Juventus vs Ajax | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The amount of confidence Ajax has at the moment is guaranteeing a spectacular match at Allianz Stadium in Turin. Juve is the favorite, but the way the Dutch side plays is absolutely giving them the right to hope that they can advance. For the Old Lady, there isn’t any other outcome acceptable but a win. The Italians are here to win a title, and that is it. They are playing well for now and are one of the biggest contenders in the whole competition for taking the championship.
Match Preview Juventus vs Ajax
Juventus played against SPAL in the domestic championship and lost away from home. Despite leading at some point, it was 2:1 for the hosts. Meanwhile, Ajax had a shooting practice against Excelsior in a game which saw 8 goals. Six of them were netted by the hosts from Amsterdam, who definitely set their artillery before this huge road trip to Italy.
In the last 13 games at home, Juve has only one draw and 12 wins. Now, during that span, they’ve lept 9 clean sheets, which tells you how big of a deal is to score at Allianz Stadium. The recent is excellent. Five games, five wins, 13 goals scored and 2 allowed. In four of those events, the Old Lady netted two or more times. So, Allegri targeted the form for this part of the season, and at the moment it seems his job was properly done. As for the efficiency, 6 of the previous 7 events at home saw over 2.5 goals.
Everybody loves Ajax this season. They are playing nice, aggressive and open football with a lot of goals in general. Dusan Tadic and young David Neres are doing wonders, and it is no strange thing that these two are among the hottest goods on the European football market. They have one defeat and one draw in the past 12 games, but we will focus on their performances on the road. Seven wins and three losses in the latest 10 road trips outside Amsterdam, and only twice during that span we haven’t seen over 2.5 goals. High efficiency is Lancers’ trademark, as seven matches concluded with over 3.5 goals and both sides to score. It is interesting that in all seven triumphs, Ajax scored three or more goals.

Expert Betting Tip
We are still not so sure about the final outcome, and want to be straight with you 100%. Yes, Juventus is a favorite, a massive one, and they do play at home, but the odds are just too low for us for that kind of risk. Again, we are saying that it would be a huge surprise to see some other outcome than their win, but such low odds are something we don’t like. On the other hand, over 2.5 goals is our choice in this case. And not only that, but both teams to score. For us, there is no doubt that Ajax has the potential to break the lock of the hosts’ defensive line, especially because there is no Chiellini. The final word, Juventus – Ajax 2:1.
