In the last Champions League season PSG were a team with great ambitions, but after an oversight from their part they ended up eliminated in the quarterfinals by the away goals rule. This year PSG were pitted against Ajax, which means the champions of their respective competitions get to fight for three points.
The hosts have nine points from their five matches in Erredivisie and their latest result is a 2-1 win over Heracles which has put the team in good mood. The three points will be vital should they survive the group with Barcelona and Apoel. While many may discard the hosts from the start the thing to remember would be that Ajax managed to beat Barca at home last season which makes them dangerous. Against them speaks the fact that they have not qualified from the group stage since 2005 and like all the teams were hit by injuries, the longest one being the one of Viktor Fisher since February.
PSG’s latest result is a 1-1 draw against Rennes. Laurent Blanc announced that David Luiz and Serge Aurier have been cleared to travel to Amsterdam, while Thiago Silva is yet to recover from his thigh injury. The champions are currently residing on the second place in Ligue 1, two points behind Lille, and considering their squad they deserve more than a draw against Ajax. Ibrahimovic is once again tipped to score and the wincast market for him to score and PSG to win is at 2.55 with Unibet.
The bookmakers favor the French team to win at 1.72, while Ajax gets 5.00 and a draw is at 3.85. An odd number of goals is at 1.94, Marco Verratti to get booked at 2.30 and over 1.5 goals in the first half is at 2.70. We are betting 7 units on the visitors to score in both halves at 2.65 with Unibet.
