Midtjylland vs Ajax
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 3 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: MCH Arena (Herning).
The Champions League group stages will witness Midtjylland lock horns with the Dutch superpower Ajax in yet another fixture in the schedule. The host has averaged 3.00 unanswered goals across their first two Champions League group stage games this term. They will host after a 2-0 loss on the road to Liverpool in the previous CL clash.
Ajax is known for their stellar form outside their domestic league, especially against stronger teams in the tournament. After their opening loss to Liverpool, the Jews will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw on the road with Atalanta last time out in the Champions League.

- The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins against other Danish teams.

- The last time the Jews met a Danish side was in 2017 and defeated Copenhagen with a 2-0 scoreline.
Midtjylland vs Ajax Prediction
Midtjylland cannot produce much harm to the visitors since they have a weaker squad of the two when compared to Ajax. Besides, three of their recent four clashes across all major contests in their schedule have ended in a loss, including the past two CL fixtures this season.
The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game but will have very little use of it against the Dutch club’s attacks in the middle. Ajax has picked up four points from the two clashes in the CL fixture so far this season and has only lost to Liverpool.
Based on their overall form, the Jews are likely to create more chances in the encounter. Expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair when these two sides meet with Ajax as the favorites to win. The away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns from the clash.
