Valencia vs Ajax Amsterdam: Match preview
In the first round, both teams won without a received goal, so now the duel of Valencia and Ajax was rightly declared a derby. Valencia had a more difficult task and they defeated Chelsea in London, while Ajax defeated Lille in front of their fans.
Ajax, who is the leader of Eredivisie, goes much better in the domestic championships, with Valencia in the middle of the Primera table. Seventeen years ago, these rivals played 1-1 at Mestalla.
Valencia team news:
When it comes to the Champions League, it couldn’t have started better for Valencia. They beat the group’s first favorite Chelsea away 1-0 and this is a really big step towards the next round.
They have a lot more problems in the Primera and they have a hard time winning, though they have two of them. They made the second one on Saturday at an unpleasant away game at Athletic in Bilbao and again, as in London, it was 1-0.
They achieved that triumph after two draws, meaning they have not been defeated in a long time. Injuries are becoming more serious, with Soler, Piccini, Gaya and Gameiro on the list, and Garay is now in doubt.
Probable starting lineup: Cillessen – Wass, G.Paulista, Diakhaby, J.Costa – Coquelin, Parejo, Kondogbia, Guedes – Maxi Gomez, Rodrigo
Ajax Amsterdam team news:
Ajax still do not know what the defeat is this season. It is clear that they have to be satisfied with their performance so far. They started the Champions League with a sure and convincing win over Lille in the first round, when they celebrated 3-0 at home.
It should not be forgotten that Ajax also played two rounds and also did not lose, as in eight championship rounds. With six wins they have two draws, one of which was played in Eindhoven against PSV. They have no injury problems and the best team will be on the field.
Probable starting lineup: Onana – Dest, Veltman, Blind, Tagliafico – van de Beek, Martinez – Ziyech, Promes, Neres – Tadić
Both teams have three points each and can play a little more relieved. That could bring open play on both sides. Of course, this means there should be goals. Ajax plays for more goals anyway, so Valencia could accept the rally.
