De Boer about Ajax-Roma: ‘Difficult draw for both teams’

Wed 24 March 2021 | 8:34

Ronald de Boer expects a difficult game for both Roma and Ajax in the Europa Leauge quarter-finals.

The Giallorossi are the only Italian team left in Europe and will face

Ajax

who failed in the Champions League group stage.

“I think it’s a difficult draw for both teams, as they are very interesting sides,”

former Ajax star and current youth team coach De Boer told Teleradiostereo

.

“There were other very strong clubs in the draw, such as Arsenal and Manchester United. I think qualification is wide open in this one, as Ajax have grown a great deal in recent years, while Roma – albeit not being at the top in Italy – are a very strong side.

“The fact Ajax have practically secured their domestic title already is probably a small advantage when it comes to preparing for the quarter-final.

“On the other hand, the fact the Eredivisie isn’t a top tournament also damages Ajax in terms of practice. Another weakness is the lack of alternatives in attack, as there’s only really Dusan Tadic, and he’s not even a center-forward.”
