In-form Ajax Amsterdam look for the seventh win in a row in match with visitors from neighbors Belgium.
Ajax take on the visitors Standard Liege in the round 2 match of the Europa League group stage. The match will be played at Amsterdam Arena on Thursday, September 29th.
Ajax won their six matches in a row after they got eliminated from the Champions League, including 2-1 win over Panathinaikos on round 1 of the Europa League group stage. Moreover, they allowed only two goals and score 18 goals in these six matches. Bitter home loss to Willem was followed with three home wins with 11-1 on aggregate. Such impressive conditions make Amsterdam side one of contenders for the place in the knockout stage.
Standard Liege begun their path in the group stage with 1-1 home draw with Celta Vigo. However, Standard show opposite results at home and on the road. While the Belgian side is undefeated at own stadium since the beginning of February, recent six away fixtures got the visiting side only one win with tow draws and three defeats with goal conceded in five of these six matches.
Upcoming clash will be the first ever match between the opponents. Considering recent results of the hosts and quite average results of the Belgian team in away games, we should expect nothing but Ajax seventh win in a row.
Prediction for the match: Ajax to win.
