Ajax hosts AS Roma in the first leg of the Europa League quarterfinals. The match will be played on Thursday, April 8th at Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam)
Ajax is a regular participant in tournaments held under UEFA auspices. As a rule, the Dutch perform well in the Champions League, but in the 2020/2021 season, they have to end their performances in the second most important club competition in Europe. Ajax took only 3rd place in the group stage of the Champions League but continued to fight in the Europa League knockout rounds. In February, Eric ten Hag's charges beat Lille twice with a total score of 4-2. And they dealt with Young Boys both at home and away in March (5-0 on aggregate). Currently, the Jews are in excellent shape. The team has not lost in all competitions for 24 matches in a row. In this period, Ajax gained 22 victories and tied three times.

Roma is a team that sets a goal to get into the TOP-4 in Serie A and play in the Champions League, but in fact we see its unstable game and performance in the Europa League. Despite weak opponents in the Europa League group stage, the Romans managed to make two misfires, failing to beat CSKA Sofia twice. As for the knockout stage, Paulo Fonseca's charges first beat Braga twice and then punished Shakhtar Donetsk the same number of times. The Wolves’ chances to get into the top four of Serie A are long, so it is worth making every effort to win the Europa League.
We expect scoring football in the upcoming match. Ajax is a top team that rarely misfires and usually wins with large scores at home. Roma is no less experienced team that has great attacking players, but its defense is considered unreliable. After all, the Wolves conceded at least one goal in seven out of ten last matches. Statistics are also in favor of bets on Over 2.5 goals scored. Ajax has not scored less than two goals per game in the current Europa League knockout rounds. And the Jews continue to lead confidently in the Netherlands championship, scoring an average of 3.8 goals per game. If we consider all games, then the proposed outcome took place in 18 out of 25 cases (72%). As for Roma, this figure is close to 70%, and the Italians sent a total of 10 goals to the opponents' net in the two previous rounds. We think that the opponents will please us with spectacular and an abundance of goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
