Lille vs Ajax
Judi Bola, Mpobos.com – Lille will host Ajax in a game from Group H in CL.
Three teams are with equal points in this group-Ajax, Chelsea and Valencia(7 points), while Lille is with just 1 point secured against Valencia at home. Lille is not ready to play in CL, that’s my opinion. Thye have a team good enough for EL, but not to achieve something big in CL. They had a little bit of luck in the draw to be in such a group where Chelsea has a new manager and try to play with more youngsters in the team, while Valencia doesn’t shine at all(10th place in La Liga). Only Ajax achieved something big during the last season with the SF in CL. So, it looked like Lille can do something in this group and take a few points, but I doubt they will finish with more than 1 or 2 at the end.
Ajax is in top form being 1st in Eredivisie without a single loss so far, while in CL, they performed very good. They started with two wins- 3:0 against Lille at home and Valencia as visitors, but against Chelsea, they took only a point, which was a little bit undeserved. They made a crazy match in London having 1:4 lead, but two red cards led to the 4:4 draw. They can score a lot as visitors and proved it after 0:3 and 4:4 in both away games.
A few defenders are out in both clubs- Lille will miss Jose Fonte, Adama Soumaoro and Saad Agouzoul +Timothy Weah(FW), while the visitors are without the suspended defenders Veltman and Blind+ David Neres(FW).
What I expect here is another huge performance in attack by Ajax. They have more quality in the team and are also in better current form. Lille relies too much on Osimhen during this season which is not bad, but Ajax has much more to offer in attack. We will see what will happen tonight, but even if Lille finds the back of the net of the visitors, Ajax can outscore them for sure. Just have to play the way they can and I am sure they will take the max points in a very important game for them if they want to progress in the tournament.
Pick : Ajax to win & Over 2.5
