Ajax remains focussed and is counting on a chance to win

Preparations for the return match against Spartak Moscow were slightly frustrated on Wednesday by various inconveniences. A problem with a visa and heavy afternoon traffic in the Russian capital caused evening practice to be delayed. In the ensuing press conference manager Frank de Boer looked ahead with unbridled optimism. Just like Demy de Zeeuw, the Ajax manager is counting on a spot in the quarter finals of the EUFA Europa League.
