Ajax vs Bayern Munich
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 12 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam).
The top spot in Group E is at stake as Ajax host Bayern Munich in the last game of the round-robin phase on Wednesday evening at Johan Cruijff Arena. The Bavarian giants are in a better position as they need a draw to save the first place being two points adrift of Dutch Eredivisie runners-up coming into the final Matchday fixture in Amsterdam.
Ajax have already accomplished their goal with an overwhelming Champions League campaign. They took four points off Benfica in a double header in thirds and fourth round, while they confirmed the favourites tag in two fixtures with AEK Athens as well. De Godenzonen have an impressive 5-0 goal difference in two games with Greek champions.
Ajax vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
This will be the tenth head to head encounter between the two European giants.
Home sides held the upper hand throughout the history, as six of past nine H2H games saw home wins, while remaining three ended in draws.
This term’s H2H clash saw a 1-1 draw in Munich.
Ajax vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Both sides will come into the game in high spirits following their superb attacking showings at the weekend. Ajax kept the pressure on PSV at the top of the Eredivsiie ladder with a demolishing 1-4 victory away at PEC Zwolle. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Frenkie de Jong, Lasse Schone and Dusan Tadic were all on the scoreline. The Serbian midfielder bagged team’s last three Champions League goals, including a brace in a 0-2 previous round victory in Greece.
However, Ajax will also have to keep a close look at Bayern’s in-form attacking line, led by the Polish predator Robert Lewandowski. His brace inspired a comfortable 3-0 victory over recently-promoted Nurnberg on Saturday afternoon. Bayern made it three wins on the spin in all competitions netting an impressive ten-goal tally in the process.
Both teams have been thriving in the final third of late which is why we have to back the BTTS bet as the main betting option here.
