There is a huge amount on the line for Ajax and Dinamo Kiev in terms of prestige and financial reward heading into this two legged play-off.

Team news

Brazilian attacking midfielder David Neres went off injured during the weekend Eredivisie win at VVV Venlo and is a doubt for the game, whilst Kasper Dolberg is yet to feature this season after picking up an injury in the summer.

Preview

Ajax's home record in the Champions League (including both qualifiers and group stages) is relatively strong with the side suffering just two defeats in their last 12 games.

It is notable too, how frequently Ajax have found the back of the net, with the Dutch side failing to score just twice in their last 17 home Champions League ties - against Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively.
