In the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, Sporting Lisbon and Ajax go head-to-head at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon. Besiktas and Borussia Dortmund, who meet in Turkey on Wednesday, are also in Group C. On paper, these two teams seem pretty evenly matched, though the Dutch side head to Portugal as the slight favourites with the bookies. For the latest odds and tips, check out our in-depth Sporting vs Ajax betting preview.

Sporting Lisbon Preview – Can the Green and Whites make home advantage count?

Sporting Lisbon picked up their 19th league title last season, finishing five points clear of Porto at the top. It was a memorable season for the club from Lisbon, who had not won the Portuguese league since the 2001-02 campaign.

Sporting’s reward for winning the Primeira Liga was direct qualification to the group stage of the Champions League. From now until December, Lisbon will play Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and Besiktas home and away.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1805 GMT, Tuesday 14 September)

Ruben Amorim’s men have made a positive start to their campaign, winning three and drawing two of their opening five in the league. Back in July, the Green and Whites started their season with a win over Braga in the Portuguese Super Cup. Will their unbeaten start continue with a positive result in Europe on Wednesday?

Ajax Preview – Dutch champions to leave Lisbon with all three points?

Erik ten Hag’s Ajax were the top dogs in Holland yet again last season. The Dutch giants were beaten just twice and finished a whopping 16 points clear of runners-up PSV Eindhoven. It was the club’s 35th national title.

Ajax were shocked by PSV in the 2021 Dutch Super Cup, crashing to a heavy 4-0 defeat in early August. However, Ten Hag’s troops have bounced back with three wins and a draw from their opening four Eredivisie matches. Last time out, Ajax beat PEC Zwolle 2-0 away from home.

No games in the Champions League group stage are easy, and Sporting will be formidable opponents for the champions of Holland. However, Ten Hag’s side are the favourites, with the bookies pricing the away win at 11/8.

Sporting dropped points at home in the league to title rivals Porto last weekend, but the Portuguese champions are generally excellent on their own patch. Last season, only LASK Linz – in a UEFA Europa League game in October – won at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.
