Ajax 17/20 to beat Lille in Wednesday’s Champions League showdown

Competition: Champions League

Market: Ajax win

Odds: 17/20 @ Bet 365

Handed a real chance to move one step closer to the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League, Ajax will make the trip to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, suffering a 2-0 defeat away at defending Ligue 1 champions PSG last weekend, it is quickly becoming a campaign to forget for Lille. With the pressure really starting to mount on Head Coach Christophe Galtier, the French outfit have lost three of their last four matchups and they have remarkably recorded just a single victory across any format since the 25th of September. Also seen to be the whipping boy in Group H after failing to win any of their opening four European appearances, Wednesday night could prove to be yet another long 90 minutes for a struggling Lille side.

As for the visitors, picking up a 4-1 win over Heracles and really bouncing back from their eight-goal thriller against Chelsea earlier in the month, the mood in Erik ten Hag’s camp continues to soar. Already holding a six-point buffer at the top of the Eredivisie and sat at the top of Group H, they will undoubtedly travel to France confident of extending their winning run. A huge part of Ajax’s continued success this season has been their unbelievable form in the final third. Once again bagging a quartet of strikes over the weekend, the Dutch giants have now scored four goals in each of their previous five matches on the bounce.
