Having turned the tides into their favor in recent games after a slow start to the season, Ajax take on Brighton and Hove Albion in search of a third consecutive victory in all competitions at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Thursday in the Europa League.
The Dutch side will look to avenge their defeat to the Seagulls after a disappointing 2-0 loss in England at the Amex Stadium with Joao Pedro and Ansu Fati registering their names on the scoresheet.
Despite scoring four goals in their opening two games, Brighton only had a point to themselves due to indiscipline and poor defending until they secured a victory over Ajax in the reverse fixture to record their first European win ever.
Ajax had suffered four consecutive defeats and lost 10 games in the Eredivisie while in the red zone prior to John van’t Schip’s appointment as manager.
However, Schip has Ajax finding themselves again after back-to-back wins in the Dutch League after edging past Volendam and Heerenveen respectively and conceding just once in 180 minutes.
Brighton eye first place in Group B should compatriots Marseille and AEK Athens play out a draw and will look to bounce back to winning ways after playing out a one all draw with Everton last weekend.
The match is scheduled for 5:45 pm Kickoff.
