Ajax vs Napoli preview & prediction

Match preview

The UEFA Champions League returns this week with another match as Napoli battles with Ajax in Group A at the Amsterdam Arena tonight.

Napoli are currently top of the Serie A table and have been in excellent form so far this season. 

This Napoli side beat Torino comfortably 3-1 in their previous match and are looking to achieve a similar result when they visit Amsterdam.

Domestically, they have the best offensive record in the Italian top flight, where they have scored 18 goals in eight matches. Though they have struggled at the other end, conceding six goals, in the entire Champions League , Napoli have scored seven goals in their two matches, the most of any team participating in the tournament. If they beat Ajax in the third game, the Gli Azzurri will take a big step towards their desire to reach the knockout stage.

Ajax, on the other hand, are currently second in the Eredivisie standings and have not been in the best shape this season. 

The Netherlands side last weekend drew 1-1 with Go Ahead Eagles and they need to win in this match to get back on winning way.

The four-time Champions League winner, are hoping to progress to the knockout stages of the tournament, which they achieved in their final season under Erik ten Hag before losing to Benfica in the round of 16.

Entering an unmissable clash with a dangerous attacking side like Napoli, they will be hoping for a positive result to give them great momentum in their pursuit of a Champions League knockout spot.
