Aston Villa vs Ajax Match Preview and Prediction

Aston Villa vs AjaxIn the last nine games across all competitions, Villa has scored three goals or more eight times. Over their past two away Eredivisie games, Ajax have allowed five goals. This UEFA Conference League season, the Villains have won all four of their home games.

On Thursday night, Aston Villa will play Ajax in the second leg of the UEFA Conference League last-16 round, trying to forget their 0-4 loss to Tottenham. The Villains have been a strong force in Birmingham this season, but Spurs, their top-four rivals, defeated them on Sunday afternoon.

After losing to Tottenham, Villa won three straight Premier League games. The Lions have a game in hand but are only two points ahead of the Spurs in the domestic league.Ajax’s terrible Eredivisie campaign continued on Sunday with a 2-2 draw with Fortuna Sittard.

In the Dutch Premier Division, De Godenzonen is now sixth, up to 29 points behind PSV. In the previous Conference League round, Johannes van ‘t Schip’s team had to defeat Norwegian team Bodo/Glimt with an extra-time winner.

Aston Villa vs Ajax: Betting Analysis

Seven days ago in Amsterdam, the reverse game was scoreless. Just once before last week’s match, these teams played. In the 2008/09 UEFA Europa League group stage, Aston Villa won 2-1 at home.Both teams were cautious in the first leg. We were surprised by these two sides’ three shots in a goalless draw in Amsterdam last week. The rematch should be different.

Villa needs to get back on track after losing 0-4 to the Spurs over the weekend. Attacking football has become the norm since the new year. Eight of their previous nine matches in all competitions had at least three goals. The one exception was last week’s goalless draw in Holland.

Ajax’s Eredivisie tie with Fortuna Sittard last weekend was 2-2. In their knockout playoff meetings versus Bodo/Glimt, both teams scored. Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.53 odds is our main bet.The villa is good. They won all four Conference League home games this season. Unai Emery’s team lost at Tottenham on Sunday after a three-game Premier League streak.

In their Europa League group, Ajax finished with one point from three away games. They lost 0-2 to Brighton in England last October. Recent form for Ajax has been poor. The last two domestic league matches on the road were losses for De Godenzonen. The 2.10 odds favor Aston Villa to lead at halftime and win the match.
