Atalanta vs Ajax Match Preview and Team News
Atalanta is one of the most entertaining sides in European football and has been impressive this season. They have won four of their six competitive matches this season, losing the other two. Importantly, these six matches aggregated 31 goals in total, with Atalanta scoring 19 and conceding 12. In their debut Champions League season last year, Atalanta had a dream campaign reaching the quarter-finals before bowing down to eventual finalists Paris Saint-Germain. Barring that, Atalanta has won five of their last six Champions League matches and will look to continue that form. Midfielder Marten de Roon found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the game on the field, and it’s hard to take the ball away from this guy. Pasalic enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Duvan Zapata scored 18 goals in Serie A and one goal in the Champions League last season, he is fast, he has reasonable ball control, and many clubs are ready to give a fortune for his arrival. He is a player for great deeds.
Ajax topped the Dutch league and had that crazy 13-0 away win on Saturday. They are so inconsistent though, two of their last four games have been lost without scoring, and the other two saw them win and score 18 goals. Their away form in the Champions League is highly impressive, with no losses in the last 15 games played over the past four years. That run has included wins against Juventus, Tottenham, and Real Madrid. Ajax has a lot of young players and one of the best schools in the world. Jurgen Ekkelenkamp has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Dušan Tadić is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. Quincy Promes plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
