We can’t help but mention that prior to that they had 4 consecutive victory results against Heracles, AZ Alkmaar, Willem ll and Sittard. Also they are currently in the top of the standings with 56 points, 6 over PSV.
On the other hand Lille will enter the game after a 4-1 victory result against Lorient on Sunday in the Ligue 1 competition. As well as Ajax, Lille is the first team in their national standings with 4 victory result and a draw in their last 5 games.

The last game played between Ajax and Lille was Friday, 19.02.2021 in the first game of the Play-offs where Lille was the host of the game. Ajax managed to win 2-1 in an away scenario.
