Marseille will visit Ajax’s headquarters in the first match of Group B in the preliminary round of the 2023/24 UEFA Europa League. This match will take place on Thursday afternoon 9/21. This is a very interesting and decisive match for both teams.
Marseille is one of the big teams from France and Europe. They have achieved many achievements in the highest competitions such as Ligue 1, Champions League and Europa League. Marseille also has a strong and quality squad with bright stars such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ismalia Sarr, Gueye and many other players.
Marseille is in very good form with being unbeaten in the last 6 matches in all competitions. They managed to escape the Champions League play-off round with a 4-1 aggregate win over Galatasaray. In Ligue 1, they are in third place with 10 points from 4 matches.
Marseille can be confident when facing Ajax, a team that has weakened a lot compared to last season. Ajax lost many important pillars such as Mohammed Kudus, Geronimo Rulli, Hakim Ziyech and many other players. They also failed to defend the Eredivisie title and could only play in the Europa League.
Ajax is in very poor form with only winning 2, drawing 2 and losing 5 of the last 9 matches. In the Eredivisie, they only got 5 points from 4 matches and are ranked eighth. In the Europa League, they struggled to make it out of the play-offs with a narrow 4-2 win over Ludogorets.
Ajax also did not have home advantage when they lost 1-0 to Ludogorets at the Johan Cruijff Arena at the start of September. In away matches, they also did not get good results by not winning in the last 8 matches in the Europa League.
In the past, Marseille was also no less competitive with Ajax when they won 1, drew 1 and lost 1 of 3 meetings. With superiority in terms of strength, performance and meeting history, Marseille is expected to achieve positive results when they visit Ajax headquarters.
