    Ajax set to seal a place in Champions League play-off

    On Tuesday night, Ajax host Standard Liege at the Johan Cruyff Arena in the Champions League third qualifying round second leg.

    The first leg of this tie finished 2-2 in Liege, so Ajax has the advantage of the two away goals. The Dutch side will be favourites to head through to the play-off round.

    Ajax are unbeaten in five games in the Champions league, having also lost just one of their last nine games in the competition. However, the home side has drawn five games of those nine aforementioned games.

    The team from the Dutch capital have been prolific in the Champions League of late, scoring at least twice in their last four games in Europe’s elite competition.

    The home side are unbeaten in four games on home soil in the Champions league. However, three of those four games have finished in draws. It is interesting to note that both teams have scored in four of Ajax’s last five games in the competition.

    Standard Liege have a poor record in the Champions League, having won just two of their 17 games in the competition since 2006. The Belgium side has also suffered defeats in two of their last three games.

    The visitor’s recent Champions League games have been low scoring with under 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last ten games in the competition.

    The Belgian side has a terrible away record in Europe’s elite competition, winning just one of their eight games on their travels, suffering five defeats in the process.

    Liege have struggled for goals on their travels in the Champions league, failing to score in three of their last four away games, scoring just twice in the process.

    Forebet predicts that Ajax will record the victory they need to progress in a high-scoring encounter.
