Rangers vs Ajax – On Tuesday night at Ibrox Stadium, Rangers and Ajax will play their final games of the Champions League. Ajax will probably continue their European odyssey in the UEFA Europa League knockout round, while Rangers must divert their attention to the domestic leagues.
One of the worst surprises in this season’s UEFA Champions League has been the Scottish team. Being the runners-up in the UEFA Europa League the previous year, they entered the premier European competition with great expectations.
But the difficult group did have an effect, as Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team dropped all five games, managing just one goal in the process.
The Gers are obviously not capable of playing at this level right now. After five games, they have a poor goal differential of 1-19.
Theoretically, they could beat Ajax here with a victory and a goal differential of five or more, although it is extremely unlikely (but not impossible) that this will happen.
But with just three points from five games, Ajax also fell short. To see if their manager Alfred Schreuder will rest his key players for the crucial Dutch derby against PSV the following weekend will be quite intriguing.
We may anticipate a goal fest regardless of the starting lineup, though, given that five of Ajax’s last six games across all competitions have featured at least five goals.
Rangers vs Ajax – Betting Analysis
Prior to their match in September in Amsterdam, these two teams had not recently faced one another. On this occasion, Ajax celebrated a crushing 4-0 victory.
Given what we have seen from Rangers thus far in the season, it is simple to understand why the bookmakers have Ajax pegged as very substantial road favourites. Nevertheless, we think the value is with the home team at the 3.80 odds since we don’t anticipate Ajax to play here with their greatest lineup (with the clash against PSV in mind).
We will take the 5.50 odds offered for Home victory & Overt 2.5 goals FT bet because we anticipate Rangers to at least have a desire to win the last game in front of the home crowd in this competition. If you’re after correct score choices, you might take the outrageous 29.00 odds on the Rangers to win 3-1.
