The Ajax vs Manchester United match will be played on Wednesday, May 23 at the Friends Arena, Solna. These teams have qualified for Europa League final after Ajax eliminated Lyon and Manchester United eliminated Celta in semifinals.


  • Ajax won 3 out of their last 4 games in all competitions. They scored at least 3 goals in each of those matches. Ajax finished second in Eredivisie, only one point behind Feyenoord.
  • Manchester United recorded only one victory in their last 5 games in all competitions. They didn't score more than two goals in 12 consecutive matches. Manchester United failed to qualify for Champions League through Premier League, and they have to win the upcoming game to play in Europe's elite competition in the next season.


Ajax and Manchester United met 4 times so far, and both teams recorded 2 victories.


Ajax was disappointed to lose Eredivisie race for only one point margin, but if they defeat Manchester United and lift Europa League trophy, this season will be regarded as very successful. On the road to the final, Ajax eliminated Legia Warshaw by 1:0, FC Copenhagen by 3:2, Schalke by 4:3 and Lyon by 5:4. They conceded 7 goals in their last 3 Europa League matches, and that can be a problem in the final. However, the Dutch team is always attack-minded, and they will try to outscore the famous English club.

Manchester United finished 6th in Premier League, which is their second worst finish in Premier League history. The Europa League trophy is the only trophy they didn't win so far, and Jose Mourinho put everything in the upcoming game. If they fail to win, this season will be regarded as one of the worst in the history of the club.
