The Rangers and Ajax come into this game with a Group A UEFA Champions League soccer showdown at Ibrox Stadium.

When these two teams faced off on September 7th, it was Ajax that secured the 4-0 victory. It was a very dominant victory for Ajax. They had 76 percent of the possession and nine shots on target. For the Rangers they only had 24 percent of the possession and one shot on target. 

Ajax comes into this game sitting 3rd place in the group having picked up three points. Last Wednesday, Ajax faced off against Liverpool, and they were defeated 3-0. Ajax had 49 percent of the possession and only two shots on target. Ajax is very healthy coming into this game, and they will be without Ahmetcan Kaplan. In this game, Ajax needs to put the pressure on early with their offense, and push the numbers forward. If they can score a couple of goals, they will be in great shape. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rangers, who sit in 4th place in the group, having picked up zero points. Last Wednesday, the Rangers faced off against Napoli, and they were defeated 3-0. The Rangers had 35 percent of the possession and only one shot on target. On Saturday, they faced off against Aberdeen, and they were defeated 4-1. They scored two goals in each of the halves. The Rangers had 13 shots on target and 71 percent of the possession. Kemar Roofe, Glen Kamara, Ryan Jack, Connor Goldson, John Souttar, Tom Lawrence, Filip Helander and Nnamdi Ofoborh are all still dealing with injuries, and they aren’t going to be able to play in this game. 

Ajax is not only the better team, they are the much healthier team and should really have no issue getting the job done in this game. Look for Ajax to score three or four goals and this is going to be an easy victory. Back Ajax -1.5 to cash here.
