Ajax vs Real Madrid prediction
UEFA Champions League
Ajax vs Real Madrid
Ajax are going into this match as clear underdogs in my opinion. They played really good in the group stage where they faced Bayern, Benfica & AEK. But right now they are coming from some weird and disappointing results, they lost 1-0 vs Heraces last time out, after crushing VVV Venlo 6-0. They have conceded a lot of goals after Christmas, and I think they will do that tonight as well. Tagliafico & De Jong both reported doubtful.
Real Madrid are actually in the opposite situation. They had a hard start of this season, but are impressing at the moment. They are coming from winning 1-3 vs Atletico Madrid in the league. They also managed 1-1 away vs Barcelona in Copa del Rey before that. Varane & Isco reported doubtful.
* Real Madrid are normally crushing Ajax without problems. Last 6 meetings: 0-0-6
I expect Real Madrid to win this so they can go into the home match without any pressure. They are experts in these kind of matches and are also in great shape. Ajax doesn’t have much to lose, and will for sure take risks in attack here. They have also conceded a lot of goals lately, so chances for the guests will for sure come. Real Madrid should be capable of winning this match without problems imo.
