Ajax vs FC Emmen Prediction & Betting tips
Ajax impressed Dinamo Kiev and is therefore half legged in the Champions League. FC Emmen visits Amsterdam prior to the return in Kiev.
The last hurdle of Ajax towards the group stage of the Champions League appeared after the elimination of Sturm Graz and Standard Liege from Ukraine. The number two of the Ukrainian league last year, Dinamo Kiev, has to be defeated in two games to actually reach the prestigious main event. In Amsterdam, Ajax already took a step in the right direction last Wednesday.
Kiev was beaten 3-1 and Ajax was almost the entire game the parent. Weak defending from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was the reason for the only Ukrainian goal. For the rest it was actually one-way traffic. However, Ajax was not too sure in the back when Kiev rushed forward. A non-sharp visor and strong goalkeeping by André Onana, however, ensured that no more goals scored.
Against Emmen shooters will probably be held on the bench, as Kasper Dolberg’s injury does not result in a serious second striker. Kaj Sierhuis seems to have been found to be too light by Erik ten Hag and so the 35-year-old attacker is most likely spared for the return in Kiev.
After the spectacular and unexpected win of ADO Den Haag, FC Emmen had to take the first setback of the season in his own home against AZ. There was no chance with 1-4 lost and with this the profit on ADO seems to be an incident rather than something that we will see much more often from Emmen.
Emmen came back early on De Oude Meerdijk early on. From close by, the ball was worked behind goalkeeper Kjell Scherpen. Not much later, however, the red-whites were again right out of a corner. However, Emmen could not hold on to the 1-1 and before halftime AZ secured the victory safely by 1-3. In the second half it remained relatively quiet from both sides, although AZ still scored the 1-4 in the 70th minute.
Dick Lukkien can probably call on Stephen Warmolts against Ajax. The defender with a past at FC Emmen has been taken over free from Helmond Sport and has signed a contract for one year.
