Ajax vs FC Koebenhavn Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Ajax will be looking to maximise their home advantage and to overturn a one-goal deficit when they take on FC Copenhagen for the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie. Ajax had the better ball possession the most goalscoring opportunities last Thursday, but they still suffered a 2-1 defeat. Rasmus Falk gave Copenhagen the lead in the first minute of the game, but Ajax pulled one back just after the half-hour mark through Kasper Dolberg. Ajax continued to push for the winner in the second half, but they were caught on the break as Copenhagen’s star striker Andreas Cornelius found the back of the net in the 60th minute. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Ajax are favourites to win here due to their impressive home record over the past six months, but FC Copenhagen have also enjoyed a strong run of form on the road recently. It should be goals in this one, as both teams have been involved in high-scoring affairs recently. Copenhagen have scored 12 goals in their last four games across all competitions, while Ajax netted at least two goals in four of their last five home fixtures.

Ajax Preview

After their narrow 2-1 defeat to Denmark last week, Ajax bounced back with a comfortable 3-0 home victory over FC Twente in the Eredivisie at the weekend. After his goal against Copenhagen last Thursday, Kasper Dolberg managed another brace at the weekend. The 19-year-old striker has been phenomenal throughout this 2016/17 competitive season, scoring 16 goals across all competitions. Davy Klaassen has also helped the team with twelve goals and six assists in his 25 league appearances but is yet to score in the Europa League. Due to their recent victory in the Eredivisie, Ajax are now just four points off the current leaders Feyenoord. The Amsterdammers looked very well-organised at both ends of the field throughout this Eredivisie campaign, scoring 55 goals and conceding just 16 goals in 26 league outings. On home soil, Ajax have been near impeccable as they have only lost one of their last 18 games across all competitions while winning 16 in the process. In addition, Ajax have scored at least two goals in eleven of their last 18 home competitive fixtures. Furthermore, the Amsterdammers are undefeated in ten European home fixtures this season, winning five and drawing five in this term.

FC Copenhagen Preview

On the contrary, FC Copenhagen enter the fray on the back of an eight-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning five and drawing three in the process. The Danish have won their last four competitive fixtures, scoring 12 goals and conceding just once in this term. They followed up their 2-1 win over Ajax with an easy 3-0 home victory over Esbjerg in the Superliga at the weekend. Copenhagen sit comfortable on top of the Superliga table with 61 points under their belts after 25 league outings, already 12 points clear off the second-placed Brondby. Copenhagen’s defence has been the main reason for their great performances throughout their Superliga campaign as they have one of the best defensive records in Europe, conceding just nine goals in 25 league fixtures. Away from home, Copenhagen have been impeccable over the past five months, winning nine and drawing one of their last ten away games across all competitions. Furthermore, the Danish have lost only once in seven European away fixtures this season, and have scored at least one goal in six of the these. Andreas Cornelius and Federico Santander have been Copenhagen’s most prolific players on the pitch throughout their Superliga campaign, as the pair bagged 17 goals and seven assists between them. In addition, Cornelius has helped the team with 7 goals in his 14 European appearances this season.
