Ajax – PAOK, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR AJAX - PAOK
Ajax and PAOK got their heads up in the first game. The Amsterdam team is not yet fully ready in defense after de Ligt departure. The talent and character of the young Dutchman were exceptional and he will now delight Old Lady. That is why Ajax allows easier goals, but they till can’t stop scoring a lot of goals, as their attack is even better.
PAOK will seek a minimum goal. They have conceded 2 goals away from home and that makes them outsiders in the rematch. Certainly PAOK have experience from last season and it was no accident that they eliminated Spartak Moscow and Basel. They are in good form at the moment and is scoring a lot of goals, which will benefit them against Ajax. It depends on how the hosts will approach the match and whether they will let PAOK attack them on the counter.
Expert view : We expect to have a goal match again. It’s just that these two teams are currently playing to score goals. There is nothing more valuable to them. PAOK have scored 24 goals in their last 7 games. Ajax defeated Emmen 5-0 at Dutch Eredivisie Weekend. We do not now believe that either team will approach it differently. Ajax will certainly want the win and they will hardly count on luck or kill the pace to slow down the game. Prediction – Over 2.5 goals at 1.52.
- 7 of Ajax’s last 9 games have ended with over 2.5 goals
- PAOK has over 2.5 goals in 7 consecutive games
