AEK Athens vs Ajax Predictions and Top Betting Tips
AEK Athens vs Ajax will be a curious game after the performances in the opening round. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
This is an interesting fixture for multiple reasons. Firstly, AEK won their opening match against Brighton on the road, which was a surprise. Now, they will face a broken Ajax that is having its worst start in decades. They will have their chances and we think that they will score goals in this match. Of course, we expect scoring on both ends and Ajax will not give them an easy game.
Draw No Bet Prediction: AEK Athens DNB
Shockingly, bookmakers do not think that Ajax have a big chance in this game. This has been their worst start of a campaign in a while. The team has only one win from the opening match in the Eredivisie. Right now, they have five consecutive games without a win. They will get back on track at some point but this will be a very tough game. AEK Athens are an incredible home side.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to AEK Athens
AEK played an exceptional match against Brighton and won 3-2 on the road. Ajax failed to beat Marseille at home and for the better part of that match, the visitors controlled the match. When we compare the AEK Athens vs Ajax line ups, we think that the visitors should definitely have the advantage in strength. In terms of form, however, AEK are in a much better shape.
AEK Athens vs Ajax Team Previews
AEK Athens Preview
The Greek champions are coming out for a famous night in Europe after a massive win in the opening round. Scoring three goals in England against Brighton is a massive performance by itself and they have good chances for another win against Ajax. AEK's form right now is incredible and they are dominating the home league again.
We do not remember the last time Ajax had such a bad start. The team has won two games since the start of the season in all competitions. This makes for six games out of eight which they failed to win. And those few defeats they suffered were huge. 3-1 to Twente, 4-0 to Feyenoord, etc. They may even fail to beat AEK here.
