Ajax vs Chelsea prediction and betting tips for 23/10/19 Champions League fixture at 8:00 pm. Despite Chelsea’s good form, Ajax are favourites for this clash and understandably so.
Both these sides come into the match off the back of five straight wins in all competitions but it’s the Dutch side who are the bookies favourites to get the three points tonight. This group looks set to be one of the most competative with Valencia also in there, so this is a vital match for both sides.
Ajax are unbeaten in the Eredivisie with eight wins and two draws in ten. They have averaged over three goals a game and conceded fewer than one a game. In Europe they have won both their opening games 3-0 against Lille and Valencia.
Chelsea are in great form domestically. The Blues are up to fourth in the league after three straight wins. After a poor start defensively, Chelsea have now kept two clean sheets in their last three and conceded just once in that time. A win and a loss in Europe, leaves them in third place going into this game.
Tammy Abraham opened his Champions League scoring account last time out with a goal against Lille. He is Chelsea’s top goalscorer this season and leads the Premier League scoring charts. The Blues’ new no.9 has adapted seamlessly to life at the top level and is a good bet to score. Abraham to score is 6/5.
Quincy Promes has made an excellent start to life at Ajax. He is level with Dusan Tadic, joint second in the league with six goals. In the Champions League he has scored in each of Ajax’s two games and is a constant threat coming in off the wing. Promes to score is priced at 11/5.
With both sides in great form it’s hard to separate these two sides. For once, Ajax are likely to be the more experienced side, certainly in European competition. Their home advantage may also play a part but we’re backing Chelsea to secure a valuable point in Amsterdam. A 2-2 draw is priced at 10/1.
