Ajax vs Juventus Prediction & Betting tips
It was one of the great moments of shock, one of the moments when football suddenly took a back seat – when the news of Sami Khedira’s heart problems became public. Although the club was quick to reassure them that they did not have to worry about the 2014 world champion, it was clear that Khedira could not avoid a heart surgery. At the weekend there was the successful and acclaimed return of the midfield strategist in Serie A in the game against AC Milan. On the one hand, the player’s suffering time itself seems to have come to an end, and on the other hand, the personal worries of Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri have eased a bit before the Champions League first leg at Ajax Amsterdam.
The old lady currently has some injury problems and next to the ailing Emre Can and Cristiano Ronaldo, where the use is still questionable fall with Costa, Cuadrado or Barzagli some well-known players from secure. Under these circumstances, it is a little surprising that between Ajax Amsterdam and Juventus Turin, the odds for a bet on the outcome of the game are fairly unilaterally distributed in favor of guests from Italy. Will the Dutch be underestimated as they were against Real Madrid? This question has to be answered with an exact analysis of the match in order to be able to make a well-founded forecast between Ajax Amsterdam and Juventus. The kick-off will be on Wednesday evening at 20:00.
Erik ten Hag is the name of the father of Ajax Amsterdam’s success, who let fans dream of successes in the club’s glorious past. The 49-year-old football instructor has managed to put together a squad with numerous young and talented footballers, a successful and well-functioning team, which has set a huge exclamation point by progressing in the second round. The 4: 1 in the Estadio Bernabeu was a gala performance of his team, which eliminated the three-time series winner of the competition and thus simultaneously ended an era. The Kanter victory in the Spanish capital was particularly convincing in the way. Every single one of the eleven players knew how to convince. Above all, the offensive players such as David Neres, Hakim Ziyech and Dusan Tadic must be called. Each scored a goal, with the latter in particular, probably the best game of his life showed.
Lasse Schöne pulls the strings in midfield and is supported by 21-year-old youngsters Donny van de Beek and Frenkie de Jong. The mix is just right for the Dutch in this season. In the league in the past few weeks, victories were also celebrated on the assembly line and conquered the championship lead. PSV Eindhoven, however, is tightly tied to the capital club. At the weekend the team of ten Hag was able to protect a few forces early in the duel against Willem. The 4-1 away win was never really in danger. The goal to 4: 0 scored attacker Ziyech in the 70th minute. This goal was the 100th goal scored by Ajax this season in the Eredivise. The quality is undisputed and by the achievements in the premier class, the team has already proven to be able to keep up with international competition. Ajax Amsterdam will not hide at home against Juventus despite higher odds and outsider role and act courageously or self-confidently.
Juventus have made another step towards the championship title with their 2-1 win against AC Milan on Saturday. Italy’s runner-up is 20 points ahead of SSC Napoli seven days before the end of the season, and is likely to make the defense of the title clear at SPAL next round. The big goal in the remaining season is then clearly the Champions League. There should be the title at best. With the commitment of five-time world footballer Cristiano Ronaldo Juve has filed his claims before the season. In the round of sixteen, the Portuguese has proved his worth, as he almost single-handedly turned the 0-2 from the first leg at Atletico Madrid with a three-pack. The more bitter is the fact that Ronaldo last injury was missing the old lady.
According to his coach Allegri, CR7 wanted to play against Milan at the weekend, but the coach decided to take the precautionary measure. This strongly indicates that Ronaldo will be starting in Amsterdam on Wednesday. With Dybala and Mandzukic the spectacular threesome assault series of Turin would be complete again. All personal worries would not be resolved with it. Barzagli is missing in the defense, Costa and Cuadrado on the outside. The use of Emre Can is still hanging by a thread and 90 minutes are a Sami Khedira after his heart surgery also untrustworthy. But the fact that Ronaldo is back on board is sufficient to favor Juve in the Dutch capital. Between Ajax Amsterdam and Juventus Turin a prognosis is therefore more in the direction of the guests.
