Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Something has to give way when the first two of Group C meet Champions League on Tuesday, as Ajax welcome Borussia Dortmund to Amsterdam.

Both teams got the maximum number of points from their first two games against Beskitas and Sporting and will therefore face each other in the first of consecutive games that could determine their fate.


Prediction for this match

While on the opening night a 5-1 win at Sporting – in that Sebastian Haller scored four goals – made Europe sit up and take notice of Ajax’s attacking strength Erik ten Hag‘s side.

Their Ivory Coast striker scored again last time in the Johan Cruijff ArenA, helping his team to a second win in a row and establishing himself as the competition’s top scorer to date. The score barely told the story of their dominance over the Turkish champions, with Ajax rattling off 23 shots on goal and holding 71% of the ball.

With its 17th appearance in the group stage – a new Dutch record, one ahead of old rivals PSV – this year’s campaign marks the fourth appearance in a row in the actual Champions League for a club that has recently re-established itself among the continent’s elite Has. after several years without much success.

After a rare setback in the Eredivisie shortly before the international break, the Amsterdam team got back on track with Heerenveen at the weekend. David Neres sealed the deal towards the end of the game.

With this win, they are at the forefront of Dutch football and are still well positioned to take their third title in a row next spring. However, Ajax have qualified only once from their Champions League group in the last eight games in the competition and reached the semi-finals in 2018/19.

Last season third in their section for the second time in a row, Ten Hag’s team is now facing a double header against Dortmund, which could bring them into the knockout phase if they cut off early this week and in the second leg next month.

Although their winning streak may have ended in the last seven games, Ajax should prove to be a test prospect for Dortmund in the clubs’ first competitive game since 2012 on Tuesday.

Before this meeting around nine years ago, these two big names in European football met in the quarter-finals in 1996 when goals from Edgar Davids and Patrick Kluivert brought the defending champions a win in the first leg in Dortmund before underpinning it with a 1-0 win in the second leg in Amsterdam.

Of course, almost a year after this defeat, BVB won the trophy for the only time in their history, and their quest for fame next spring in St. Petersburg has started this season with great style.

Marco Roses team started their season with an away win against Besiktas in the first round before displacing Sporting in late September. While the Portuguese champions made life difficult for the Black and Yellows in a somewhat rough encounter, the former PSV man was Donyell paintHis first goal in Dortmund colors finally separated the teams.

As the top scorer in last season’s Champions League, Malen’s fellow striker Erling Haaland The sought-after striker also scored ten goals in his eight appearances at Besiktas last month before being injured on matchday two.

The Norwegian leads a fearsome attacking unit for BVB, who scored 22 goals in their first eight Bundesliga games, including three in Saturday’s loss to Mainz, where they are just behind Bayern Munich in the table. However, Rose’s team is also defensively vulnerable and has conceded more goals than three players in the league’s last five.

Such a combination gives the neutrals hope that their upcoming 180 minutes against Ajax will bring many goals and leave millions of football fans in armchairs on their seats.

During Erik ten Hag again Sean Klaiber with a knee injury on Tuesday, experienced goalkeeper only Maarten Stekelenburg will join him on the sidelines as he has a groin issue that has been holding him back lately. Thirty-seven year old reserve Remko Pasveer is therefore likely to remain Ajax’s last line of defense since André Onana still serving a nine-month suspension that will not end until next month.

As at the weekend, Sebastien Haller will lead the Dutch champions, supported by an attacking trio of club captains Dusan Tadic, Steven Berghuis and Brazil national team Antonyreturning to the first XI.

Dortmund, meanwhile, welcomed the much-missed Erling Haaland on Saturday after his injury when he scored a brace in the win over Mainz – just an hour ago with a goal before doubling his record in stoppage time – and he will start again in Amsterdam.

Marco Rose, however, has a number of other absentee and long-term injuries Soumaila Coulibaly, Mateu Morey and Dan-Axel Zagadou were recently on the sidelines of Raphael Guerreiro.

The full-back of the Portuguese international Marcel Schmelzer just made a comeback after a long layoff of its own, so Nico Schulz will appear on the left side of a sometimes shaky back four. Up on the field, both of you Mahmoud Dahoud and Giovanni Reyna remain dubious and teenage sensation Youssoufa Moukoko will surely miss it.

Julian Brandt It is expected that it will give way to the more defensive minded Axel Witsel in the central midfield, but could still be offered a more advanced role while Thorgan danger can come into play for Donyell Malen on the left flank.

Ajax possible starting line-up:
Pasveer; Mazraoui, Wood, Martinez, Blind; Gravenberch, Alvarez; Antony, Berghuis, Tadic; Haller

Borussia Dortmund possible starting line-up:
Kobel; Meunier, Akanji, Hummels, Schulz; Bellingham, Witsel; Reus, Brandt, danger; Haaland

Probability: Ajax 2-1 Borussia Dortmund

Home advantage and an abundance of attack opportunities can help Ajax capitalize on their guests’ defensive deficits this week and claim a decisive victory that would already put them within reach of qualifying.

Dortmund is a threat of its own during the break, but can be caught in the advance and picked up by the suspicious front men of the hosts in large areas.
