Ajax vs Legia Warszawa Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Ajax welcome Legia at the Amsterdam ArenA on Thursday evening for the second leg of their Europa League round of 32 tie with nothing between these two sides after a goalless draw in Poland. Ajax had an overwhelming 61% ball possession, 15 goalscoring opportunities and even a denied goal. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Ajax have been impeccable in front of their own fans over the past five months, having won 13 and draw one of their last 14 home fixtures across all competitions. On the flip side, Legia have only won once in their last four away trips and scored just two goals in the process. I’m backing Ajax to secure a victory in this one, but I’m also expecting a high-scoring affair.

Ajax Preview

Ajax have enjoyed an impressive run of form in this early part of the new year, having won six and draw one of their seven games across all competitions after the winter break. The Amsterdammers have won all of their six games in the Eredivisie after the winter break, conceding just once in the process. They find themselves in second position in the Eredivisie table with 55 points after 23 rounds, just five points off the current leaders Feyenoord. Their solid defence has been the main reason for Ajax’s performances throughout their Eredivisie campaign, having conceded just 14 goals in 23 league outings. Regarding their Europa League campaign this season, the Amsterdammers advanced throughout the group stage undefeated, winning four and drawing two of their six group appearances. Furthermore, Ajax are unbeaten in nine European home fixtures this season, including wins in the most recent three. Overall, Ajax are undefeated in their last 13 home fixtures across all competitions, winning twelve and drawing once in the process. Head-to-head, the Amsterdammers are unbeaten in their three meetings with Legia in the Europa League, keeping a clean sheet in each of these. Davy Klaassen and Kasper Dolberg have been Ajax’s most dangerous players in front of goal throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as the pair bagged 21 goals and 10 assists between them.

Legia Preview

Although they were lucky to hold Ajax to a nil-nil home draw last week, Legia succumbed to a 1-3 home defeat at the hands of Ruch in the Ekstraklasa at the weekend. This leaves Legia only in third spot in the league table tied on 38 points with the 4th-placed Lech Poznan, already five points off the current leaders Lechia Gdansk. The good news is that Legia have been scoring goals for fun throughout this Ekstraklasa campaign, as they are the division’s topscorers with 45 goals in 22 league fixtures. Nemanja Nikolics has enjoyed an impressive Ekstraklasa campaign this season, as he is leading the league’s goalscoring charts with 13 goals in his 19 league appearances. Regarding their European adventure this season, Legia have won just one of their last eight continental games, which was a 1-0 triumph against Sporting Lisbon on Champions League matchday six. On the road, the Polish side also lost all of their Champions League trips by at least two goals. Their recent away form has been a complete mixed bag with three defeats, five wins and two draws in their last ten away games across all competitions. Legia haven’t triumphed in a springtime European tie since 1990/91, and they were knocked out from the Europa League round of 32 by Ajax last season.
