Ajax vs Borussia Dortmund
Europe – UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 19 October 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena.
Ajax and Dortmund are currently the toppers of Group C with perfect winning records, and they have practically eliminated the other two teams from the race for the top-two spots.
And now the race is on between these two squads to become group champions, and on that account, a win is supremely important this Tuesday for either squad. Likely, expect an eventful clash at the Johan Crujiff Arena with plenty of goals.
Ajax vs Borussia Dortmund Head-to-head
- The two squads have locked horns four times so far, and both teams have secured two wins apiece.
- Ajax had won three of their former five encounters against other German rivals, and not once have they failed to score during this period.
- BVB have a 100% unbeaten record against other Dutch rivals, barring a single loss against Feyenoord in 2002.
Ajax vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction & Analysis
Ajax recorded a 2-0 win at home the last match-day in the CL, against Besiktas. They had also won eight of their previous nine fixtures, and they have lost at home just thrice in total all through 2021.
Note that they had also scored a total of 24 goals just from their last six home appearances.
On the other hand Der BVB had registered a 1-0 victory at home against Sporting the last game week in the CL, and they have continued to be the best in Germany just behind Bayern.
They have been scoring goals almost at will – courtesy, some of their monstrous young talents.
And with either team going for the win this Tuesday (in order to take the first position with a lead), expect a fierce encounter – and judging the offense on either sides, anticipate goals in plenty too.
