Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at Ajax vs Bayern Munich 5/6 for Wednesday’s Champions League clash

Competition: Champions League

Market: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals

Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365

Two sides who have already confirmed their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s tournament, Bayern Munich will travel to the Johan Cruijff Arena on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, since Erik ten Hag took over at the Johan Cruijff Arena back in December, Ajax have put in a string of impressive performances. Highlighted by their 1-1 draw away at Bayern back in October, the Dutch side are coming off the back of a 4-1 win over PEC Zwolle and are now enjoying a five-match winning run. Also yet to be beaten in any competition in their last 15 matches, a run that stems back to the end of September, it will be their form in the final third most impressing Hag. While they have recorded just two clean sheets in their last six matches, Ajax have remarkably scored 21 goals in their last five outings.

As for the visitors, desperately needing to get their season back on track and close the seven-point deficit to Borrusia Dortmund in the Bundesliga table, Niko Kovač will need his side to build off of their 3-0 win over Nürnberg on Saturday. Now winning their last three matches on the bounce, they have recorded 10 goals. However, with just one clean sheet in their last five, their are plenty of question marks over Bayern’s defence. Expected to name a strong XI as they look to carry on their rebuilding process, the defending Bundesliga champions will be looking for Robert Lewandowski to lead from the front. The Polish international has six Champions League goals to his name and sits atop of the goalscoring charts with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.
