For two games, it looked as if the four-time overall winner of the premier class from the Netherlands in the 2019/20 season could continue where he stopped last season, when it was only in the semi-finals final stop. The first two games Ajax won each 3-0. But then Chelsea came.
Chelsea vs Ajax Amsterdam Free Betting Tips
The Lampard-Elf pulled the Amsterdamers in the home Johan Cruyff Arena in the first leg two weeks ago the plug, remained defensively without conceding and took over because of the golden goal of Michy Batshuayi the leaders in the group H. Already with a draw in the second leg would be defended them successfully.
It is Chelsea against Ajax Amsterdam in the odds of the bookmakers in the clear favorites role, which of course, of course, is also due to the strong international balance sheet of Londoners.
The 1-0 home defeat to Valencia CF at the start of the tournament was their only defeat in the last 18 European competitions in UEFA competitions (14 wins, three draws). Ajax Amsterdam is quite a factor for the prediction.
In addition, the Godenzonen currently have to worry about success coach Erik ten Hag massively, according to consensus newspaper reports, after the Kovac expulsion was already contacted by FC Bayern Munich and never made a secret to want to train the German record champions like.
Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
Early in the season, the Londoners experienced some painful setbacks. At home, the season started 1-1 against Leicester and 2-2 against Sheffield. Two clubs, which at that time was not foreseeable that they would count after eleven matchdays to the top teams of the Premier League.
In addition, the bitter week followed with the two home defeats against Valencia (0: 1) and Liverpool (1: 2). But then the Lampard-Eleven put several switches and returned to the road to success.
The 2-1 away win last Saturday, where the dress rehearsal for the Ajax return match was successful, already marked the fifth league victory in series, with a starting position for the Champions League could be further secured. The advantage over fifth place is already comfortable six points.
“In the away game at Ajax and at home against Liverpool we were challenged pretty hard. If I had to find the needle in a haystack, it’s the fact that sometimes we did not last long enough. I know that’s not easy, but we’re always looking for more. ” – Frank Lampard at Football London
In the Champions League, the blues also returned immediately and lead after two consecutive wins on the table of Group H. After the 1-0 away win, in which the previous leaders from the Netherlands could be dethroned, beat in this second leg between Chelsea and Ajax Amsterdam, the odds again clearly towards the home side.
Also, as Chelsea FC have lost just one match of their last 18 games in UEFA competitions (14 wins, three draws) – the 1-0 win over Valencia, with Ross Barkley even conceding a penalty in a massive field superiority game.
In addition, the military hospital of London has further thinned. Although Antonio Rüdiger still lacking a central defender, Marco van Ginkel would be an option in central midfield. All other players, however, are ready for action again.
Accordingly, the challenge for Frank Lampard is to keep the high-caliber squad happy. Last time in the League Cup, when he once shot through against Manchester United, was finally in a minor competition a 1: 2 home defeat at Stamford Bridge to book.
In fact, the only defeat of the last nine competitive games. The other eight games were all won. That also says a lot about the current form of Champions League overall winner of 2012 …
Expected formation of Chelsea:
↪ Kepa – Emerson – Tomori – Zouma – Azpilicueta – N’Kante – Jorginho – Mount – Pulisic – Willian – Abraham

Ajax Amsterdam – Statistics & Current Form
In terms of the national league, the Eredivisie, the 1-0 home defeat against Chelsea FC in the first leg did not detract from the heyday of the Godenzons.
First, Ajax won in the Dutch “Klassieker” 4-0 at home against Feyenoord Rotterdam. Last Friday, Zwolle had four own goals in their 4-2 away win and the successful dress rehearsal.
Thus, Ajax Amsterdam leads with 32 out of 36 possible points from the first twelve games of the season in no uncertain terms the table – also because main rivals PSV has only one of nine possible points from the last three games and thus has already built eight points distance to the Godenzonen.
“We have to fix something. We did not get home against Chelsea what we deserved. A draw would have been correct. […] We know that this is about a lot. The winner gets nine points and takes a big step towards wintering in this competition. ” – Joel Veltman at voetbalprimeur.nl
Basically, the situation could not look better with the semi-finalist of the 2019/20 season, who has also been able to win the coveted Henkel pot four times in the past. In Group H, Ajax have six points and 6: 1 goals from the first three games, the group victory still entirely in his own hands.
Nevertheless, the mood since Sunday evening is depressed in the Dutch capital. Successful coach Erik ten Hag, who was coach of FC Bayern München II between 2013 and 2015, has repeatedly emphasized that he would always stand in the trap if the German champions would have a chance of winning the coaching seat.
Exactly this chance seems to open up now with the official end of Niko Kovac. Although the Reds stressed that Hansi Flick would sit in the Champions League and also in the German classic against Borussia Dortmund on the bench, but then could accept the new coach – and the bookmakers see in Erik ten Hag the hot favorite.
Thus, this is also a week of trembling for the God Zones, who may be under their hit coach before the last two competitive games. That could well influence the mentality that matters on Stamford Bridge.
One of many reasons, at Chelsea Vs. Ajax Amsterdam Tip 1 as the more sustainable option, although the European balance sheet of the Dutch can also be seen. Under Erik ten Hag, the Godenzonen lost only three of their last 25 European competitive games (14 wins, eight draws) …
Expected formation of Ajax Amsterdam:
↪ Onana – Tagliafico – Blind – Veltman – Dest – Álvarez – Martinez – van de Beek – Promes – Ziyech – Tadic
Last matches of Ajax Amsterdam:
⚽️ 01.11.2019 – PEC Zwolle Vs. Ajax Amsterdam 2: 4 (Eredivisie)
