Another very exciting duel scheduled today comes from UEFA Europa League, with Ajax and Lyon facing each other in the first semifinal from 17:45, UK Time.
Ajax Amsterdam are not in their best form, coming here after two losses. The last one was against PSV and they are out of title race in Eredivisie now. Ajax will give their best in Europa League from now on and they need a positive result in the first leg against Lyon. It won't be easy at all, but they have the fans behind. Veltman and Viergever will miss this clash, both being suspended.
Lyon will be without Memphis Depay, ineligible for this duel because he participated in Europa League earlier in the season with Man United. Just like their opponents, the visitors are out of form since they ticked three losses in the previous five official games. More than that, Lyon have managed to keep only one clean sheet in the last nine matches in all competitions, in a 3-0 win over Metz two months ago.
Ajax vs Lyon probable lineups:
Ajax (4-3-3): Onana - Tete, Sanchez, Ligt, Sinkgraven - Klaassen, Schone, Ziyech - Traore, Dolberg, Younes.
