Ajax vs Lille
Date: Thursday, 25 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena.
The Lancers have transformed themselves into one of the best teams in Europe. They are on a long winning run, and are trying to replicate their deep run into the Champions League a season before.
They managed to deliver a clutch win on the road in the first leg, and surely have the upper hand.
They lead in aggregate scoreline, and also have two away goals to their name. Moreover, they are at home, and their offense has been on fire all this campaign.
Les Dogues will have to score at least twice this Thursday to have any chance of progressing, and Erik ten Hag’s men will easily take advantage of this desperation.
As such, expect Ajax to win the game.
Ajax vs Lille: Head-to-head (h2h)

- At this stadium, the latest encounter had ended in a 3-0 win for the hosts.
Ajax vs Lille Prediction
Hag’s men are on a ten-game winning run, and a 15-match unbeaten run. They had scored two or more goals in 22 of their past 26 overall fixtures, and they have lost just thrice at home since March of 2020. Two of these three defeats had come in the CL.
On top of that, they also have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes over the years, and they also had won the reverse match-up, and that too on the road.
For the reasons, expect Ajax to deliver a winning performance this Thursday.
However, notice that Christophe Galtier’s men are on a roll in France at the moment. They had won 11 of their former 15 overall fixtures, and are on an eight-game winning run on the road.
They are also at the top of Ligue 1 table, over the likes of PSG and Lyon. Likely, they could be counted on to find the back of the net at least once.
