While the Seagulls have gone over four weeks without a win in any competition, their Dutch counterparts remarkably last tasted success at the end of August.

Roberto De Zerbi was able to take positives from his side salvaging single points in 2-2 draws with Marseille and Liverpool either side of the international break, but Brighton were beaten 2-1 away against treble winners Manchester City last weekend.

With just one point collected from their opening two matches in their debut Europa League campaign, Brighton currently sit rock bottom of Group B, one points behind Ajax and Marseille in third and second respectively, while surprise package AEK Athens boast four points at the top.

Ajax have failed to win eight successive competitive matches for the first time since the introduction of professional football in the Netherlands back in 1954, with a 4-3 away defeat to Utrecht proving to be the final nail to the coffin for head coach Maurice Steijn.

Assistant coach Hedwiges Maduro has been placed in interim charge and is presented with a tricky start to his temporary reign, with Thursday’s Europa League trip to Brighton followed just three days later by an Eredivisie encounter with league leaders PSV Eindhoven, who already sit 22 points clear of Ajax at this early stage of the campaign.

Ajax have struggled against English opposition in recent years, winning just one of their last seven meetings with Premier League teams in European competition, but their unbeaten group-stage run bodes well for Thursday’s contest as they have not lost any of their previous 11 Europa League group matches.

Brighton & Hove Albion Team News

Brighton’s Danny Welbeck was forced off in the opening 16 minutes against Man City with a muscle problem, while Solly March was stretched off in tears after jarring his knee in the closing stages.

Julio Enciso (knee), Pervis Estupinan (muscle) and Tariq Lamptey (knock) are all sidelined, while Thursday’s game will likely come too soon for midfielder Jakub Moder.
