Ajax vs Aston Villa Match Preview and Prediction

Ajax vs Aston Villa: On Saturday afternoon, Aston Villa held off a late Luton charge to win three crucial points at Kenilworth Road. Lucas Digne, a replacement, scored the game’s final goal to help Villa maintain a five-point lead over Spurs in the Premier League’s race for the top four.

Now, the Villains are headed to Amsterdam on a three-game winning streak. They play Ajax on Thursday night at Johan Cruijff Arena in the highly anticipated first leg of the UEFA Conference League R16 match. The favorites for the two legs and for the entire match are Villa. But can they defend it on the field?

On Sunday afternoon, Ajax defeated Utrecht by the same score to avenge their 0-2 loss at AZ. The Johaness van ‘t Schip-led team is sixth in the Eredivisie table after 24 rounds of competition. Ajax aren’t good enough or consistent enough to compete at the highest level.
