Ajax vs Bayern Munich predictions and betting tips for the Champions League fixture on Wednesday 12th December with an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction included.
The Champions League Group Stages will come to an end on Wednesday night and one of the games on offer is Ajax vs Bayern Munich. Both sides have qualified from group E, but only two points separate them, meaning first place is still up for grabs. Will Ajax use their home advantage to topple Bayern and finish first, or will Bayern stand strong and go into the next round with as much momentum as possible?
Both sides are going into this game unbeaten in the group, Bayern with just one extra win over an Ajax draw, meaning the Germans top the table as it stands. Ajax need a win to finish top, Munich just need to avoid a loss. In the first match they drew 1-1 at the Allianz Arena, and I think it is going to be a similar result here too. Bayern will be happy with anything other than a loss, and with them having four games in under two weeks coming up, I can’t see them really pushing all out for the win. Ajax will be, and will most likely score, but I can’t see them having enough quality to keep the Germans out either. The first of our Ajax vs Bayern predictions is for the match to end a draw.
What are the best odds for Ajax and Bayern Munich to draw? 14/5 with Betfred.
For our anytime scorer tip we’re going to take a chance on Lewandowski starting the match and getting on the scoresheet. He has scored nine goals in the Bundesliga and six goals in the Champions League this season, and is by far the most likely scorer in this game. Lewandowski to score anytime is the second of our Ajax vs Bayern betting tips for this week’s Champions League tie. Bayern manager Niko Kovač won’t have the luxury of resting players for this because he will want to win the group, but it is always worth checking the starting line-ups before placing an anytime goalscorer bet.
What are the best odds for Lewandowski to score vs Ajax? 19/20 with Betway.
My correct score tip to complete these Ajax vs Bayern predictions is for a 1-1 draw. As much as Ajax need to win, Bayern won’t let them off easily. Despite possibly resting a couple of players or playing at half the tempo as usual, they will still manage to avoid the loss and go through as group leaders. We have seen how important topping your group in the Champions League can be so the current German Champions won’t want to risk playing the likes of Barcelona in this early stage of the competition.
What are the best odds for Ajax and Bayern Munich to draw 1-1? 13/2 with Ladbrokes.
Ajax’s odds to win the match are 11/4, the draw is 11/4 and the odds for Bayern to win are 1/1. If you want to bet on a first goalscorer then Lewandowski is the favourite at 16/5. Muller is likely to start and he’s 13/2 at betway. Both teams to score in this match is 11/20 but if you’d prefer both teams to score? NO, it is at odds of 7/5.
Ajax have had a good group stage and have qualified for the last 16 already. Manager Erik ten Hag would love nothing more than to sneak into top spot here and to do that they would need to beat Bayern Munich, with nothing to lose they might just go for it. Ajax will be without Kasper Dolberg for this match.
Bayern Munich have two long term injury casualties in James Rodriguez and Corentin Tolisso and it remains to be seen if they decide to rest any players from the starting line-up.
Draw – 14/5 with Betfred.
Lewandowski to score anytime – 19/20 with Betway.
