Ajax vs PAOK Match Preview
Ajax have been held off in Thessaloniki but still host PAOK with a 2-2 draw earned in the first leg, hoping to capitalize on two away goals scored and make their way to the Champions League Play-offs over the Greek rivals – boasting a great character in Amsterdam and hoping to show it off.
De Godenzonen have struggled to turn clashes their way recently, though, and they come into their weekend clash against Emmen with three consecutive draws behind them – where Sivasspor (1-1 in a friendly) and Vitesse (2-2 in Eredivisie) both took something from their exciting clashes with goals.
PAOK took the lead twice in front of the home fans but it wasn’t enough to take an advantage with them to Johan Cruijff Arena. They’ve shown off as a very tough side to beat but Abel Ferreira and his men could need even more on Tuesday evening, as we expect even more of a challenge from Ajax.
Black-Whites have thus seen their four-match winning streak ended after a rock-solid pre-season campaign, where they beat Universitatea Cluj (0-5), Sint-Truiden (0-4), Anderlecht (1-3), and Fortuna Sittard (1-5) in high-scoring clashes where they enjoyed an attacking approach.
PAOK will need goals in Amsterdam too and we’re sure to see them motivated going forward, which does promise goals. Still, we do see Ajax rising to the challenge as we now back them to a win and a Yes on Both teams to score – which combines to 2/1 with Coral.
We’re thus making a case for another high-scoring head-to-head clash and with that in mind, we’re also backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 7/10 with Novibet. Both sides have been scoring and conceding numbers of goals lately and this feels like a generous banker bet.
