Although Ajax have a bad record against Austrian teams in recent times, Red Bull Salzburg and Rapid Vienna, didn't Ajax beat Sturm Graz in a CL qualifying round in the early 2000s?

Almost!! I looked up some of those qualifications and in 2003-04 Ajax qualified against Grazer AK; it's in the same city but a different club.

Thanks Orange14... Check this out.

Now managed by former Bayern Munich youth manager, Heiko Vogel, Sturm Graz will line up with Austrian Footballer of the Year, Peter Zulj.

Zulj scored 10 goals in the Austrian Bundesliga last season as well as getting 17 assists, catching the interests of English sides Fulham and Queens Park Rangers.

The Blackies also have former Germany international Christian Schulz in their ranks, with the 35-year-old offering experience to the Austrian sides defence.

Ajax will certainly go into tie as massive favourites but will need to be careful if they want to play in the biggest club competition in the world.

Ajax have posted their list of players for the CL. It's interesting that de Ligt, van de Beek and Mazraoui are not on this 'A' List. Clubs can have an unlimited number on the 'B' List and need only be registered the day prior to the match. According to UEFA "...A player may be registered on List B if he is born on, or after, 1 January 1997 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday (players aged 16 may be registered if they have been registered with the club for the previous two years). Clubs are entitled to register an unlimited number of players on List B during the season, but the list must be submitted by no later than 24:00CET the day before a match."

It's not a big deal that the three players mentioned are not on the list. Similarly, Serhuis or some other Jong Ajax players can be added as long as they meed the criteria.

Ajax got lucking in the draw for the third qualifying round for the CL. The winner of this tie plays Standard Liege of Belgium and avoids Fenerbace, Spartak Moscow or Slavia Prague. Now the only question is whether they can take advantage of this.

Not a bad draw indeed Standard Liege, but in European campaigns Ajax has struggled with even smaller teams in the past.

First things first Ajax will have to eliminate Sturm Graz.
