Ajax vs Standard Liege
UEFA Champions League Qualifier Third Round 2nd Leg
Date: Tuesday, 14 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Johan Cruyff Arena (Amsterdam).

Despite conceding two goals in the last 25 minutes and a last-minute penalty kick equalizer at Standard Liege last week, Ajax could still be happy with a 2-2 draw in the first leg as they host the Belgian rivals for the second leg on Tuesday evening – looking to make it count and make their way to the Play-offs.

De Godenzonen have lacked consistency but they’ve kept scoring goals despite struggles through their pre-season, coming into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Heracles with a somewhat rotated line-up. Erik ten Hag’s men will now hope to keep it up and show their worth in the attacking third once again.

Standard Liege, on the other hand, saw three draws in a row now behind them and they’ve also found it hard to pick it up after a similarly underwhelming pre-season, which will be worrying ahead of the trip to Johan Cruyff Arena. They’ve been solid at the back on their trips but it is rather questionable if this will be enough to make their way to the next round.

Ajax vs Standard Liege: Head-to-head

  • The sides have last met in 2016, where Ajax bagged four points in two Europa League Group clashes.
  • Ajax have earned a 1-0 home win in September 2016, with a single goal from Kasper Dolberg.
  • Liege are yet to beat the Netherlands rivals.

Ajax vs Standard Liege: Prediction

We now hope for another narrow clash between the sides and we’ll back Ajax to win to Nil at an eye-catching 2.37. We expect more of a defensive approach on both ends and we do feel this will result in few goals this time around.

With that in mind, we’ll also back Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.35, which also feels like it could be overpriced. We’ve seen Standard Liege regularly putting on tough defensive displays on the road, with few goals on either end, and this promises a lot for the bet as well!

Ajax vs Standard Liege: Bet Tips

Ajax to win to Nil @ 7/5 (2.40)

Under 2.5 goals FT @ 3/2 (2.50).
