Real Madrid vs Ajax Amsterdam | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
After suffering a loss in two El Clasico’s, Real will try to bounce back with a win against Ajax and an advantage to the next stage of the Champions League. The Los Blancos have a nice result and a home ground advantage on their side, which should be enough against the Dutch powerhouse. But the Lancers are not coming to Madrid with a white flag. They are aware of the situation and the fact that the reigning European champions are in a difficult position. If they want to create a surprise, the current moment is the best possible one.
The hosts lost this Saturday at home to Barca, again. It is a huge blow for them to lose two times in the span of just a few days against the fiercest enemy, and the morale is not very good at the moment. Ajax avenged their trashing against Feyenoord and smashed the big rival on the road, 0-3, indicating that their for is going up.
If Vinicius Junior had a little bit more finishing skills, we would be talking about excellent Real and his wins over Blaugrana. The Brazilian teenager missed at least 6 good chances in both El Clasico’s, and was the main reason why his team didn’t score and provide a better result. But his age is something which needs to be taken into consideration. Real kept his net intact only once in the previous 10 matches, and that clearly indicates problems with the back line. Also, eight games during that span went above 2.5 goals. What is unbelievable is the fact that the Madridians have three straight losses at home. That is something which hasn’t seen in a while. In the previous two, they didn’t score.
The way Erik ten Hag’s boys played against Feyenoord suggests that they have what it takes to make good results away from home this season. The Lancers were smart, swift and above all, very productive. They haven’t allowed the big rival to have one chance in this event, let alone make a threat about the outcome. Hakim Ziyech stepped up and provided several assists, and the claim that he is, in fact, Ajax’s main player stands correct after this. When Ziyech plays good, his team usually posts victories. Ajax plays offensive football, and only one game in the past 11 ended with fewer than three goals. So far during this campaign, they haven’t lost in the Champions League, recording four draws and a win, including the qualifications.

Real might face some adversities in this one. Sergio Ramos will miss the match because of a suspension, and the already vulnerable defensive line will be even more exposed. Apart from that, only Marcos Llorente isn’t available. Lisandro Magallan is ready to play for the guests, while Carel Eiting is still injured.
Real’s win at Amsterdam Arena is the seventh straight against this opponent, in the past nine years. Also, it was seventh in a row with over 2.5 goals. Overall in history, Real has the edge over Ajax with 8 wins, four losses and one draw.
Odds and Predictions

Real Madrid vs Ajax Amsterdam | Top Betting Tip: Real Madrid (3-1)
Goals are almost certain in this one. Over 2.5 scores is not very profitable, but it is the best of the day. Now if you want to increase that, try with Real scores in both halves, because we really believe that all the misses against Barcelona have to come back at some point, and with Ajax’s sloppy defense, the situation is perfect. For braver ones, over 1.5 goals in the first HT are also to be tried. As for the final outcome, Real’s win shouldn’t be questioned, despite recent defeats. They are still playing at home, and have much better players than the Dutch team. So, the final prediction Real Madrid – Ajax 3:1.
