Ajax vs Atalanta Prediction & Tips
For the second consecutive year, Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta arrives at the sixth and final day of the Champions League group stage to play all out in qualifying for the round of 16 of the competition. The Nerazzurri did not play in Udine in the last round of the championship due to a storm and this certainly gave a big hand in a period of such close commitments. Erik ten Hag, Ajax coach, also knows that the goal is precious, who in the last round of the championship lost an incredible 1-2 at home to Twente. And thanks to the knockout of the hosts in the last round of the Champions League against Liverpool, Atalanta shows up at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam with a point advantage and will be able to afford to win or even just to draw.
Atalanta have won the previous two Champions League matches played away: 0-4 against Midtjylland and 0-2 against Liverpool.
In the first leg direct match in Bergamo the result was 2-2.
Ajax have lost the last 2 official matches played between the Champions League and the Eredivisie.
Atalanta did not play in the last weekend and certainly arrive at this challenge more rested.
