Ajax hosts Chelsea in round 3 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 23rd at Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam)
Ajax confidently leads Group H. The Jews won both matches in the Champions League, with 3 goals scored in each. The team of ten Hag also acts in the Eredivisie very well: first position and 31 goals scored in 10 matches (3.1 goals per game, on average). That is, the losses in the offseason did not affect the performances of Ajax. The Jews keep on demonstrating an interesting game, especially in their field: they arrange total dominance, steadily delivering about 20 shots on goal. In the last season, the team of ten Hag played on an equal footing in home games with Bayern, Real Madrid and Juventus and sometimes even took the initiative. And the Jews will surely play openly with Chelsea.

Chelsea continues to gain victory after victory (it has a streak of five victories in a row). Moreover, the Londoners managed to deal with Lille and Southampton away, having scored six goals to their nets, in total. In general, the Blues have no problems in the attack. For example, Frank's men could score more than one goal in a match with Newcastle, but the goalkeeper of the Magpies played great. Hudson-Odoi made assists in the last four matches, and Mount and Abraham scored 13 goals in total. Pulisic also played well. He started the goal attack in the game with Newcastle. Frank's men gradually coordinated, and the result was not long in coming.
Ajax is rightly considered a favorite in the upcoming meeting. The men of ten Hag score at least two goals for seven home games in a row. In general, the last time the Jews did not score in their field was back in February 2018 (20 months ago). And during this period, Ajax scored Bayern (three times) and Tottenham (twice) and sent a goal into the nets of Real and Juventus. Chelsea kept a clean sheet in only two of 13 official games, and they were played at home. Without Kante, the Blues won’t hold back the attack of Ajax. But they may well score two or three goals. Surprisingly, but Lampard's team is more successful outside of Stamford Bridge. Londoners have won four away matches in a row, and they have already hammered 14 goals. As we see, both teams have no problems with the attack, so I’m waiting for at least three goals scored in the upcoming game.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
