Ajax defend leadership at home against a Benfica in full swing

2018 Oct 23

It will be full this Tuesday at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam. Illusioned by the great start of their team in the maximum European competition, the Dutch fans will go en masse to support their Ajax who defends at home the Group E leadership before a Benfica who needs a victory at all costs to not get away from the fight by the classification .

The Ajax is tied with Bayern with 4 points, while the Portuguese add 3 and can even return to Lisbon leaders with a victory and a stumble of the Germans against AEK.

Benfica are experiencing a great moment of form in Portugal. He arrives undefeated in the local season, and is leader of the NOS League after winning the home-grown local against Porto on the last day. His only defeat in the season was the debut in the group stage of the Champions League against Bayern in Lisbon.

The Lisboetas travel with problems in the defense, where they will not have Ruben Dias, expelled before the AEK, and with a Jardel returning from injury and is far from his optimal physical condition.

On the other side, Ajax is motivated by the renewal of its stars, Dolberg, who signed on Monday contract with the club until 2022.
