Chelsea vs Ajax Betting Tips and Predictions
Frank Lampard’s Chelsea welcome Erik ten Hag’s Ajax to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night for their Champions League Group H clash. Both teams are on six points going into the match, but should either side lose here, Valencia will probably overtake them if they beat Lille. Can Lampard’s side repeat history and beat Ajax again or will the Dutch side prevail, read on to find out where the value lies in this fascinating Champions League clash.
Chelsea vs Ajax Betting Tips and Predictions: Chelsea
Chelsea are on a great run of form, coming into this match, they’ve won eight out of their nine previous fixtures in all competitions, scoring a whopping 24 goals, they’ve conceded 10 over those nine matches. And here is the flaw in Lampard’s side, while they can certainly get forward and score plenty of goals they have been somewhat naive at the back, showing their inexperience. Last time out against Ajax they were very lucky not to concede and Ajax will have to take the game to Chelsea here.
In team news, N’golo Kante could finally make his return for the Blues here, however he may just make the bench as he’ll surely be called up at the weekend when Jorginho is suspended for the match against Crystal Palace. Ross Barkley and Andreas Christensen could also feature after injuries.
Chelsea vs Ajax Betting Tips and Predictions: Ajax
Ajax’s form of late is even better than Chelsea’s, they’ve won 15 or their last 21 and have only lost one of them, the reverse fixture against Chelsea at home. They’ve have felt hard done by in the last match and were it not for some wasteful finishing they could have at least come away with a draw, however Chelsea weathered the storm and came out victorious.
With Valencia taking on Lille at the same time both teams will be eager to get the win here for fear of Valencia overtaking them should they win at home to the French side. Ajax aren’t a side who like to allow teams to come at them, they prefer to take the game to opposing teams and with Chelsea’s defence being somewhat inexperienced they’ll be confident of making it a tough night for the home side.
In team news, Edson Alvarez and Donny van de Beek should return to the starting XI giving the Dutch side some added firepower.
