Fenerbahce vs Ajax Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of the most interesting matches in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night, Fenerbahce take on Ajax.
Fenerbahce didn’t make the good start in Europa League this season and after two rounds they are standing at the bottom of the table, but despite that fact they still can reach the position which leads in the knock-out phase. In order to achieve that goal they have to make positive result against Ajax. Their recent form is not at the high level. Turkish side have managed to won only two of their last six matches in all competitions.
Their coach Vítor Pereira is not satisfied with their team’s performance. “It’s like we are two distinct teams. One is enthusiastic, ambitious and plays entertaining football, creating lots of chances and keeping pressure on opponents; the other is nervous, loses composure after conceding and throws in the towel under pressure.” – said Pereira to the UEFA official website.
For the upcoming weekend Fenerbahce will play the big derby in Turkish Superliga against Galatasaray, so I believe that they will think more about that match than on this one.
Ajax also failed to win this season in Europa League, but on the other side they haven’t lost yet (0-2-0), so they are looking for their first win in this competition. In Dutch league they are playing very good and after nine rounds they are standing at the top of the table. Visitors have very good attack. They scored at least one goal in their last eight matches in all competitions. Interesting fact about Ajax is that they’ve won all eight of their previous matches against Turkish teams, so they hope that continue that tradition against Fenerbahce.
