Predictions Ajax travelled to lowly Emmen midweek and hammered them 5-2 and moved within two points of PSV who are sitting top of the Eredivise on 70 points. They have a game away to Willem II on Saturday and will need to win in that game to keep pace at the top of the league – before turning their attentions to their Champions League game with Juventus. Juventus had another routine 2-0 win over Cagliari in Sardinia midweek and have a warm up match with Milan on Saturday in preparation for this trip to Amsterdam – The Bianconeri have lost just once in Serie A this season. Ajax finished second in their Champion’s League group on 12 points behind Bayern Munich but ahead of the likes of Benfica and AEK Athens – they then knocked out three in a row champions Real Madrid 5-3 on aggregate including a memorable 4-1 win in the Bernabeu. Juventus came first in their Champion’s League group on 12 points ahead of Manchester United, Valencia, and Swiss side Young Boys – they lost 2-0 in the Wanda Metropolitano to Atletico Madrid in their first leg but overturned the tie in the second, played at the Allianz Stadium – thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s hattrick. Ronaldo has been struggling with a muscle injury picked up on International duty but could be back in time for this game. A 2-2 draw is well worth considering. 1×2 Predictions Bet Now With Sportingbet Score Predictions Bet Now With Sportingbet Betting Tips The draw is available Ajax outplayed Real Madrid in the last round but still ended up losing 2-1, they will need to be sharper in front of goal in this game.
