Ajax are defending a 2-0 lead from the 1st leg of this UEL quarter-final encounter with FC Schalke 04 .

Last week was a horrifying week for FC Schalke 04. Schalke lost to AFC Ajax 0-2 and after a dismal performance, they were very lucky only losing the match by a 2 goal margin.

FC Schalke 04 followed up that poor display by losing to the bottom side in the German Bundesliga, Darmstadt 1-2. Everything went against FC Schalke 04 in that match. They were 0-1 down and pushed on for an equalizer and when the big chance arrived, a penalty, they wasted it, but late on they found an equalizer, they pushed further for a winning goal, but one of their players were shown the red card and then they lost to the last minute goal.

AFC Ajax strikes me as a team in top form and it certainly looks like FC Schalke 04 are facing too tough a task today. AFC Ajax scored 5 goals at the weekend. To stop the Dutch from scoring sounds close to impossible for FC Schalke 04.

The FC Schalke 04 midfielder Kehrer will be suspended for this match, Coke and Choupo-Moting will not play and both Kolasinac and Höwedes are injury doubts.

Schöne and Dolberg, who missed the 1st leg for AFC Ajax, will be available for this 2nd leg, but Sinkgraven will not make it for this match.

AFC Ajax will play a big match against PSV next in Eredivisie and what are they looking for today? A goal, we think, then FC Schalke 04 will have to score 4 goals and it will not happen.

The last time FC Schalke 04 overturned a 1st-leg defeat to progress in European competition was in the 2011-12 UEFA Europa League – against Dutch side FC Twente.

No team has kept more clean sheets than AFC Ajax in the UEFA Europa League this season (6, level with Manchester Utd).

Last week’s match was the first competitive meeting of these clubs.

FC Schalke 04 have played 3 previous matches at home to Dutch opponents and won them all by a 3-goal margin.

AFC Ajax will head to the UEL semi-final and they will score today.
