Ajax V Barcelona: Tips and prediction – 05.11.2014

By on November 9, 2014
Ajax will host Barcelona this Wednesday evening from 19:45, UK Time, in the fourth fixture of Uefa Champions League group stage. There are no doubts about Barcelona’s superiority, but Ajax will not give up so easy.
 
The home side is still looking for the first victory in this group. They managed to get only two points from the first three matches after 1-1 at home against PSG and 1-1 away with APOEL. After that, they lost against Barcelona, 1-3 in Spain. The Eredivisie champions will have only one missing player. To be more precise, Viktor Fischer will miss the match due to an injury.
 
Barcelona will try to get all three points, securing their place in the next round of this competition. After the first three fixtures, Barca have six points and a positive goal difference (6-4), being one point behind PSG. They will field a 4-3-3 formation, but the guests will be without Andres Iniesta. There are three more players on injury list, like Vermaelen, Mathieu and Sergi Roberto. Pique will partner Mascherano in the centre of the defence.
 
Barcelona confirmer their superiority two weeks ago, winning 3-1 at home. Last season the catalans won 4-0 at Camp Nou, but here they lost 1-2 even if they played with one more man in the second half.
 
Ajax vs Barcelona probable lineups:

Ajax (4-3-3): Cillessen – Rhijn, Veltman, Moisander, Boilesen – Klaassen, Serero, Viergever – Schone, Sightorsson, Andersen.
