Lille vs Ajax Prediction & Tips
The fact that Lille are ousting Paris Saint-Germain’s “Martians” from the top of the French league table speaks volumes about the character and technical qualities of this team. Ajax, therefore, are warned. Although the Lancers have been “relegated” from the most prestigious Champions League, going to play in Lille will be anything but simple. It must be said that the Dutch are more used to certain challenges, but the same could be said of Milan, which even against the French did not manage to win either the first leg or the return. In short, Ajax are favorites, as it should be, but Lille are by no means an opponent to be underestimated …
Not surprisingly, until the last of the elimination round the French were in the lead in the group, then Milan overtook the last corner …
Milan which, however, against Lille ran into a sensational and indisputable defeat at San Siro: the final result was 0-3.
Nor did the Rossoneri manage to conquer Pierre-Mauroy on the return leg, tearing only a draw (2-2).
Between Ligue 1 and the French Cup, Lille have not conceded a single goal in the last six games played (and only one in the last eight)!
Ajax’s defense has also been performing optimally lately: only three goals conceded in the last seven.
It will probably be a more balanced match than the odds suggest, because Lille have already shown that they can stand up to opponents on paper that are more rated. The recent performances of the two defenses lead us to choose the Under 1.5 in the first half.
