Reason For Lille vs Ajax Betting Tips

Lille have had a really poor Champions League campaign, picking up a solitary point, and being unable to qualify for the knockout stages. Even their passage to the Europa League looks incredibly unlikely with the side needing to win their final two games, needing at least one other side in the group to lose both of their games and overturn a 7 goal deficit. It doesn’t look likely that Lille will be in continental competition after Christmas. 

The French side have certainly had chances, averaging 4.5 shots on target per match but they’ve only scored three and have, defensively, been awful with 10 goals conceded in four matches. There isn’t much confidence within the side and without much to play for it’s hard to see how Lille can come out of the game with a positive result. 

Ajax, on the other hand, have had a great campaign so far, at least in front of goal. They’ve had 3-0 wins over both Lille and Valencia and their 4-4 draw with Chelsea in the last matchweek showcased both their attacking prowess and defensive frailties. The goals they have scored have put them top of the group but their qualification is by no means assured with both Chelsea and Valencia sitting on 7 points with the Dutch champions. 

The attacking talent on display for Ajax should be enough to see the game beat the 2.5 goal line and with Lille having plenty of chances so far this should see the line beaten with some ease. We’re certainly anticipating plenty of goals in this one. 

Ajax should be the team to benefit from the open game most with the visitors looking to give themselves a big advantage heading into the final round of games and we think they should have enough to pick up a comfortable win, with a 3-1 result predicted. They aren’t the best defensively though and we can see them conceding but a win by two clear goals seems fair between these two sides.
