Valencia vs Ajax Match Preview
Valencia host Ajax for their Champions League clash in a good mood and just days after beating in-form Athletic Bilbao (0-1), where a single goal from Denis Cheryshev proved enough for all three points and kept them in the chase for a top 4 spot early in the new La Liga campaign.
Los Che thus extended a four-match unbeaten streak, after snatching the points at Chelsea (0-1) on Matchday 1 and sharing the spoils with both Leganes (1-1) and Getafe (3-3). They’ve been scoring goals on the regular and the thrashing 5-2 loss at Barcelona now seems long behind them, making Celades’ job to lift their spirits an easy one.
Ajax lack no such thing, though, and will surely be no sitting ducks at Mestalla. They come into the match on the back of a 2-0 home win over Groningen as well as a 15-match unbeaten streak – where they bagged the Dutch Super Cup (2-0 win over PSV) and earned ten wins and five draws across competitions.
De Godenzonen have had more trouble reaching consistency on the road and this could prove more worrying. Still, they’ve bagged four draws and two wins in six trips this term and we feel they have what it takes to extend the unbeaten streak away from home on the day as well.
We’ll thus go for them to snatch a point in an exciting Draw priced at 13/5 with bet365, which feels like a lively longshot as both sides boast great team spirits and come into the match desperate to keep hold of their respective streaks of recent.
We expect goals and we’ll go for them with a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/7 with William Hill, which fits perfectly into our predictions for the game and has been rated buying money for old rope by heavy hitters already.
