Chelsea vs Ajax: Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

Chelsea vs Ajax Champion League
Chelsea vs Ajax, Champions League, Stamford Bridge

Ajax became many people’s second team last season as they knocked out some of the big boys. It has been more difficult this year and Chelsea could make it even harder at Stamford Bridge.

Our Betting Tips

Frank Lampard has got his young side playing very well this season and, after the surprise win in Ajax, there could be more to shout about at Stamford Bridge.

CHELSEA TO WIN

Ajax have managed to score three goals on two occasions already in this group. But they may find the Chelsea defence a little harder to breach.

TOTAL GOALS UNDER 2.5

Chelsea have tended to play it very tight in the Champions League, scoring just three goals and conceding two in the three games. This game could go the same way.

CHELSEA TO KEEP A CLEAN SHEET

Statistics

Head to Head

When Chelsea beat Ajax 1-0 in Amsterdam on match day three it was the first time that these two clubs had ever met.

Stats

  • Chelsea’s record in Europe recently has been very impressive. The Premier League club have lost just one of their last 18 continental games.
  • Ajax have reached a semi final and a final in Europe in two of the last three seasons – losing to an English club on both occasions.
  • After a summer in which they were forbidden from signing any new players, Chelsea have started the season well – leading their Champions League group and sitting fourth in the Premier League.
  • Ajax have made a similarly positive start to the season after losing some of last season’s squad to bigger clubs. The Dutch side’s defeat to Chelsea last time out was their first in any competition this campaign.

Our Prediction for Chelsea vs Ajax

Chelsea to win

Not much was expected of Chelsea in Europe this season – but Frank Lampard has his young team playing very well and they could take all three points here.
