Ajax and Real Madrid are playing against each other in the 1/8-finals of the Champions League. The Dutch side had solid autumn and are one of the five teams that didn’t have a loss in the group stage of the competition. Ajax were one step away from the first place in Group E, but Bayern Munich took it after a spectacular 3-3 draw in Amsterdam. However, recently the results are not that good, and Ajax were defeated with 6-2 as guests of Feyenoord in Eredivisie, while over the weekend lost with 1-0 against Heracles.
Real Madrid have a strange season so far. Firstly, Los Blancos started well, but disappointments in the autumn followed one after another. Eventually, Real Madrid won the first place in Group G, with three points more than Roma. Since the start of 2019, Los Blancos are in fantastic form and are on a run of seven consecutive fixtures without a defeat in all competitions. Over the weekend, Santiago Solari’s players took an important victory with 3-1 against their city rivals – Atletico Madrid, and are now on the second place in the standings in La Liga, six points behind Barcelona.
We expect the games between two giants of European football to be spectacular and with many goals. Ajax and Real Madrid are symbols of the attacking football, and it’s highly unlikely to change their style for these fixtures. The current form both sides suggests that Real Madrid will win, but we shouldn’t underestimate that Ajax have just one loss in the previous 21 games at home in the European competitions, while this season they don’t have a defeat on Johan Cruijff Arena in all competitions. I will back Real Madrid to Win or Draw and Both Teams to Score, with Draw 2-2 Correct Score.
