De Jong: 'Ajax like PSV'

Milan face Ajax in the Champions League this evening and Nigel De Jong trusts it’ll be “more or less the same as PSV.”

The Rossoneri are currently joint top of Group H after a 2-0 victory over Celtic, while Ajax were beaten 4-0 in Barcelona.

This is the second trip to Holland in just over a month, as Milan played PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League preliminary round.

The first leg ended 1-1 before a 3-0 result secured qualification at San Siro.

“Ajax will be more or less the same as PSV, so I expect pretty much the same type of match,” said the Dutch midfielder.

“They are young and have a lot of courage, so we will have to be careful.”

Mario Balotelli is available, as his three-match ban only applies to Serie A, but Stephan El Shaarawy is out of action for 20-30 days after suffering a microfracture in his foot during training on Monday.
