Betting Tip: Ajax @ 17/20 with bet365

Ajax are always tough cookies on home soil, even if we’re not talking about a team that can hold a candle to the European elite anymore.

The Amsterdam side were narrowly edged out by Rapid Vienna in the Champions League play-offs which means they instead meet Celtic in the Europa League on Thursday and they’re a decent price to land the spoils.

Bet365 offer 17/20 about Ajax triumphing and they have won their two Eredivisie matches by a combined scoreline of 7-0 at home so far.

In addition to thrashing Willem II and Den Haag, they have also landed two victories and a draw on the road, so they’re in pretty good nick, especially after showing character to come from two goals down against FC Twente on Saturday.

As for Celtic, they were also dumped out of the Champions League at the play-off stage, with Malmo accounting for them and the Scottish champions lost at Aberdeen on Saturday.

The Hoops have been drawn with Ajax, Molde and Fenerbahce in this section and should have a chance if their home form can stand up, although the visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet in seven games and they could struggle to contain the promising Anwar El Ghazi who has six on the board so far.
