to their hopes of advancing to the next round.
Brighton meanwhile have been showing attacking football under De Zerbi. They are currently seventh in the Premier League, having 18 points after 11 matches.
The Europa League campaign was also a rollercoaster for Brighton. In the first match, they unexpectedly lost against AEK and then drew against Marseille. The draw in this match will likely be a good result for them, but it still does not guarantee anything.Bet here
Jay Gorter, Sivert Mannsverk, Geronimo Rulli, Amourricho van Axel Dongen and Branco van den Boomen will all be absent due to an injury.
Brighton will be without a Paraguayan starlet Julio Enciso who has a knee injury. Also, they will lack the assistance of Solly March and Danny Welbeck. Pervis Estupinan is questionable.

Both Ajax and Brighton like to play attacking football. The resurgence of Ajax is visible, but we think that Brighton are a better and organized side. Still, without key players they are capable of beating the Dutch side.
