Ajax vs Aston Villa: Top Free Betting Tips

Ajax will face Aston Villa in the biggest fixture from the 1/8 finals of the Europa Conference League. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

This was supposed to be the final in this year's ECL or at least these are the two best teams still in contention. Unfortunately, we will see one of them exit at such an early stage. The most certain thing about this fixture is that you can expect goals. Both sides have incredible attacks and rarely score less than two goals per match. More importantly, both sides concede in almost every single game they play. This will be an incredible match to watch and you can even combine the goal markets if you want.

Match Result Prediction: Aston Villa to Win

This is a very tough choice but we believe that Aston Villa are the stronger team right now. If you remember, Ajax had the worst season start in history and while they have improved and win games nowadays, their defense remains very problematic. In the previous round, they faced Bodo/Glimt and barely made it out after extra time. Bodo managed to get a draw in their away game. Aston Villa have not been in perfect form but their attack is brilliant and can definitely score more than once in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Aston Villa

One way or another, this will be an incredible fixture and extremely competitive. It is hard to pick a winner here as we have the two strongest sides in the competition. However, based on Ajax's recent performances and their terrible display against Bodo, we believe that Villa will come out victorious from this first leg. When we compare the Ajax vs Aston Villa line ups, we also believe that the visitors have the better squad.

How Far Will Aston Villa Fans Travel To Ajax?

Aston Villa's fans will have to cross about 350 miles in each direction if they choose to travel by road. However, the fastest way to travel from Birmingham to Amsterdam is by flying. Birmingham Airport (BHX) offers direct flights to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) operated by various airlines. The flight duration is typically around 1 to 1.5 hours. Otherwise, you can take a train from Birmingham to Amsterdam, but it involves multiple connections and transfers.

Ajax vs Aston Villa: Tickets

Ajax sold out the tickets for this fixture a while ago. The only way to get a ticket is through reseller marketplaces like Stubhub and Viagogo but know that the prices will be higher than normal.
