AJAX vs STANDARD LIEGEPREDICTION ANALYSIS
Ajax and Standard Liege played to an exciting 2-2 draw in the first leg in Belgium. This matchup now shifts to the Netherlands as Ajax are the hosts in this one. Since Ajax managed a 2 goal road draw Standar Liege knows that they will either have to win or score at least 2 goals in a draw. This will cause Standard Liege to open up more than they did in the first leg when they put 18 shots towards goal and scored twice. Ajax just needs to win or draw (while keeping Standard Liege to less than 2 goals) to advance. Ajax does not seem like the team that will sit back and defends in this situation. They have been having problems at the back. They have conceded in 10 of their last 11 games leading me to believe they are more likely to try and put Standard Liege away early. This will cause them to open up more on defense leading to more chances for Standard Liege. I see this one being played much like the first leg with teams trading chances and lots of goals scored. Backing Standard Liege to score is the best bet for this game because of how hard they will need to push to advance.
SCORE PREDICTION: AJAX 2 – 1 STANDARD LIEGE
