Our prediction for this Champions League match:
All eyes will be on Johan Cruijff Arena when Ajax and Atalanta go head to head in the Group D decider. A win over Atalanta will see Ajax book their place in the last 16 of the elite competition, and we are positive that the Amsterdammers will go all guns blazing at the Orobici. Keep in mind, though, that Traore, Mazraoui, Neres, and Kudus are all likely to miss Wednesday’s showdown with injury.
The Serie A outfit, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Midtjylland in their last group game. Atalanta were not in action at the weekend as the match with Udinese was postponed. The Orobici do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Amsterdam, and even though Ajax boss Erik ten Hag has some selection worries, home win should be considered. The likes of Caldara, Miranchuk, Pasalic, and Mojica are all sidelined with injury, while Gosens has been tested positive for coronavirus.
