Chelsea vs Ajax Prediction & Match Preview

Chelsea vs Ajax
Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 5 November 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).

This particular fixture has the potential to determine how the standings in the group would turn out at the end of the first stage. Both Chelsea, and their Dutch counterparts take the mantle of the cluster with six points each, and the victor of this meeting could go out and make a pass for the tag of Group Champions.

The Eredivisie title-holders seem to be on a mission to get back to their glory days of the past, and their playing style at present is something that reminds the forgotten beauty of this sport. The former PL champions too are on a mission to get through this tough period, and club legend Frank Lampard has done a great job so far, in delivering with whatever he has been given with.

Chelsea vs Ajax Prediction

Chelsea suffered a minor setback the last day at the Stamford Bridge, as arch-rivals Manchester United defeated them in the Carabao Cup, and denied them an opportunity to take part in the Quarters. But still, the manner in which the London outfit has responded to their several obstacles has been nothing but impressive, and they will be keen to keep it going on, and especially in the European stage.

Consider that the team had defeated Erik ten Hag’s men the last day in this same competition, with a sole unanswered goal on the road. One more of that kind and the Blues could almost ensure a comparatively easier opponent in the Round of 16.

It helps that they are at home and that they have won seven of their preceding eight matches as well. Finally, we must consider the fact that the hosts of the day are part of the toughest league in the world, whereas their Dutch equivalent is not considered amongst the major ones in Europe. Also, the Lancers have lost some of their major players from the last campaign and will be on the backfoot.

As such, expect the hosts to register the three points this match-day.

However, there’s no denying the quality that the Amsterdam contingent has in the attacking third of the pitch. They have found the back of the net in 44 of their preceding 48 match-ups, and in 19 of their last 21 on the road. They have also scored the most number of goals in Group H as of now, and the chances for them to return empty-handed are very low.
