Ajax vs Getafe Prediction and Betting Preview, 27 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Ajax had their UEFA Champions League journey thwarted following a disappointing spell in the group phases of the competition. A very close encounter it was in Group H, the Sons of the Gods were forced to settle behind both Valencia and Chelsea on the log.
Match status: 2019-20 Europa League Round of 32
Kick-off:
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam)
Erik ten Hag’s men look a total shadow of the side that steamrolled their way to the semi-finals of this competition last season. Receiving loads of plaudits from fans and the media alike, Ajax took Europe by storm, even putting in a strong claim for the title.

However, they have struggled immensely this term, failing to scale through the group stages of the Champions League. Also, they were dealt a major blow in the first-leg of this fixture against Getafe in Spain, as two unanswered goals were fired past goalkeeper Andre Onana.

With the return leg of this fixture on the horizon, the home side will be looking to overturn the two-goal deficit to book a place in the last-16 of the Europa League. As kickoff draws closer, the question hovering about everyone’s mind is “Will the real AFC Ajax please stand up”?

Ajax vs Getafe Team News

After a disappointing first leg, one that saw last year’s Champions League semi-finalists fail to register a shot on target, Ajax will be happy to return home. They’re a different side when being spurred on by the Amsterdam Arena crowd, which is just as well, as they’ve given themselves something of an uphill task.

Not only did Ajax both fail to score and fail to register a shot on target when the teams met in Spain, but they also managed just two shots. That’s quite simply not good enough. Significant improvement is required if the Dutchmen are to progress to the last-16.

Fortunately, Ajax have a pleasing recent record at home, winning each of their last seven in all competitions. However, facing a disciplined, organised and sturdy Getafe side, chasing a two-goal deficit, presents the hosts with a test that is dissimilar to their usual home tasks.

If Ajax have it all to do, Getafe have one foot in the next round. Thanks to an excellent first-leg effort, where they not only kept their visitors at bay but offered a threat going forward, the Spaniards go to Amsterdam in a strong position.

Getafe, who currently occupy 5 th place in the Spanish top-flight, aren’t the most flamboyant side, but as we saw last week, they’re very good at stopping teams from hitting their stride, while they’re a threat from both set pieces and on the break, of that both of their first leg goals are proof.

Stopping Ajax from getting serious in the final third will be a lot harder away from home, but the visitors probably won’t mind that, as they avoided conceding an away-goal, and will almost certainly fancy themselves to threaten on the counter.

It is also worth noting that Ajax have conceded two or more in four of the last five Europa League matches that they’ve been involved in.
