The group H is certainly one of the most balanced preliminary round groups of the Champions League season 2019/20. Chelsea FC seem to have a presumed favorite, while the other three teams all have the potential to join the blues in the last sixteen. In the snapshot after the first matchday, however, the Godenzonen lead the preliminary round group before the Murciélagos.
Valencia vs Ajax Amsterdam Today’s Betting Tips
Both won their first match on the opening day. Should there be a winner in the Estadio Mestalla on the Spanish east coast, he would for now escape the competition and even knock on the knockout round carefully, for which then two further victories from the remaining four games traditionally suffice should.
The match between Valencia and Ajax Amsterdam will be rated as balanced as possible at bookmakers’ odds. Thus, despite the unexpected 1-0 away win at Stamford Bridge, “Los Ches” are by no means the clear favorite, due to two factors.
First, the Godenzons were just in the spring of 2019 in the semifinals of the premier class and failed only very narrowly in the final to the final. And secondly: The Dutch record champions brought to the opening a convincing 3-0 victory over the Lille OSC, which is quite important for the forecast against Valencia at Ajax Amsterdam.
Finally, the four-time overall winner of this competition in the new season continues exactly where he left off last season. Nevertheless, at Valencia against Ajax Amsterdam tip 2 a track is too risky. We therefore opt for a different betting opportunity and rely on the fact that a maximum of one team will score, which we justify more accurately after the form check in the prediction.
Valencia – Statistics & Current Form
After Valencia CF under the surprisingly popular for crowd favorite Marcelino García installed coach Albert Celades could celebrate a not expected in the form 1-0 away win at favorite Chelsea FC, it was now finally in La Liga. After two draws at home against Leganés and Getafe, who, of course, were unable to bring any peace to the club, the dress rehearsal in Bilbao was successful at the weekend. A 1: 0 away win – and thus an exclamation point in the direction of the Godenzonen.
Thus, “Los Ches” have in a turbulent and hectic phase of the season, in which the fourth of the preseason mainly wrote with the events surrounding the dismissal of the coach and the subsequent player and fan boycott headlines, fought a small break, but also stand under pressure again this week.
Not only is it in the premier class nachzulegen, but the home game in La Liga against Alaves is also of immense importance. The bats are in only one win from the last four league games finally only in ninth place and are already four points behind a new starting place for the Champions League.
“The situation is the way it is. Regardless of the external noise, we know the claim. We all want to win, but success can not be forced in football. Internally, we approach things with determination and confidence. ” – Albert Celades at MARCA
Here is Valencia against Ajax Amsterdam according to odds of the bookies quite easily in the role of favorites, but must recover the somewhat lost home strength. In Mestalla, the team is still exposed to the displeasure of the fans, which is directed primarily against owner Peter Lim, who has already installed his eighth coach with Albert Celades within five years. Not to mention the 52 players who came and went in this short term.
Konstanz is what you want with the Murciélagos, who this summer with the overall victory in the Copa del Rey but actually completed one of the most successful seasons of this decade. Twelve of the last 16 international home games at the Estadio Mestalla have also been won. However, the last four games were all lost, while in La Liga at home against Leganés and Getafe the victory remained dear.
