Napoli vs Ajax preview & prediction

Match preview

Eight days after their spectacular victory in Amsterdam, Group A leaders Napoli once again will meet Ajax to seal their passage into the Champions League knockout round at Stadio Maradona.

Napoli achieved one of their best away performances in the Champions League this season, scoring six goals against Ajax in Amsterdam. 

This was the Italian’s fourth victory in Group A and they played with a swagger that Ajax found difficult to match in Napoli.

So, right after the club’s biggest defeat in European competition, Ajax are now playing against a team with such a flogging and progress in Group A is still very strong and within reach. Therefore, there is no time to reflect on their misfortunes.

Meanwhile, Ajax, a four-time European champion naturally defied all odds to reach the semi final in 2019, but a string of player sales since then — perhaps none as significant as the departure of coach Erik ten Hag, have seen the team seek their identities under new manager Schreuder.

Time is of the essence, so the former Club Brugge manager must convince his team that they can bounce back from a Champions League losing streak and score points again at Napoli.
