Chelsea vs Ajax Betting Preview | 5 Nov 2019

Making a return to winning ways at Vicarage Road over the weekend, Chelsea will now turn their attentions back to European duties when Ajax make the trip to West London on Tuesday night.

While the former Premier League champions may have seen their EFL Cup dreams come to an end last week, Frank Lampard’s side have continued on quite the extended purple patch.

Winning eight of their last nine matches across all formats, Chelsea are not the only side who have made a much-needed return to winning ways.

Putting four past PEC Zwolle over the weekend, the Dutch giants have landed back-to-back victories and it should also be noted that they have bagged four goals in each of those victories.

However, suffering a shock late 1-0 defeat against Chelsea in Amsterdam a fortnight ago, you might be interested to know that Tuesday’s hosts can be found at 1/1 with Coral to come out on top in midweek.

Lampard’s high-flying starlets

With their shock 1-0 win in Amsterdam epitomizing Chelsea’s recent resurge, the former England midfielder will know that another victory on Tuesday will see them leapfrog Ajax to the top of Group H and pole position.

You might be interested to know that Chelsea can be found at 4/6 with Bet365 to secure a spot in the knockout stage as Group H champions, ahead of the Dutch giants who sit at 7/4.

While Tammy Abraham may have once again found the net at Vicarage Road over the weekend, another one of Lampard’s starlet who has continued to shine heading into November is USA international, Christian Pulisic.

Extending on what is becoming a very eye-catching run after bagging a hat-trick against Burnley last month, the 21-year-old has recorded four goals in his last two Premier League appearances and is pencilled in at 21/10 with Ladbrokes to extend on his tally in midweek.

The former Premier League champions have also been boosted by the news that midfield talisman N’Golo Kante has made a return to training and is in contention to feature at Stamford Bridge.

Ajax’s free-scoring antics

Although Erik ten Hag’s men may have seen Chelsea snatch three Group H points a fortnight ago, last year’s semi-finalists have really bounced back in some style.

Putting four past both PEC Zwolle and former champions Feyenoord, Ajax have won seven of their last eight matches across all formats and have remarkably tasted defeat just once since the 8th of May.

Still seen to be a huge favourite to secure another spot in the knockout stage, fans around Amsterdam should also be boosted by their recent European record on the road.

Landing a 3-0 win away at Valencia last month, the Dutch champions are unbeaten in their last 13 Champions League matches on foreign soil.

While Tuesday’s hosts might have one forward continuing to shine entering November, Ajax have their own starlet who has continued to catch the eye.

Bagging a brace over the weekend, Brazilian youngster David Neres has recorded three strikes in his last two Eredivisie appearances and will once again feature at Stamford Bridge.

You might be interested to know that the 22-year-old can be found at 4/1 with Paddy Power to extend that run in midweek.
