Ajax vs Besiktas Predictions and Betting Tips
Ajax running riot
Erik ten Haag’s free-wheeling Ajax swept to their sixth straight victory on Saturday when they eased to a 3-0 win over fellow Eredivisie side Groningen and you’ll find it tough to find a team in better form anywhere in Europe right now.
Ajax’s sky-high confidence was evident in their Champions League Group C opener at Sporting CP earlier this month when they smashed their hosts 5-1 in a statement performance in Portugal.
The Dutch giants have notched an eye-watering 29 goals in their last six assignments and with Dusan Tadic, Steven Berghuis, Antony and Sebastien Haller all excelling in the final third, Ajax could plunder another hatful against Besiktas on Tuesday.

Besiktas have injury problems
Even at full-strength, the odds would have been stacked against Besiktas in the Netherlands this week, though the Turkish side will arrive in Amsterdam in the grip of an injury crisis.
Michy Batshuayi, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Alex Teixeira and Domagoj Vida are among the lengthy list of absentees this week, with several more players nursing knocks ahead of Tuesday’s crucial clash.
With their personnel issues a factor, Besiktas have won only one of their last four games in all competitions and they leaked nine goals across that quartet of underwhelming results. The Black Eagles were shot down by Dortmund on matchday one in Group C and their chances of an improved result against Ajax feel extremely slim.
Ajax vs Besiktas Key Stats:
- Ajax have won each of their last six games in all competitions.
- Five of Ajax’s last six games have produced over 2.5 goals.
- Ajax have scored 22 goals in their last four home games.
- Besiktas failed to win three of their last four fixtures.
Ajax vs Besiktas Predictions
Ajax have been blowing teams away with ferocious regularity this season, especially in Amsterdam where they have plundered an eye-watering 22 goals in their last four matches alone. The firepower in their ranks couple with Besiktas’ injury problems means that Ajax are massive favourites to win on Tuesday, though we recommend coupling a home victory with three or more goals to be scored to fatten your odds.
Ivorian striker Sebastien Haller is also available at an excellent price in the anytime goalscorer market. The former West Ham man hit four goals against Sporting earlier this month and he can add to his Champions League tally against a depleted Besiktas.
