Predictions for Ajax vs Rangers
- Rangers have lost five of the last ten European away matches and won only two of their ten European home games.
- Ajax has won 13 of the last 14 home competitive games.
- Since his return to the Netherlands, Steven Bergwijn has scored seven goals.
Football gets the attention of Ajax
The speculation about Ajax players is over.
However, this is not to suggest that the transfer deals have stopped them dominating the Netherlands. They lost the Dutch Super Cup final at the end July, but they have since won five consecutive matches to begin the Eredivisie campaign. They scored 16 goals and conceded three.
Gers: Away-day woes
De Godenzonen continued that streak on Saturday with a 4-0 win over Cambuur, just hours after their arch-rivals Celtic suffered a devastating defeat on Wednesday. To avoid another defeat on their travels, they will have to get over that defeat and move on.
It is concerning to see Gers away in Europe. They have lost five of the last ten European matches, despite a run to last season’s Europa League Final. They have conceded nine goals and only won two of five competitions this season.
Bergwijn will win the hearts of his hosts
Ajax, on the other hand, won all six Champions League Group Stage games and 13 of their 14 home competitive games. They are the clear favourites here, and I support them to win this game.
Rangers have lost both of their road defeats this season to zero. They also lost 2-0 to Union St Gilloise to qualify. In away games, they have conceded an average 1.8 goals so far. Ajax has won three of their four home games without conceding and a 2-0 correct score prediction is appealing.
Steven Bergwijn, a former Tottenham player, is a great choice for anyone looking to score anytime goals. Since his return to Holland, the Dutchman has been in top form. A brace at the weekend saw him score seven goals in six matches for Ajax. On Wednesday, he could punish Rangers.
