In order to qualify from Group D, Ajax must beat Atalanta here to leapfrog the Italians into second place. The two sides played out an exciting 2-2 draw on Matchday 2 and this contest is likely to prove just as goal-laden when you take into account the attacking nature of both sides. Ajax will be forced to take the game to Atalanta and push bodies forward in their search for victory, whilst Atalanta will expect to capitalise on the inevitable space left in behind for them. Whilst the result could go either way, it would be a big surprise if both teams didn’t find the net in this match when you consider that the visitors have already scored nine goals in their five group games and that Ajax simply have to gamble offensively in order to win the game.
