TODAY'S BEST BET | MARCH 15
We’re off to the UEFA Champions League for today’s best bet as Ajax and Benfica battle it out to progress through to the Quarter-finals of the competition.
Both sides have it all to play for after an entertaining tussle in the first leg in Portugal that finished 2-2. Despite gaining the lead twice throughout the tie, Benfica clawed back to salvage a draw.
Considering the away goal rule is not in place anymore, there is still a chance Benfica could cause a surprise upset on the European Giants.
However, it will be a tough ask considering that Ajax have failed to lose a game in this campaigns Champions League thus far. In fact, the draw in the last meeting was the only time they failed to secure the win.
They have also typically been high-scoring results. In Ajax’s seven European games this season, both teams have score on five occasions, with the Dutch side winning four of those. It has also been a common trope in the league as well, with that result occurring in the last two league matches.
Meanwhile, Benfica have been inconsistent in the Champions League this season, with just two wins from seven games after finishing second in their group ahead of Barcelona.
Similarly, both teams scoring has also been common theme in Benfica matches this season – it has happened in nine of their last 10 matches in all competitions.
Ajax have been one of the strongest teams in this competition so far and I expect them to progress in a high-scoring contest in the early hours of Wednesday morning (AEST).
