Ajax News and Form – Can Ajax hold out at home against Valencia?

A draw is enough for Ajax on the night to make it past the group stage. Or if Chelsea don’t beat Lille on the night, that would suit the Dutch giants. Back on Matchday 2, Ajax thumped Valencia 3-0 in a convincing performance out in Spain. On Matchday 5 Ajax picked up a 2-0 win at Lille to leave themselves in this good position. It is a W3 D1 L1 record that they have taken in the group, all the dropped points having happened against Chelsea.

3/1

Moplay

Last season they only lost two of 18 European matches, so pile on the one defeat only from 9 games played this season (they started in the third qualifying round) then they have built some impressive standing. They have only failed to score in one of their last 21 European fixtures and given they have scored at least three goals on three different occasions in this group stage campaign, they are likely to get themselves on the board. They have, however, lost six of their last eight home games against Spanish teams (W2). Including the Matchday 2 win at Valencia, Ajax have only won four of their last 17 fixtures against Spanish opponents (D1 L12).

Valencia News and Form – Can Valencia win in Amsterdam??

The Spaniards are unbeaten away from home in the group. They opened with a great 1-0 win at Chelsea before playing out a 1-1 draw at Lille. They conceded very late in the game in France, so were very close to the finish line. On Matchday 5 Valencia picked up a point in a superbly competitive 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. Their win incidentally, at Stamford Bridge on Matchday One, is the only away win in Europe that Valencia have taken in their last seven (D3 L3). So that is a little bit of a shaky record.

They are W4 D3 L3 in their last eleven European away games, so it’s recently that they have struggled. There has only been a total of three goals produced by Valencia in their last seven Champions League road games. So that makes it hard to see them go toe-to-toe with Ajax. In none of their last 11 away games in the Champions League have Valencia scored more than one goal in a match. Their record against Dutch sides is good though, having lost only two of their last 13, home and away (W5 D6).

Ajax vs Valencia Predictions

Ajax to win: This should be an exciting climax but at the end of the day home advantage may swing it. Ajax are not an easy side to topple in Amsterdam and the goals have yet to flow from the Spaniards on the road in the group. Home win.
