Last year's semi-finalists Ajax will be aiming to perform extraordinarily once again.

The youthful Dutch team is placed alongside Lille, Chelsea and Valencia.

Chelsea and Valencia look strong on paper. But going by Ajax's spirit and the vibrancy in play, they could go on to do well.

They lost Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt in the summer.

But don't write Ajax off.
