Champions League Ajax vs Besiktas 9/28/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

Ajax made a tremendous start in the Champions League this season, when they completely dismantled Sporting Lisbon on the road. They will now return home at Amsterdam for their next assignment, where they will play host to Turkish side Besiktas. Besiktas met a tough loss at home against Dortmund in the first match and are coming here with a TON of injury concerns.

Ajax (1-0-0) were spectacular in their away match against Sporting in Match Day 1, destroying their opponents by a massive 5-1. Key man Sebastien Haller scored twice in the first 10 minutes of the match, with Sporting also scoring at the 33rd minute. Ajax were leading by 3-1 at the end of the first half, with Haller scoring 2 more goals in the second half for the final 5-1 triumph. Since then they have played 3 league matches in the Dutch Eredivisie, winning all 3, keeping 3 clean sheets and scoring a whopping 17 goals in the process. This season they have been perfect at home, winning all 4 league matches, keeping 4 clean sheets and scoring at least 3 goals in each match, for a total of 22 goals. 

Besiktas (0-1-0) had made a really good start in the season prior to their match against Dortmund in Match Day 1. However, they easily lost that match by 2-1, scoring their goal at the end of the match which gave them nothing. Since then they have played 3 league matches (1-1-1),  scoring 7 goals and conceding 8 in the process, while conceding 2+ goals in all 3 matches. More importantly, Besiktas are coming into this match with a lot of injury concerns, as 10 players have already been ruled out (with most of their top players included), while one other player is considered as questionable to participate. Besiktas definitely need some points here if they want to avoid the last spot of the group.

Ajax vs Besiktas. Ajax have been firing in all cylinders this season, scoring 3 or more goals in 6 of their 8 matches in league play and the Champions League, while also keeping 6 clean sheets in the process. Besiktas could have possibly challenged them for some points if they were at full health, but the Turks are far from it. Ajax have the potential to destroy any opponent, and this is the worst timing for Besiktas. Taking the Over 3.5 Goals here.
