Here is our soccer prediction with review for 21.08.2018.
In one of the Champions League playoffs we will see a clash between the Ajax and Dynamo Kiev teams. Both teams have two matches to determine which of them will be in the group stage of the race. Ajax hosts the first match, while the match rematch is after a week in Ukraine.
News for the Dutch
Ajax has begun his participation in this year’s Champions League second round of the Preliminary Round. In it the Dutch team met the team of Sturm Graz, winning both of their matches. There were two matches with Belgian Standard Liege in which the first finished 2-2, and Ajax won a rematch home 3-0. Meanwhile, the team also played 2 matches from Dutch Eredivisie, in which they registered a draw and a victory. The statistics for the last 6 games of the season since the beginning of the season show 4 wins and 2 draws. Coach Eric Ten Hag will not be able to count on the injured Bande, Veltman and Cerny. Dolberg, Neres and Sinkgravens are in question.
The news of the Ukrainian team
Dynamo Kyiv has begun his participation in a round after Ajax. Dynamo started in a third round in which he met Slavia Prague. The visit to Dinamo in the first game ended 1-1, but Dinamo Kiev won 2-0 in the draw and thus secured a place in the playoffs. The Ukrainian Championship has also begun, with Dynamo running without a mistake so far. Since the beginning of the season, Kiev has recorded 6 wins and 1 draw in all matches. There are also serious absences from the squad, so Alexander Katcekevich will be able to bet on the best of his squad.
Ajax vs. Dynamo Kiev – statistics
The two teams have met again at this stage of the Champions League. In the 2010/2011 season, they stood up among themselves in the playoffs. Then the first match was in Ukraine and finished 1-1, while Ajax won 2-1 on the draw. Now the Dutch team will have the chance to host the first match. The hosts have some question marks, but the team still has a long enough bench to come out fully combatable in this game. Dynamo Kyiv has been moving greatly since the start of the season and the goal will now be to join the Champions League. However, we think Ajax is the team with better chances. The Dutch are pretty good when playing at home in the European Tournaments, so we expect them to take advantage of the match. As a second option you can try over 2.5 goals in the game.
Soccer prediction for Ajax – D.Kyiv – Home -0.5 or Over 2.5 goals
