After winning the Klassieker on sunday, Ten Hag and his players are facing AZ Alkmaar on wednesday to get themselves into the last 8 of the KNVB Beker.

AZ hasn’t been the same this season, but did beat PSV and ADO Den Hag after the winterbreak. They’re fifth in the Eredivisie and only 7 points behind the leaders from Amsterdam. It’s their first cup game this season, as they got a free pass last round. Ajax had a difficult game against FC Utrecht, but won 5-4 in the end.

Although AZ is not an easy opponent, Ten Hag seems to rotate a bit, due to Ajax’ busy schedule this month.

Predicted line-up Ajax:Stekelenburg, Rensch, Schuurs, Martinez, Tagliafico, Alvarez, Klaassen, Gravenberch, Neres, Labyad, Promes
