THE PREDICTION

Two attack-minded teams do battle here in what could be one of the ties of the round as Ajax and Borussia Dortmund meet in Amsterdam. The return from injury of Erling Haaland over the weekend was a huge boost to Dortmund and he will undoubtedly provide the German outfit with the cutting edge they were largely lacking on Matchday 2 when they toiled to a 1-0 win over Sporting CP. Ajax, meanwhile, have the competition’s top scorer in their ranks with Sebastien Haller having found the net five times already, while he was also on target in the Eredivisie on Saturday. If this lives up to its billing, expect both teams to score.
