In the previous round of the Champions League qualifiers Ajax did the job against Belgian Standard Liege.

The goals in the game were scored by Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Matthijs de Ligt and David Neres. It was a great performance by the Dutch club, who is motivated to once again return to the groups of the Champions League.
In the domestic Eredivisie Ajax started with one win and one draw in the first two rounds. They began with a draw against Heracles at home, but in the previous round Ajax recorded their first win – 1-0 during the visit to VVV.
Dynamo Kiev reached the playoffs after eliminating the Czech Slavia Praha in the previous round. The first leg in Praha ended with a 1-1 draw, but in the second leg Dynamo won comfortably with 2-0 in the Ukrainian capital.
