Ajax vs Benfica Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Ajax’s draw with Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena gives them great hope of reaching the knockout stages, as they have not lost sight of the other competitors. Yet, the doubleheader against Benfica may hold more value. Even though Benfica have won the last two away games in the Champions League, this has not always been the Portuguese club’s forte – Benfica had managed four away wins in this competition in the previous five years. Ajax have been in outstanding form and they have been able to claim some big wins of late. I would pick a victory for Ajax.

Ajax have been in excellent scoring form this season. The form of players like Dusan Tadic and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar make them a strong opponent in the match. Benfica also have sufficient attacking threat in their line-up and the club came in with goals in each of the away games in the Champions League this season. I would back both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in total.

Ajax win – 19/20

Total goals over 2.5 and both teams to score – 6/5

Ajax scored over 2.5 goals in 6 out of their last 10 games played

Ajax have conceeded only 4 goals in their last 4 games against Benfica

Benfica saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played
