Strong Ajax to finish the job off


Ajax have bought well this summer and, after a disappointing 2017/18 season, look well-placed to enjoy more success this term.

Ajax 27/4 to beat Standard Liege 2-0

The acquisitions of Dusan Tadic, Daley Blind, Hassane Bande and Zakaria Labyad appear sensible and, after their early exit from Europe last season, they should qualify for the group stage of the Champions League this term.

Standard Liege are the latest team to stand in their way in the third qualifying round and did well to hit back from two goals down in last week’s first leg in Belgium to draw 2-2, but Ajax have the quality to stroll into the next round.

AEK Athens 33/20 to beat Celtic

Celtic’s Champions League campaign looks set to come to an end in Greece after they failed to build on Callum McGregor’s early goal against AEK Athens in Glasgow last week.

The Greek side hit back to equalise and held on for a 1-1 draw despite having Kostas Galanopoulos sent off in the 57th minute.

AEK are the reigning Super League Greece champions having only lost two games last season and have the strength in depth to edge past Brendan Rodgers’ side on home soil in the second leg.

Fenerbahce 7/4 to beat Benfica

Fenerbahce defended stoutly in last week’s first leg against Benfica in Lisbon and can finish the Portuguese side off on Tuesday.

Benfica are in transition and their defensive frailties were on show on Friday when they only just got the better of Vitoria de Guimaraes 3-2 in their first Primeira Liga match of the campaign.

Fenerbahce finished second in the Super Lig last term and are always difficult to beat at their Sukru Saracoglu Stadium.

They are good value to win the second leg and even more attractive at 27/4 to win the encounter by two goals.
