      Ajax vs Molde Predictions

      An away win over Celtic has given Ajax some life in the race to qualify from the Europa League, but they are still relying on a little bit of help to get over the line. Meanwhile, Molde enter the match-up top of the group and guaranteed to finish in the top two.

      Ajax have struggled to win games in the Europa League despite producing strong form in Dutch Eredivisie action. They were held to a 1-1 draw in Norway in the second game of group action and they just haven’t managed to build up any sort of rhythm or form in midweek action.

      They face a Molde side with qualification already wrapped up. They didn’t do Ajax any favours in the last round of games losing 2-0 at home against Fenerbache. That result gave the Turkish side the advantage heading into the final round of games.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Asian Handicap is too good to resist

      They did lose their last game at home against Fenerbache and they’re still deserving underdogs playing away from home against the Dutch league leaders. However, we’re getting them on what is effectively a two-goal handicap, they have a solid defensive structure and should keep this game competitive.

      2. Ajax in Europe

      There are some things that are true, but inexplicable. Why have Ajax performed so poorly in European competition this season, while dominating the Dutch Eredivisie? They just haven’t looked like the same team and victory over Celtic is not enough to convince us that they are ready to storm to victory in this match-up.

      3. Pressure of competition

      We’re expecting this to be a well-played and tight match-up. It’s the final round of qualifying and there’s plenty of pressure, which should mean it stays close and within the Asian Handicap.
