      Tip Reasoning

      When the groups were drawn, this clash between Turkish side Fenerbahce and Dutch side Ajax might have been billed as a battle between the top two sides in the group. Instead, it’s a clash between third and fourth place, and a defeat for either side would be a serious problem.

      Fenerbahce, normally such a strong side at home, were thrashed 3-1 in their opening group game by Norwegian side Molde. They played much better on their trip to Celtic, a 2-2 draw was a pretty good result, but it still leaves them in a tricky position heading into the game against Ajax.

      Ajax are at the top of the Dutch Eredivisie and they are favourites to regain that title. They earned a big away win at the weekend beating Heracles 2-0. Still, their form in European football so far this season has been poor. They crashed out of Champions League qualifying and they’ve now been held to draws by Celtic and Molde. Both teams need a big win.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Attack is the best form of defence

      For both of these teams, their best form of defence is to attack and use their talent going forward. We don’t expect either team to post a “shutout”, they’re both a little too susceptible to defensive lapses.

      2. Fenerbahce regain home form

      The Turkish side actually played very well against Celtic and deserved their 2-2 draw. We think they’ll pick up their home form in this crucial game.

      3. Ajax defensive frailty

      It’s always a concern with Dutch sides, both national and domestic, they play an attractive brand of football, but they open themselves up to conceding goals. This is a strong Ajax side, but they’ve still got that little bit of defensive weakness.
