Enosis have beaten Celtic and Vidi in the Qualifiers and started off their Super League campaign in a similar fashion, bagging nine points in three games – including a great 4-0 home win over Panionios just days ago. Marinos Ouzounidis will want his men to take confidence from it and it’s hard seeing it any other way, which promises an in-form outfit on the day.

Ajax come into the match on the back of a similarly convincing Eredivisie win, where they outclassed Groningen and bagged a 3-0 win at this ground. They’ve based their Champions League Qualifiers success on performances at Johan Cruijff Arena – only beating both Standard Liege and Dynamo Kyiv here with draws on the road along the way – and will want more of the same in the Group Stage.

Ajax vs AEK Athens: Head-to-head

  • This is the sides’ first matchup ever, as they haven’t had a chance to meet before.
  • Ajax come off as favourites to win, boasting a rock-solid spell of form in front of the home crowd.
  • AEK have been a very pleasant surprise early in the competition and want to cause an immediate upset in Group E.

Ajax vs AEK Athens: Prediction

We have seen AEK regularly netting goals on the road and we do see them making it happen once again, as we stick our necks out for a Double Chance – Draw or Away win at 3.00 – which does feel like more than just a lively longshot at this point.

However, they could have to outgun the rivals who boast great goalscoring tally at Johan Cruijff Arena to do so! We thus expect a very narrow occasion but with goals, as we also back a YES on Both teams to score at 2.00 – hoping the visitors can show off in the attacking third.

Ajax vs AEK Athens: Bet Tips

  • Double Chance – Draw or Away win @ 3.00 (2/1)
  • Both teams to score YES @ 2.00 (1/1).
