ajax vs lille Tip Reason:

Ajax earned comparisons with Monaco thanks to last season’s Champions League run. They’ll be hoping the similarities between the two semi-finalists end there, given how badly Monaco performed in Europe the following season. Have Ajax done enough over the summer to secure a winning start in their first match back in European football? Ironically, it’s French opposition up first for the Dutch giants. They will still be a little hurt by their exit to Tottenham last term, but the Eredivisie champions earned a lot of plaudits along the way. While they have seen some summer changes, they’ve managed to hold onto many key members of last season’s side. They now face a huge test of their character in this clash with Lille. The French side shocked many in Ligue 1 with their strong season, having been fired on by Nicolas Pepe. However, the winger’s departure to Arsenal has hit Lille hard ahead of their return to Champions League football. The visitors also aren’t helped by the fact that manager Christophe Galtier has never managed in this competition before. While Ajax were raided in the summer, the big question mark here surround Lille. A side who were fired on by Pepe’s goals could look short here, especially after starting with back to back away defeats in Ligue 1. They have kicked off with three wins in five, with 100% of their points coming at home. Meanwhile, Ajax have made an excellent start in the Eredivisie this term. The Dutch side have won four of their five games so far, which has put them top of the pile. Despite their semi-final run last term, they had to make it through two qualifying rounds to make it this far. Having scored twice in three of the four games, the Amsterdam side are in fine form up front ahead of this clash. Ajax have scored at least four goals in their last four league games, while they will take confidence from their European run last season. We expect them to see off a struggling Lille side who have little know-how at this level. Given their respective results of late, we see value in backing Ajax to win with over 2.5 goals in the match, with both teams scoring in 10 of their last 15 Champions League matches. We’re also going with a 3-1 win for Ajax, given how brilliant their Eredivisie scoring record has been so far this season.
