De Boer sees value in the Europa League

Ajax is one game away from the UEFA Europa League after the winter break. On Tuesday night, in Madrid, the Dutch champions will try to hold on to third spot in group D. Only if Manchester City defeats group winner Borussia Dortmund would Ajax need to win in Bernabéu against Real Madrid, who has already qualified. Frank de Boer: “Playing European matches makes us stronger in the competition.”
