Reason for Ajax vs Valencia UEFA Champions League Picks

Ajax -159

After a dazzling run in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals last season that made Europe sit up and take notice, Ajax is once again drawing attention to the big stage. With 10 points in his name after 5 games, the hosts have done very well so far and only have to present a mature performance Tuesday to advance the group.

With 3 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss and +5 in goal difference, Ajax leads the standings, two points above Chelsea and Valencia. Semi-finalists last season will qualify for the round of 16 if they avoid defeat on Tuesday.

Ajax fell only in its second home defeat of the campaign (all competitions) last time with two-digit odds (W11, D1, L2). However, the hosts lost just three of their last 27 European outings with Erik ten Hag (W15, D9, L3), and became the first Dutch team to beat Valencia on the back of H2H.

Key Player: Ajax full-back Nicolás Tagliafico has scored five goals in UCL home games since the start of last season, all of which came after half-time.

News: Ezequiel Garay is suspended for Valencia's final group game after picking up his third booking in the competition last time out against Chelsea | Jasper Cillessen came off injured after 27 minutes in Saturday's win away to Levante and is expected to miss out here for Los Che | Valencia have a number of injury problems ahead of their trip to Amsterdam and could end up being without eight players.

Valencia +409

The mission is clear for Valencia in Amsterdam and they must simply try to win the match. Something less likely would see them fall in the Europa League, and it seems very unlikely that Chlesea leave home points against Lille already eliminated.

After being beaten by Ajax 3-0 in his native country, the Spaniards will have to improve their performance against the Dutch team this time to have a chance. Valencia recorded 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat in the competition.

They will progress as group winners if they win on Tuesday. Any other result would put them in danger since Lille, fourth, has nothing more to play at Stamford Bridge. Spaniards who score no more than one goal in one of their last 11 games away from UCL (including the playoffs). Despite this, both teams have found the net in each of the last six games outside Valencia in all competitions.

Key Player: Alex Oxlade Chamberlain (LIV) has three UCL goals to his name, with two struck from outside the box.

News: Andrew Robertson will incur a one-match ban in the Champions League if he is booked on Tuesday but Jurgen Klopp cannot afford to rest the Scotland international here as Valencia still need a result to qualify | Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have all been rested at times over the last two matches but will all start in midweek.

 

The Pick: Draw @ +362, Under 3.5 Goals
