Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Buoyed by a record-breaking 13-0 win over Venlo in Eredivisie, Ajax take on Atalanta at Gewiss Stadium in the Champions League group stages round 2. The Amsterdammers are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Bergamo, and seeing that they were unfortunate not to grab something from their opener against Liverpool, we predict that they are capable of matching the Orobici behind closed doors.
New signing Mohammed Kudus is the only absentee in the away team. Atalanta, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from the Serie A loss to Sampdoria (1-3). The Orobici rolled over Midtjylland 4-0 in their Champions League opener, and given Ajax’s attacking potential, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. The likes of Caldara, Carnesecchi, Gollini, and Piccini are all likely to miss Tuesday’s football match through injury for the hosts.
