Ajax vs Chelsea Match Preview
Ajax have essentially picked up where they left off last season in the serious phase of the Champions League, but face their biggest test of Group H so far against Chelsea.
The Dutch champions famously knocked out Real Madrid and Juventus in the knockout stage last term before getting to within seconds of the final only to heartbreakingly concede a last-gasp clincher for Tottenham – and they have started this group campaign very promisingly.
Despite only scraping through their opening qualifier against PAOK Salonika, Ajax have got into their stride very nicely both domestically and in Europe. They have won both matches so far 3-0, at home to Lille and away to Valencia, with Quincy Promes scoring in each game.
