Ajax vs Valencia Prediction and Betting Preview, 10 Dec 2019

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-1
Ajax v Valencia Prediction and Preview for Tuesday's Champions League group fixture. Group H table toppers AFC Ajax will be taking on second-place Valencia tomorrow evening in a crucial UEFA Champions’ League group stage encounter at Johan Cryuff Arena.
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Group Stages
Kick-off:
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam)
The race for qualification from the group is pretty intense at the moment, nothing less than we expected. A group consisting of European heavyweights of all sorts – Chelsea, Ajax, Lille and Valencia - was never really going to be an easy one. Interestingly, it has played out that way.

The hosts are enjoying the view from the top of the standings, two points clear of the visitors in second place with Chelsea following closely in third, level on points with Valencia.

Erik ten Hag, heading into this game, is well aware that a loss against Los Ches, with results elsewhere going against them, could see them plonk down to third on the standings. Surely, the manager cannot afford to let that happen. It should be an entertaining and enthralling game in Amsterdam.

Ajax v Valencia Team News

The Dutch champions set the pace at the top of Group H and are set to play host to Los Ches in the final round of group stage fixtures. With an impressive record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat, de Godenzonen sit atop the ladder, two points clear of both Valencia and Chelsea in second and third place respectively.

Last time out in the league, last season’s Champions League semi-finalists were stunned by a resilient Willem II side, edging them out in a 2-0 thrilling encounter. That happened to be their first league loss in over nine months. Damn, this Ajax squad is out of this world!

However, they wouldn’t care less about the loss, given they are still leading the chasing pack in Eredivisie with an impressive win-draw-loss record of 12-2-1.

At home, they have been taking every single team they have faced this season to the cleaners, dispatching oppositions with relative ease. Across all competitions, they have recorded 10 wins and 2 losses, averaging 3 goals per game while allowing 0.58 at the other end of the pitch.

Valencia, on the other hand, have equally been up to snuff in the Champions League this season. A track record of 2 wins, 2 draw and a loss is a pretty decent one against teams of the stature they have been pitted against.

Games cannot come any bigger than this for Albert Celades’ men. A loss in this fixture, with Chelsea overcoming Lille at Stamford Bridge, will condemn them to a third-place finish. As such, they will be missing out on Champions League knockout stages action come February.
Los Ches will lay blood and sweat bare on the pitch in the fixture in a bid to salvage something meaningful against this foe.

The injuries from the 3-0 drubbing the visitors received from Ajax back in October are still very much fresh. Goals from Ziyech, van der Beek and Promes brought Valencia down to bare bones, even at the Mestalla Stadium.

Such an entertaining fixture, it was a rather open affair with 27 shots combined between the two team, but only one did the scoring.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Ajax: David Neres, Quincy Promes.

Valencia: Cristiano Piccini, Gonçalo Guedes, Lee Kang-In, Ezequiel Garay.

Ajax vs Valencia Predictions

The visitors are expected to be in attack mode from start to finish in this fixture as their qualification hopes are on thin ice at the moment. They will be gunning for nothing but victory in Amsterdam which will likely give the hosts room to break on the counter.

This Ajax team have a couple of pacey players within their ranks and will likely get a goal or two on the break. Definitely, they are slight favourites to come away with the win.
