Both clubs will head into the game on good runs of form with AC Milan unbeaten in their last 6 games, winning three of them, including a 3-1 success over Celtic last time out.

Milan will go into the clash on the back of a 2-2 draw with Livorno, a result that kept them mid-table in the Serie A standings. Mario Balotelli scored twice in the game to take his tally to four in his last three games and to 12 for the season in all competitions.

Ajax meanwhile are currently in the midst of a run of six straights win including back to back 4-0 wins over Den Haag and NAC Breda.

The Dutch side also enjoyed a stunning 2-1 win over Barcelona in their last group game, a result that guaranteed them European football next year regardless of the result in Milan.

The club have struggled recently on their travels and are without a win in their last 6 away games however they have a good recent record in Italy returning undefeated on their last three trips, including a 2-0 win over their midweek hosts in the 2010/2011 season.

De Boer will head into the game without the suspended Joel Veltman while Milan will be without Marco Amelia, Mattia De Sciglio.

The two sides drew 1-1 when they met in Amsterdam with Balotelli’s 94th goal cancelling out Stefano Denswil 90th minute effort.

In addition to not only claiming their place in the knockout stages there is the additional incentive of knowing that should Barcelona slip up at home to Celtic the winner in Italy could secure top spot in the group and a more favourable round two fixture.
