An exciting game awaits us on Thursday evening when Ajax and Brighton face each other in Group B of the Europa League group stage.

Ajax have not been the same since Erik ten Hag left for Man United in June last year. The Eredivisie record champions signed John van 't Schip at the end of last month to replace Hedwiges Maduro who had only been at the club for just over a month. John van 't Schip is now the club's fifth head coach in just over a year but the 59-year-old has already brought about significant improvements, winning all two games under his stewardship.

Brighton meanwhile were already successful under Graham Potter but Roberto De Zerbi has made the club even better. The Seagulls qualified for European football for the first time ever last season and are not doing badly domestically this season. De Zerbi's men's Europa League campaign hasn't quite gone to plan (4 points from three games), but they still have a good chance of progressing from Group B.

Ajax vs Brighton Betting Tips: Both teams to score

Ajax have made the worst start to a season in their history but are still a good team in the final third. Only the teams in the top five of the Eredivisie have scored more goals than the "sons of the gods" this season.

Brighton's games in all competitions this season have made headlines primarily for their entertainment value. In their fifteen matches this season, an average of three goals per game were scored. Only two of those games have seen both teams fail to score.

Ajax team news

Ajax had no injuries in last weekend's win over Heerenveen, so it would be no surprise if coach John van 't Schip keeps his starting eleven.

With his goal in that game, Brian Brobbey has already scored six goals in all competitions this season, while Steven Bergwijn is the club's top scorer with seven goals.

Gerónimo Rulli, Sivert Mannsverk and Amourricho van Axel Dongen are all struggling with injuries and Thursday's game is likely to come too soon for them.

Brighton team news

Brighton had no new injuries to report from last weekend's Premier League tie against Brighton but Roberto De Zerbi is expected to reshuffle his starting eleven.

Ansu Fati - who is on loan from FC Barcelona - scored the winner when these two sides met in the reverse fixture.

The 21-year-old did not start last weekend's game but is expected to start Thursday's game and could be joined in the final third by João Pedro and Kaoru Mitoma.

Julio Enciso has been struggling with a meniscus injury since August but the forward is the visitors’ only injury concern.
