Ajax will be hosting Benfica in the Champions League 2021-22 as two unfancied teams continue their journey in the tournament. Benfica was never really supposed to have qualified from a group that also contained Bayern Munich and Barcelona, however, they were there to take advantage when Barcelona slipped up.
Ajax had a more straightforward and expected journey into the last-16. In terrific form and with a manager that seems to be linked with a move to Manchester United soon, Ajax is certainly the team expected to win this encounter. All the football betting sites are offering some pretty short odds for Ajax to win this match and we don't see a reason to disagree with that assessment.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Ajax vs Benfica UEFA Champions League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam, Netherlands on the 15th of March 2022.
Benfica is up against a very tough task in this contest and we think it is going to suffer. Ajax has been in tremendous form in its home league where it leads comfortably and has also conceded the fewest goals. Add that with the fact that Ajax has scored 20 goals in the group stag of the Champions League already and you have a team that is firing on all cylinders.
Benfica took advantage of an out of form Barcelona but we don't think they will have the same opportunity in this encounter.
Bet on Ajax Amsterdam to win.
The odds available for Both Teams Not to score in this match are surprisingly good considering the kind of defense that Ajax has shown this season. We think Benfica is likely to be a bit circumspect in this contest and is likely to hold back to avoid conceding too many goals.
We forsee a low-scoring game where Ajax wins but Benfica fails to get on the board.
