Ajax Vs FC Copenhagen
Ajax were poor in the first leg of this tie, losing the game 2-1 and will be keen to improve their performance this time out.
In second spot and four points behind Feyenoord, Ajax will be hoping they can take what has been some truly superb recent league form into the UEL this season and perhaps even go all the way in the competition. The side have lost just once in their previous 13 matches, against Copenhagen in the first leg of this tie and managed to pick up another league win last weekend with a 3-0 victory over Twente on home soil. Ajax will be well aware that Copenhagen have been impressive this season though and will have to be at their best to get a win from the match.
Copenhagen picked up an 11th Superlig title last season and will head into this year looking to make their mark on the league once again whilst also balancing their European aspirations. The side looked unstoppable for large parts of last year and will be keen to continue their imperious league form once again this season. The team battled past Ajax in the last leg of this tie and will be hoping that their slender one goal advantage is enough to help them through to the next round.
Copenhagen got off to a dream start in the last leg of this tie scoring after just one minute through Falk. Dolberg leveled things up for Ajax before half time but Cornelius popped up just before the hour mark to give Copenhagen a 2-1 victory and the massive home win. Ajax do take what could be a hugely important away goal into this one though and will be desperate to take something from this very winnable match and move into the next round of the competition.
For me Ajax will win this one. The team failed to turn up last time out and looked strangely inhibited by the occasion. However, I think on home soil and in front of their home fans they will find a way to win and I fancy them to force their way through to the next round. Go for the home win with Dolberg to continue his impressive season and get the first goal of the game.
