CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TOP PLAY #3
Atalanta vs. Ajax
Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at 4:00 pm
Atalanta/Ajax is shaping up to be the most intriguing matchup on Tuesday’s matchday, and for good reason. Atalanta’s a scoring machine that has gone unbeaten in 15 of their last 16 home matches in European competition and kicked of their tournament with a 4-0 win over Midtyjlland. On the other hand, Ajax just put up a record 13 goals in their last match against Venlo, and are also no strangers to the big stage in the Champions League, especially away from home, where Ajax picked up seven of a possible nine points in last year’s group stage. Ajax is also unbeaten in their last nine away Champions League matches with six wins and three draws. I’m expecting a back and forth affair here but I also think that both sides will end up settling for a point in a score draw, so I’ll side with the draw and both teams to score as my premium pick for this game.
