Ajax vs Midtjylland
Europe – UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 25 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena.
Liverpool have almost ensured that they would finish as champions in Group D, and now the race for the second spot would get hot. As of now, the Lancers as well as Atalanta have posted the same number of points on the board.
However, the Italians are pitted against the 6-time European champions, whereas the Dutch contingent takes on the worst team of the lot – the Wolves. In fact, the Danish squad has lost all of their games so far, and have conceded the most number of goals as well as have scored the least.
As such, this is a great opportunity for Erik ten Hag’s men to secure a three-point lead over Atalanta. Count on them to do justice to this opportunity and record a convincing win at their home.
Ajax vs Midtjylland: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Lancers recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last time these two locked horns. It was the reverse fixture of this upcoming encounter, and it also happens to be the sole face-to-face fixture between these teams so far.
- Hag’s men were unbeaten in five of their previous eight fixtures against other Danish opponents.
- They have scored two or more goals in five of the preceding seven such match-ups.
- Brian Priske’e men have not yet taken on any other Dutch rival.
Ajax vs Midtjylland: Prediction
The Lancers recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against this same opponent. Going on, they are on a four-fixture winning run, and had scored a total of 30 goals from their last six games alone.
They easily have been one of the most offensively-talented teams in Europe in the past two-three years, and with the inspirational Hag at the dugouts, they really have been bringing their glory days back on the pitch.
They surely will give their 100% on the pitch this Wednesday, since it would propel them to the second spot in the table with a lead of three points (expecting that Liverpool would defeat Atalanta). (Note that Jurgen Klopp’s men had in fact had won 5-0 against the Italians in the reverse fixture).
On the other hand, the Danes had lost four of their preceding eight match-ups, and they were also winless in six of their last nine games on the road.
And finally, the Eredivisie champions also have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes.
Taking into account all these stats, expect Ajax to deliver a huge win this Wednesday.
