Nouri collapsed during a pre-season friendly earlier this summer, with Ajax since confirming that the 20-year-old suffered “serious and permanent brain damage”.
Tonight’s game is Ajax’s first official match of the season and Nouri would most likely have been involved in some capacity as the youngster played 15 league and cup games for the Dutch side in 2016-17:

Yesterday it was confirmed that Nouri is no longer in an induced coma and is breathing unaided.
However, the 20-year-old isn’t expected to recover from the brain damage he suffered during the match against Werder Bremen.
