Ajax vs Napoli Predictions

  • No side has stopped Ajax from scoring in any game this season.
  • Napoli found the net in all but one of their competitive games this season.
  • Napoli have never won a UEFA sanctioned game away to Dutch opponents (D2, L2).

Can Ajax bounce back to form?

Following a stunning start to life in the Ajax hotseat, manager Alfred Schreuder has overseen three straight winless games (D1, L2). That run culminated in a 1-1 draw against Go Ahead Eagles at the weekend in what was perhaps the shock of the weekend across Europe as Ajax failed to win at odds of 1/11!

The hosts at least managed to get on the scoresheet as they have done in every competitive encounter this season, including at least four scored goals in three of their last six encounters.

Ajax have a mixed record in 49 previous UEFA encounters with Italian opponents (W13, D18, L18), which suggests that can indeed hold their own in their first such encounter with Napoli. The sides faced off the now defunct Inter Cities Fairs Cup, but this will be the first meeting in modern UEFA competition.

Spalletti looks to make history

Currently on a run of 14 games without defeat, Napoli are just five games away from matching their club record of unbeaten matches set back in 2017. However they will need to pick up a positive result here to continue that, which could be easier said than done considering that they’ve never won an away H2H with Dutch opponents (D2, L2).

It is tough to back against Napoli at the moment though, with an unbeaten record and the fact that they found the net in all but one of their games this season inspiring confidence that they’ll give as much as they get from Ajax in this encounter.

We predict that this will be an exciting encounter between two cracking teams and as such, we’re going for BTTS & over 2.5 total goals. As for the correct score, a high-scoring 2-2 draw is the way we’re playing this.
