Ajax wants a good finish to NextGen pool phase

Ajax A1 will finish the pool phase of the NextGen Series on Tuesday (7p.m.) with a home game against their counterparts from Chelsea FC. Despite the fact that A1 is already assured of a spot among the last sixteen teams, the game against The Blues will be a key one for the Ajax players. “It’s all about the starting point”, explains A1 coach Alfons Groenendijk. “We want to be first, but we could also end up in third place. It’s all about the rankings, and whether we get a favourable or difficult draw.”
