Ajax vs Standard Liege Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 14th August 2018
Ajax vs Standard Liege – UEFA Champions League :The Dutch of Ajax intend, on the current season, to recover the title of Dutch champions.
Which didn’t happen for the last 2 years, because they’ve lost to Feyenoord and PSV, respectively.
Ajax is an enormous club and with a lot of power in the Netherlands, and a lot of history as well.
The roster has suffered some changes, but they’ve kept some other important players and the roster itself is very interesting.
Ajax has already played on the previous round of this qualification stage for the Champions League and they have beaten Sturm Graz by 2-0 at home and 3-1 away from home, on a knockout tie without a lot of history, with the Dutch being very superior.
On the 1st leg of this tie, they started off strong and went into half-time winning by 2-0, but then they’ve lost that advantage and conceded the draw in injury time.
Also in the league, they’ve gotten off to a poor start and ended up drawing with Heracles by 1-1. This is a very important encounter for
Ajax that really values the European competitions.
Standard de Liége: I don’t consider this team being the great contender to win the Belgian league, since Anderlecht, Club Brugge and even Genk are on a superior level, but this Standard de Liége also intends to be included on that fight.
The roster is reasonable, but they lack something in my opinion.
After 3 rounds in the league, they have 5 poitns.
They only have 1 victory and have 2 0-0 draws. In the Champions League, they haven’t played on these qualification stages for 4 years and very honestly, they should drop to the Europa League.
On the 1st leg, they’ve gotten off to a very bad start and went into half-time 0-2 down and the knockout tie was practically sentenced there.
Things have improved in the 2nd half and they still salvaged the draw right at the end, which means everything is still wide open.
Ajax vs Standard Liege – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Ajax is a much stronger team, with a roster with more solutions and although they have too many youngsters, a lot of them are already showing their good maturity and have conditions to stand out in international football.
Here, I believe that the Dutch won’t compromise the tie. I see Ajax being very superior to this Standard de Liége, although the 0-0 or 1-1 draw are enough for them, I believe that they will get the victory here without any major problems.
Ajax at home always plays with a packed stadium, great atmospheres, and on this encounter, that scenario will surely repeat itself.
Basically, I expect a more dominant Ajax, controlling the encounter and managing to get an important victory that will grant them qualification onto the next round.
