Ajax vs Benfica UEFA Champions League
In the third round of Group E we will have in Amsterdam the confrontation between the formation of Ajax and Benfica.
Benfica travels to the Dutch capital to face Ajax in a big way and has given letters inside and outside the doors.
Benfica after a victory for the Portuguese Cup over modest Sertanense now has a complicated mission even because the European Benfica under the command of Rui Vitoria has had several shortcomings and even in the victory in Athens the incarnates had to penar and to have a point of luck to leave victorious of that game.
Ajax started well this Group E since on the first day they dispatched the AEK of Athens by three balls to zero and in the second match they managed a brilliant draw and a ball in the Allianz Arena against Bayern Munich with Mazraoui to score the Dutch goal that left Germany with head held high after sharing the game.
Ajax in the Dutch league is also well enough to be in second place with 22 points drawn as the result of seven wins, a draw and a defeat by being five points behind PSV leader who until now only know to win in the Dutch league.
This weekend Ajax showed once again their good moment by beating Heerenveen away from home four balls to zero. For this game Bende and Veltman will be out.
Benfica shows in this Champions League start once again their irregularity; the incarnations began to lose at home with Bayern Munich by two balls to zero and in the second round they beat out the AEK of Athens by three balls to two in a game that is marked by the lack of incarnate consistency since in the first minutes they exhibited well having been winning by two balls to zero but when they were turned off of the game the incarnates allowed the recovery of the Greek team that arrived at the tie and could even have won the meeting.
Benfica by Rui Vitória in European competitions has been this, a team with more negative than positive foci and hence the number of successive group stage defeats that even earned them last season as the worst team in the League of Nations Champions.
Benfica after the pause for national teams won the Sertanense by three balls to zero in a game to count for the Portuguese Cup.
The incarnates lead the Portuguese league but outside the story has been another, remains to know how the incarnates will perform at this meeting where they will be without their two central holders:
Jardel still accounts for his injury and Rúben Dias after being sent off in Athens, in addition Krovinovic remains low in the team incarnated being the Croatian who has long been away from the competitions.
Betting Tips and Predictions Analyzed Ajax vs Benfica
Ajax welcomes Benfica in great form, it is a team with great offensive capacity and it is not strange that in the Dutch league Huntelaar, Tadic and the Moroccan Ziyech stand out in the list of markers.
It will be a tricky game for Benfica that even more will have to play with a pair of alternative powerhouses and less round than usual.
I foresee great difficulties of the incarnates and so I believe in the victory of the home team in this game.
