Match Preview & Team News
Ajax stormed to a pair of impressive 3-0 wins in two Group H affairs, but they are about to revoke the memories of the previous match against English opposition on Wednesday night when Chelsea travel to Amsterdam for the third-round derby. The late goal in the sixth minute of the added time prevented Ajax from featuring the Champions League final last time around when Lucas Moura ended their dream run bagging Tottenham’s third goal in the reverse fixture of the semi-final at Johan Cruijff Arena.
De Godenzonen lost some of their key men from the previous stellar campaign in the summer transfer window, but Erik ten Hag still has a powerful group of players on disposal. Ajax are three points clear at the top of both Champions League Group H and Eredivisie after PSV’s weekend slip-up at Utrecht.
The hosts made it five wins on the spin on Saturday when they went past RKC Waalwijk 1-2 on the road. They scored two or more goals in nine of the last ten games across competitions, a thread which began with the 2-0 home win over APOEL in the Champions League play-off.
Chelsea have rarely managed to keep things quiet at the back so far in the season which is why we’d not be surprised to see the hosts maintaining such a tremendous attacking run. The Blues also won five in a row in all competitions but they are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road. Frank Lampard’s troops allowed at least two goals in four of six away matches, but we also have to say they’ve won four on the trot in the process. The streak involves an important rebound win at Lille in the second round of the Champions League.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Ajax left a much better impression with two 3-0 wins. They went all the way to the semi-final last season eliminating the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus in the knockout phase. The home win is well worth backing at the 13/10 odds.
