Ajax vs Real Madrid
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 13 February 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam.
Real Madrid have been in great shape and extended a seven-game unbeaten streak despite a tough schedule, travelling to Amsterdam for their Champions League clash at Ajax hoping they can keep it up – boasting a furious goalscoring streak and now looking for an advantage at Johan Cruijff Arena already.
Los Blancos have held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in Copa del Rey and beat Atletico Madrid in La Liga on their last two trips with goals coming from all directions, building on a streak of five consecutive wins seen beforehand. Solari should now have an easy task to keep their spirits high and we expect the visitors very motivated once again!
Ajax have shown off as very tough rivals to beat and we’ve seen them bag three wins and three draws in six Group E outings, finishing just two points behind Bayern. They’ve shown character and now have a lot to build on but Erik ten Hag’s men are in for a very tough challenge in a home contest which could already untangle it, as they boast no great consistency of recent.
Ajax vs Real Madrid: Head-to-head
The sides have met six times since 2010 and Real Madrid have bagged wins on all of those occasions.
Los Blancos earned two thrashing wins in the sides’ 2012 Champions League clashes (4-1 and 1-4).
Ajax have great home records this term and could largely depend on a solid first-leg performance here!
Ajax vs Real Madrid: Prediction
Still, we don’t feel De Godenzonen have what it takes to hold off the in-form visitors and we’ll now back Real Madrid to earn an advantage here, as we go for an Away win at 1.90! We’ve seen them snatch such records at great rivals recently and feel Los Blancos will have what it takes here too.
Ajax have struggled to keep up their high team spirits but we have seen them scoring numbers of goals at home ground, which promises a great challenge. With that in mind, the visitors could have to outgun them to secure the points as we also go for a YES on Both teams to score at 1.50.
