Chelsea will host Ajax on the 5th of November in the next round in the Champions League. They are currently leading Group H and in the Chelsea vs Ajax betting predictions, they are favorite to win the game.
In the previous round, the Blues managed to beat Ajax in Amsterdam with the late goal of Michy Batshuayi. It was an intense game with lots of chances on both sides, all missed out until the 86th minute when substitute Batshuayi scored from an opportunity. An open game is expected in London as well, with scoring options in front of both teams.

More chance for hosts in the Chelsea vs Ajax betting predictions
Online sportsbooks in the UK favor Chelsea to win with 2.00 odds. This makes sense as Chelsea are leading the group, but Ajax and Valencia are close behind, so they need to make sure they stay on top. The team has been in great form, they were winning six games in a row. Their winning series was stopped by Manchester United in the League Cup, where Chelsea lost 2-1 against the Red Devils.
Still the team is performing better under new manager Frank Lampard than in previous years. New young players, like Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, have become part of the first team, who are hungry for success. They are fourth in the Premier League, only five points behind Liverpool. In the Champions League after a bad start, losing against Valencia at home, they’ve also found their form. They won against Lille and now Ajax away, giving them a better position for the remaining games.
Can Ajax surprise the Blues?
Ajax are leading the Eredivisie confidently at home, they are six points ahead of PSV and AZ Alkmaar. They are also performing well in the Champions League, winning their first two games against Lille and Valencia. They are in 2nd place with the same points as Chelsea.
Now they can try to take revenge and win in their home, but it won’t be an easy job. Online gambling sites in the UK are giving 3.60 odds for an Ajax win. In our Chelsea vs Ajax betting predictions, any result is reasonable. Both teams were close to winning on their last game, so Ajax can surprise Chelsea and take a win. If you bet on that, you can earn a lot of money but a draw is almost as promising with 3.50 odds at bet365.
