Ajax are coming off a 2-2 draw at Vitesse in their opening fixture in the Dutch Eredivisie. They twice came from behind with Donny van der Beek and Dusan Tadic ensuring they earned a share of the spoils.
PAOK vs Ajax Match Up
Chuba Akpom is coming off an excellent display against Fortuna Sittard and could be the one to watch for PAOK. His combination with Dimitris Pelkas and Leo Jaba should be too much to handle for a shaky Ajax backline. Ajax also have plenty of quality in attack with Dusan Tadic, Kasper Dolberg and Hakim Ziyech. All three men are quick and tricky and should get the better of the PAOK defence.
