Ajax vs Lille for the UEFA Champions League group match on Tuesday at Amsterdam Arena Stadium.
For the first round of the UEFA Champions League group stage, we have the prediction Ajax vs Lille. The match takes place this Tuesday 17/09 in the Netherlands. At the end of this article, you can check out the free guess for the game.
The teams have never faced each other before, this is an original game in European football. So we have the meeting of two teams that made an excellent last season. Ajax made it to the semifinal of the previous edition of the Champions League, while Lille was the runner-up of the French Championship.
Ajax comes into play looking to start the tournament well to try to repeat the excellent season. The team and leader of the national championship after 5 games, 4 wins and 1 draw. Plays with much higher quality than other clubs.
Also, the team has been 11 games without a defeat. In their last match, they faced Heerenveen in Eredivisie and won well by 4 × 1.
In this way, Ajax dominated the game in all areas. Showed good movement in midfield and on the wings. Thus, the team seems to be well-matched and ready for continental competition.
The Lille team has been out of the Champions League for 6 editions. That is, it oscillated between not very good seasons for the French Championship and only this year was again qualified for the continental competition.
The team has prepared well to seize this opportunity and has a superior technical team. However, for the national championship games, there still seems to be some adjustments that need to be made in the group.
In this unprecedented clash, we have Ajax favouritism. Besides being the game’s host, in theory, the team is stronger than Lille’s. However, a Champions League game is always unpredictable.
There is a tendency that we will have few goals in the game, so it is more likely that only one team will score. For our free guess of Ajax vs Lille prediction, we bet on a match where teams will study the opponent before going into the attack.
