Champions League at Bet Victor

The 1st legs of the 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League commence on Tuesday night and our next featured match is a clash between Greek side, PAOK, taking on Dutch outfit, Ajax, as the betting tips continue at the Stadio Toumbas.

PAOK Prediction – Can PAOK continue pre-season form?

After finishing last season in triumphant style, winning not only the Super League title but also claiming the cup as well, PAOK will be in confident mood.

An encouraging pre-season also saw PAOK win 5 of their 7 warm-up matches which includes winning their last 4 matches on the trot.

Wins over Universitatea Cluj, Sint-Truiden, Anderlecht and Fortuna Sittard will be a timely boost ahead of their 1st leg in this 3rd qualifying round.

In addition, results at home have seen PAOK win 11 of their last 12 matches on home turf at their Stadio Toumbas, so they have plenty of momentum behind them.

However, when you switch over to results at home in the Champions League, this tells us a very different story.

The hosts have managed to record just 2 wins out of their 8 home ties played to date in this competition, which were wins against Basel and Spartak Moscow.

5 defeats within this fragile 8-match sequence also shows a level of vulnerability where PAOK are concerned, along with conceding goals on a regular basis.

PAOK have conceded 2 goals or more in 7 of these 8 home ties as well as having a recent losing record to Ajax – losing 4-2 and 2-1 in their last two encounters against their Dutch opponents.

Ajax Prediction – Can Ajax build on promising start?

Following just 1 defeat out of their 7 pre-season matches, as well as making an unbeaten start to their domestic competitive matches, Ajax will also be in confident mood here.

A 2-1 loss at home to Panathinaikos was their only lowlight in what was a successful pre-season for the Dutch club as they prepared for the campaign ahead.

Ajax have also made a good start to competitive matches on the domestic front as they secured a 2-0 win over PSV in the Dutch Super Cup.

The visitors backed that cup win with a point on the road on the opening day of the Eredivisie season with a 2-2 draw at Vitesse.

Overall away form has seen Ajax unbeaten in their last 9 matches in all competitions, which includes 8 wins during this impressive period.

This excellent record on the road is continued and extended in the Champions League too as they’re unbeaten in their last 10 matches on the road.

Within this 10-match unbeaten run was last season’s impressive results gained at Real Madrid 4-1, Juventus 2-1 and Tottenham 1-0.

Last season’s semi-finalists will be expecting to at least make it through to the group stages of the Champions League again this season.

 

Key-Facts – PAOK v Ajax

  • PAOK have managed to record just 2 wins out of their 8 home ties
  • PAOK have conceded 2 goals or more in 7 of these 8 home ties as well
  • Ajax are unbeaten in their last 10 away ties in the Champions League

 

Betting Tips Verdict

PAOK have impressed at home but will face a tough task in getting ahead against this excellent Ajax outfit.
