Ajax is still keeping the same pace from the previous season. The Dutch team proved that by smashing Valencia in Spain. Chelsea, meanwhile, is above the expectations in general, but they still had a slip against the Bats in London. The Blues’ young core is growing, and from time to time, they will have such problems.

Ajax is convincing at home, as they always have been. In the previous five games at Amsterdam Arena or Johan Cruyff, as it is called nowadays, the four-time European champions have five victories. And all of them are pretty impressive. The total goal difference is 16:1, four games ended with Ajax keeping the clean sheets, and in all of them, Erik ten Hag’s crew netted at least twice. Even though Frankie De Jong and Mathijs De Ligt left the club, it seems that the Lancers aren’t slowing down. Dusan Tadic is holding everything in order, and with several new arrivals, Ajax is looking keen on making another big result in this edition of the Champions League.

Chelsea is still forming its team, unlike Ajax. The transfer ban Blues have forced Frank Lampard to search for solutions in the youth academy, and for now, that gave results. Chelsea is one of the youngest teams in the Premiership and the UCL, and so far, they are doing ok. Now, the failure at home versus Valencia complicated things for the London club, and they have to look for redemption on the road. Chelsea hasn’t lost in the previous five matches in all the competitions. The latest one against Newcastle, 1-0, was the only one in which Abraham and the boys couldn’t score two or more goals. When looking only the games away from the Stamford Bridge, Chelsea has four straight wins, all of them over 2.5 goals, and just one which didn’t end with over 4.5 scores.

Team News

Ajax doesn’t have any problems with injured players, while the situation is a bit different for the guests.

N’Golo Kante won’t play in Amsterdam, centre-back Rudiger also as well as Christensen. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is still side-lined, while Emerson Palmieri stands questionable for this event.

Prediction

We think that this match will see a lot of goals. Simply, both sides like to play aggressive and offensive, which opens up a possibility for lots of scores on both sides. It is why we propose to bet on over 2.5 goals in this one. From our point of view, it is maybe the safest bet of the day. The previous results of both sides are reassuring us that we’ve made the right decision. Bet365 offers a nice profit here, with the odds at 4/6.

We have another suggestion regarding goals. It is a bit riskier, but the odds are superb. Over 1.5 goals in the first 45 minutes are looking excellent for us at the moment. Ajax always starts pressuring from the opening kick-off, and the same applies to the guests from England. Bet365’s odds are at 11/8, which is when we look at all the circumstances, a good deal.
