Ajax – Standard Liege will produce another great contest after a beautiful one from the first leg. Ajax will have the first chance after the 2 goals scored away from home but we should not underestimate Standard Liege at all. The game will start at 20:30 and it will take place on Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Ajax started the first leg in a high note but ended it in the worst possible mode. They were leading by 2 goals in the 34th minute and everything seemed to go their way but in the second half they thought that they already won the game. A 94th minute goal conceded from a penalty was the decisive one in that game for Standard Liege because even with a draw it is really hard to turn around a result like this. The hosts need to work on their defensive tactics and maybe in attack too because last time out they only drew with Heracles at home. The only goal was scored by a defender and hopefully the game ended in a 1-1 for the hosts. Now its a much bigger stake but I think they will be just fine.
Standard Liege made the most from their chances in the second half and turned around the result. They were not the favorites for the qualification but it was a good result all things considered. The visitors drew one of the hardest opponents of this stage. Their last result from the weekend against Cercle Brugge wasn’t the brightest as they couldn’t score at least a goal. Now that will be a must, to score at least once because at this result they are already knocked out. With the last result they made it three draws in a row and this one won’t be the game for them to get a win.

Ajax – Standard Liege: Prediction
For this game I can only think of one result, and that is a home win but I also expect a high-scoring contest. Standard Liege will be in attack or at least chasing the opening goal of the game. Liege will succeed with that but the strong attack from Ajax will have much more space and it will be hard for the visitors not to concede at least two just like in the first game. A good bet would be both teams to score but a home win is strongly suggested. With this two combined we can get a lot more and I think we should take advantage of this great odd that we are given.
Prediction: Ajax To Win And Both Teams To Score, Yes, Odds: 2.85
