APOEL Nicosia vs Ajax Match Preview
Ajax outclassed VVV (1-4) with goals from Ziyech, Tadic, Huntelaar, and Neres over the weekend and now travel to Nicosia for the first leg of their Champions League Play-offs clash on the back of a three-match winning streak, where they also beat Emmen (5-0) and PAOK (3-2) in UCL 3rd Qualifying Round.
De Godenzonen will now hope they can build on the success and earn an advantage at Neo GSP stadium already, despite struggles for consistency on the road – which came especially obvious at the back. They have been scoring (and conceding) numbers of goals along the way and Erik ten Hag will surely employ an attacking approach now as well.
APOEL have, on the other hand, edged past Qarabag with a 0-2 win last week, making up for a 1-2 home loss to the rivals and making their way to the Play-offs. They haven’t started the domestic campaign yet, though, and this could be more worrying as Ajax love the high intensity and could make it count on the day.
Τhrylos have bagged four wins in their last five outings and could be putting a more disappointing start of the pre-season behind them, where Thomas Doll has ground to build on – with goals coming from all directions and Andrija Pavlovic bagging a hat-trick against Sutjeska.
We will still back Ajax to bag an advantage here already and make a step towards the Group stage in an exciting clash, as we stick our necks out for an Away win and a Yes on Both teams to score – which combines to an enticing 2/1 with bet365 and looks a great approach to the fixture.
With that in mind, it’s easy to make a case for a high-scoring contest and this has us going for Over 2.5 Goals FT too, which comes at 7/10 with 22bet and has caught the eye of many big hitters already.
