Ajax vs Chelsea Betting Tips, Free Bets & Betting Sites

An open contest is expected when Ajax host Chelsea in a UEFA Champions League fixture at the Johann Cryuff Arena. Both teams have plenty of quality in attack and have shown that they have goals in them, this one is almost certain to produce plenty of goalmouth action.

Ajax Form

Ajax earned a 3-0 victory at Valencia last time out in the Champions League. Hakim Ziyech and Quincy Promes gave them a two-goal lead while Donny Van de Beek added the third after the break.

Erik Ten Hag’s men have a 100% record in the Champions League and head into Wednesday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 win at RKC Waalwijk in the Eredivisie. 

They have won nine of their last 10 matches which has them at good value of 2.15 for a victory. Having conceded in five of their last seven home matches in the Champions League, over 2.5 goals could represent a good punt.

Ajax News

Hakim Ziyech is set to miss Wednesday’s clash with the Moroccan battling with a thigh problem. He is likely to be replaced by David Neres while Quincy Promes should retain his place in attack having scored seven goals in his last eight matches.

Chelsea Form

Chelsea bounced back from their opening day defeat with a 2-1 victory at Lille. Tammy Abraham netted the opener while Willian grabbed the winner after the French club had drawn level.

The Blues have impressed going forward lately with 16 goals in their last five matches across all competitions. Frank Lampard’s men have, however, lost two of their last three Champions League matches and could face a difficult time in Holand.

Chelsea News

Antonio Rudiger remains sidelined with a groin injury and will miss the trip to Amsterdam. Tammy Abraham should once again lead the line for Chelsea having scored nine goals in all competitions this season.

Ajax vs Chelsea Head to Head 

There has been only one previous match involving Ajax and Chelsea with the Dutch champions claiming a 3-1 victory in a friendly back in 2010.

Ajax vs Chelsea Betting Odds

A win for Ajax is priced at 2.15 while Chelsea are valued at 3.30 to triumph in Amsterdam with a draw set at odds of 3.40. Over 2.5 goals is offered at odds of 1.67 on bet365 with BTTS paying 1.53.

Ajax vs Chelsea Match Up 

Quincy Promes has been the standout player for Ajax lately having scored seven goals in his last eight matches. With Dusan Tadic also scoring three goals in his last five Champions League matches, the Dutch champions have enough to get past a shaky Chelsea defence.

Chelsea can also hold their own going forward with Tammy Abraham who was on target last time out against Lille. Willian and Mason Mount have also been among the goals lately and will carry a huge threat for Chelsea.
