In the 2019 UEFA Champions League, Ajax will host Chelsea at the Amsterdam Arena.
Ajax have had an outstanding start to their Champions League campaign having won both games. Ajax are top of the group with 6 points. Ajax played a domestic league match over the weekend where they won 2-1 away from home. It was a solid win for Ajax as they controlled 63% of the possession and had 19 shots. Dusan Tadic and Quincy Promes both scored goals for Ajax. Ajax have had a good start to the season as they are 3 points clear at the top of both their domestic league and their Champions League group.
On the other side of the coin, Chelsea have managed to turn things around in recent weeks as the team is beginning to find wins. The likes of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham are showing great ability and the team is playing well. Chelsea currently have a 1-0-1 record in the Champions League and are third in the group with 3 points. Chelsea played against Newcastle United in the Premier League in a match the team won 1-0. It was a good performance by the Blues as they controlled 72% of the ball and had 16 shots. Marcus Alonso scored the winning goal in the 73rd minute. Chelsea are 4th in the Premier League and the team will be optimistic about having a strong season with a very exciting squad.
Chelsea have managed to impress many critics this season but I don’t see them having enough to win this match away from home. Ajax are in outstanding touch and the team seems to be unbeatable at home. Ajax are playing with lots of confidence and I see them having too much strength for an inexperienced Chelsea outfit. Both teams are blessed with goals so the over 2.5 goals seems like a good wager.
