Ajax vs Bayern München | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Two powerhouses of European football meet this Wednesday in Amsterdam to decide which one of them will progress to the next phase as the first-placed in Group E. Bayern Munich has the edge, but Ajax plays very well this season, and they would like to beat their old rival.
At the moment, the German champs have 13 points, while Ajax has 11. Both of them won confidently in the last rounds of their domestic leagues. Ajax was better than Zwolle away from home, 1-4, while Bayern defeated Nurnberg with 3-0.
Dusan Tadic and his teammates are very cruel this year. They have only one defeat, which came against PSV, and besides that 4 draws and 23 wins. Now, that is quite impressive if you ask us. From the last dozen matches, 8 ended with them keeping clean sheets, and during that span, the Lancers scored 40 goals. When looking only matches at Amsterdam Arena, in the last they allowed only two scores, netting 33 of them. In all but two contests, Ajax managed to strike three times. So, this team is in excellent shape the way we see it. The efficiency when they play is very high, as you’ve already guessed by yourself. Throughout their whole history, offensive football was the only style they knew, and it is any different today. After these 15 defeatless meetings, the morale of this team is very high, and we can expect them aggressive right from the start.
The Bavarians are coming to Amsterdam after three wins in a row. The situation is still not perfect, but these recent successes have eased the pressure on Niko Kovac, who is still unwanted among the players. The Croatian coach and the few big stars just can’t get along well. The most recent win against Nurnberg was the first in which Bayern kept clean sheets, after four in which they couldn’t do that. And it is only the third in the past 10 with the same outcome. If we check the number of games with over 2.5 goals during that span, the figure is the same, 7. In general, Bayern’s meetings are very efficient, only unlike in the previous years, Manuel Neuer’s position is much tougher, as his team concedes more.
