Real Madrid vs Ajax tips AnObviousBettor
Real Madrid have won the Champions League for the past three seasons and should be able to finish off Ajax and reach the last eight of this season's competition. Their form continues to be inconsistent with two straight home defeats by Barcelona in the Copa del Rey and La Liga. Those losses mean they can concentrate on trying to win a fourth straight title. Three of their last four home games have been lost, the Barcelona defeats were always on the cards but the defeat by Girona most certainly wasn't. They also managed to lose one of their three Champions League group games, losing 3-0 to CSKA Moscow. Ajax have it all to do if they want to reach the last eight of the Champions League. They lost the home first leg 2-1 and so nearly got a draw with Real getting the winner in the 87th minute. The Dutch side have won their three games since the first leg scoring 13 goals. Their form on the road is a bit inconsistent though with two wins and two defeats in the Dutch league in which they are currently second. They haven't lost an away game in the Champions League this season but have drawn four of their last five away games in the competition. They have to score at least twice in this game to have any chance of reaching the quarter finals. That should mean an open game and the tip here is for over 2.5 goals to be scored.
Real Madrid vs Ajax tips Erik Perrins 11
Things are looking good for the hosts coming into this game. 100% of teams to have won 2-1 away from home in the first leg of a Champions League knockout match have progressed to the next round (8 previous cases). That’s left Ajax as massive outsiders to qualify, despite a strong showing in Europe this term. They came through a couple of tough clashes with Bayern Munich, drawing home and away. That gives them some hope ahead of the first leg, but they ended up being outclassed. The bookies are expecting another victory for Real in this one. They’re on a seven-game winning streak against Ajax, and they’re pushing to add to that in this one. The European champions need to get their home form back on track, while they could use a message in the Champions League. They’ve won 42 of their last 53 games here in this competition, and they should edge out Ajax in this one.
Real Madrid vs Ajax tips Chris T-Barcks
The visitors have managed to score in 12 of their last 13 games on the road in this competition. They’ve seen both teams score in 11 of those matches, while the Dutch side have scored in their last seven in Europe. We see them grabbing a goal in a defeat here, with Real conceding in eight of their last nine home games in the Champions League. I’m going for BTTS on Tuesday night.
