Ajax draw Rosenborg in Europa League play-offs

Following last week’s devastating Champions League loss to OGC Nice (3-3 on aggregate), Ajax will now turn it’s attention to qualification for the Europa League. The Amsterdammers were drawn into the play-offs for the tournament, in which they will meet Norwegian side Rosenborg.

Rosenberg, winners of the Eliteserien in 2016, boast a worthy opponent and will be a tough test for Ajax, who host the first leg on August 17th and then travel to Norway for the second leg on August 24th.

While the Amsterdam side will not be getting any Champions League football this year, they will be aiming to recreate the magic of last season’s Europa League run and translate that into succes this year.
