Ajax to come through PAOK test

32

Ajax make their first appearance in the Champions League this season on Tuesday when they head to Greece to face PAOK in the third qualifying round.

PAOK v Ajax – Ajax to win and both teams to score @ 3/1

The Dutch giants reached the semi-finals last season, losing dramatically to Tottenham, but they did end the season with two pieces of silverware after topping the Eredivisie and winning the KNVB Cup.

They make their bow in Europe this term with a tricky trip to Greece but are expected to come through the tie unscathed.

After a disappointing start to the domestic season on Saturday, drawing 2-2 at Vitesse Arnhem, Erik ten Haag will be demanding a much-improved performance from his side.

PAOK are yet to play any competitive football in 2019-20 and may be a few steps behind Ajax in terms of fitness. However, they boast an impressive record for scoring on home soil and are likely to notch at least one.

Indeed, you have to go all the way back to October 25 to find the last time they failed to hit the back of the net at Stadio Toumbas.

CFR Cluj v Celtic – Celtic Half Time/Full Time @ 59/20

Celtic’s European campaign started on July 9 away at Sarajevo and they have so far made easy work of their ties.

They brushed aside the Bosnia and Herzegovina outfit 5-2 on aggregate, before easing past Nomme Kalju 7-0 over two legs in the second qualifying round.

Neil Lennon will also have been delighted to see the Hoops pick up a 7-0 victory over St Johnstone in their opening SPL fixture on Saturday.

The Scottish champions are already five games into their competitive campaign and have led at half-time and full-time in four of those, so that looks like a safe option here.
