Ajax made a statement of intent when thrashing Sporting Lisbon on Matchday 1 and are expected to make short work of Besiktas in Amsterdam.
The visitors have already lost at home to Borussia Dortmund in Group C and look one of the weakest teams in this season’s Champions League.
We’re going with the Dutch giants to win both halves at 21/20 for our first Ajax vs Besiktas prediction.
A Look At Ajax’s Betting Odds
Sebastian Haller had a night to remember when scoring four goals as Ajax romped to an amazing 5-1 win over Sporting in Portugal.
The former West Ham forward benefited from some superb support play by Brazilian winger Antony at Estadio Jose Alvalade.
Steven Berghuis finished off a fine move for the other goal, although it should be noted that Sporting could easily have netted at least three times themselves.
However, Erik ten Hag must be excited by the form shown by his team so far, with 30 goals struck in seven Eredivisie fixtures.
On home turf, they have claimed four consecutive victories by an aggregate score of 22-0 following Saturday’s 3-0 defeat of FC Groningen.
Looking at the Ajax vs Besiktas odds, we like 6/1 for a repeat of that scoreline here.
A Look At Besiktas’ Betting Odds
Besiktas started brightly enough when hosting Dortmund, with on-loan Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi having a fierce early shot saved.
However, Borussia then took charge before half-time in Istanbul, with England midfielder Jude Bellingham on target prior to setting up Erling Haaland.
The Turkish outfit did manage a consolation goal in stoppage time via Francisco Montero’s excellent header but this promises to be a tough pool for Sergen Yalcin’s side.
Besiktas hit the ground running on the domestic front this term, dropping just two points in their first five Super Lig matches.
However, they let a 3-0 lead slip when drawing at home to Adana Demirspor a week ago and went down 2-1 at Altay on Friday.
Late goals hurt them in both games and 10/11 they concede between 75:01 minutes and full-time again here completes our Ajax vs Besiktas betting tips.
AJAX 3-0 FC Groningen – Edson Alvarez, Antony, Noussair Mazraoui
