Ajax hosts Chelsea
Ajax hosts Chelsea at the Johan Cruijff Arena in one of the most interesting Champions League games on Wednesday. This is a fixture from Group H of the competition. Let’s take a look in our Champions League predictions for today.
Ajax are flawless in the group so far, winning both of their games in the first two rounds. After their win against Lille in the first round, Erik ten Hag’s boys travelled to Valencia and enjoyed another dominating 3-0 win. Hakim Ziyech and Quincy Promes scored before the halftime break, while Donny van de Beek finished the job after halftime. Dusan Tadic assisted for two of the goals in the game.
This is answering our questions how Ajax are going to deal with the departures of key figures like Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong in the summer. So far they are doing pretty well, even without these two stars. Erik ten Hag continues to do a great work with the team.
During the week the Dutch champions had a visit to RKC Waalwijk in the Eredivisie, achieving a 2-1 win. Dusan Tadic and Quincy Promes scored for the visitors.
Chelsea had a foul start in this group, suffering a surprising home defeat against Valencia in the first round. But the more important thing is that Frank Lampard’s team reacted well, winning their second game against Lille on French ground. It was Tammy Abraham and Willian who scored for the visitors.
During the weekend Chelsea hosted Newcastle United at the Stamford Bridge, enjoying a difficult, but important 1-0 win. The Spanish left back Marcos Alonso scored the only goal in the 73th minute of the match.
That’s our Champions League predictions for the game from Group H between Ajax and Chelsea. We believe that Ajax have a slight advantage here, but Chelsea are starting to play better under Frank Lampard. They are going to be dangerous.
