Ajax vs Getafe
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 27 February 2020
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam
Europa League playoffs have started last week and one of the biggest surprises so far was 2-0 win for Getafe against Ajax Amsterdam.
The Dutch champions had a really bad day and failed to produce much when it comes to offense.
It turned out that could be beginning of a crisis, as the follow up game in Eredivisie against Heracles didn’t end well either.
Ajax are still favorites to at least win this match at Johan Cruyff Arena at 1.85 odds. Can they qualify though?
Ajax vs Getafe Head-to-head
Considering how rarely Getafe plays on the European scene, it is not surprising to find out these two teams have never met before except the match in Spain last Thursday.
In case you missed it, team from Madrid’s suburb won the first match against Ajax 2-0 thanks to the goals scored by Deyverson and Kennedy. They allowed only two shots to the Dutch champions, none of them on target.
Ajax vs Getafe Prediction
Ajax had very high possession in the first match, around 65%, and we are expecting them to hold the ball this time as well. Despite the domestic loss to Heracles on Sunday, they are still doing good in terms of standings and the gap from AZ & Feyenoord.
Hakeem Ziyech, Dusan Tadic, Ryan Babbel and co have vast experience in playing European matches and we expect them to turn the tides around against Getafe.
Home win is going to be our primary betting suggestion and we will suggest high stake bet this time.
Visitors are without a doubt the biggest surprise package in La Liga this season. They are sitting in high 3rd position at the moment, but no one really expects them to play in Champions League next season.
The form has already started to decline with latest losses to Barcelona and Sevilla with a total goal difference of 1-5. This said, 3.00 odds on Ajax to score in both halves seems like a great deal.
