Ajax hosts PAOK in a second leg from the third round of the Champions League
Ajax hosts PAOK in a second leg from the third round of the Champions League qualifiers. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Johan Cruijff Arena in our vip football prediction tips.
The first leg in Thessaloniki offered some great emotions, because we saw four goals being scored. The game ended with a 2-2 draw, which gives Ajax some slight advantage before the second leg. But most certainly PAOK managed to keep their chances of progression, although it’s going to be very difficult for them in Amsterdam.
At halftime PAOK had an advantage in the result. Hakim Ziyech opened the score for the Dutch side, but the hosts managed to turn it around. Arsenal’s ex-striker Chuba Akpom equalised, while Leo Matos made it 2-1 for the Greeks.
Sadly for the fans at the Stadio Toumbas, PAOK were unable to keep their advantage. Soon after the start of the second half, the veteran striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar put the ball behind Alexandros Paschalakis’ back and scored for Ajax.
Because the Greek Super League 1 is still about to begin, PAOK had a better rest than their opponents. They didn’t have a game during the weekend, which is good for them.
Meanwhile Ajax had to play in the Eredivisie. Erik ten Hag’s team hosten Emmen in a game from the second round of the league, enjoying a crushing 5-0 win at home. Klaas Jan Huntelaar scored a brace for the champions, while Donny van de Beek, Hakim Ziyech and Dusan Tadic also scored for their team.
These are our vip football prediction tips for the Champions League qualifying game between Ajax and PAOK. We won’t surprise you by telling you that Ajax are a huge favourite here, especially after the result in the first leg. But PAOK are the champions of Greece, so they deserve some respect as well.
