Ajax vs. Chelsea: High-flying Ajax to continue fine European form?

Published

on

Wednesday evening’s earlier kick-off sees further Champions League action take place as Frank Lampard takes his Chelsea side to high-flyers Ajax, who sit top of Group H with two wins from two.

The Dutch outfit are 13/10 to make it three from three, with the away side 2/1 to pick up all three points.

Chelsea have a win and a loss to their name so far in their return to Europe’s top competition after losing at home to Valencia and beating Lille in France. A draw between arguably the two favourites to progress to the knockout stages from this group is available at 5/2.

Ajax are undoubtedly still on cloud nine after their young guns set the tournament alight last season, beating Real Madrid and Juventus before falling in the semi-final against Spurs in dramatic circumstances.

Having edged past both PAOK and Apoel Nicosia in the third qualifying round and play-off rounds respectively, it’s been smooth sailing since then.

Chelsea will face a tough ask at a young Ajax side tonight

They have, of course, lost the stunning talents of Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, but seemingly haven’t been affected by their exits, winning both group games this season 3-0.

They are currently 22/1 to beat Chelsea by the same scoreline, and are 11/4 to keep a clean sheet at the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Netherlands forward Quincy Promes has scored in both of Ajax’s games so far, and he’s 21/10 To score anytime against Lampard’s side. The highly-rated Donny van de Beek also found the net in the win away to Valencia, and he’s 10/3 to score anytime against the Blues.

The visitors meanwhile recovered from their early defeat at home to Valencia to pick up three points at Lille. Tammy Abraham scored the opener in that away win, and the English striker is 9/2 to do that again in Amsterdam.

Young England midfielder Mason Mount has also been on fire in front of goal for Chelsea this season. The 20-year-old midfielder is 8/1 to open the scoring on the night, and 9/4 to score anytime throughout the 90 minutes.

Much like the win over Lille, Lampard’s men are 10/1 to record another 2-1 victory on the road, and are 12/5 to once again score in both halves.

The Blues have, however, conceded a goal in each of their previous two games in the competition, and they are 7/4 to concede another one against Ajax.
