Football – Europe – Champions League Betting Tips

It’s match day 3 in the Champions League this week and starting on Tuesday night we have a Group E match between Ajax and Benfica as the betting tips continue in this elite European competition.

Ajax have made a solid start to their Champions League group campaign with a convincing 3-0 home win over Greek outfit, AEK Athens along with a solid point away at German champions, Bayern Munich in a 1-1 draw.

On Tuesday night they’ll play host to Portuguese club, Benfica, and will no doubt fancy their chances of grabbing all three points on the back of a promising run of form which has seen Ajax put together a five-match unbeaten sequence in all competitions. They come into this clash having registered a crushing 4-0 win away at Heerenveen in the domestic Eredivisie while they’re unbeaten in their last 10 at Champions League level.

Potential anytime goalscorers for the hosts include midfielder Ziyech (5 goals) and forwards Tadic and Huntelaar (6 goals apiece).

Onto Benfica, and the Portuguese club also come into this encounter on the back of inflicting a heavy 3-0 defeat away from home at Sertanense in the Taca de Portugal, but they sit in third spot in this Champions League Group E following an opening 2-0 loss at home to Bayern Munich, but securing a 3-2 win away at AEK Athens on match day two.

Although Benfica have recorded recent back-to-back wins away from home in the Champions League with victories at PAOK 4-1 and the aforementioned 3-2 win at AEK Athens, they’d

previously went six away matches without a win at this level.

Indeed, just one win from their previous nine on their travels suggests that this could be a tough encounter for Benfica in Amsterdam on Tuesday night.

My betting tips advise backing Ajax with the draw no bet option though as Benfica could hold out for a draw.
