Team Lineups

We will publish the confirmed team line ups when they are confirmed here are our predicted line ups for the game.

Current Standings

Liverpool are group winners and are due to play FC Midtjylland in a match that doesn’t count for much, this means that second place is up for grabs between the two teams that find themselves 2nd and 3rd in the group.

This is a must win game for both Ajax and Atalanta with the winner finishing second in Group D and progressing to the knockout stages of the competition. The last time these two met it finished 2-2 and a similar outcome would see Atlanta progressing at the expense of Ajax.

Current Form

Ajax were halted in their steps with a league defeat last week but the form has otherwise been good lately. In the last 3 matches, Ajax destroyed FC Emmen by 5 goals, followed by a lean 1-0 defeat against Liverpool in the Champions League and most recent a small 2-1 defeat against Twente.

Going into this encounter with 4 wins in their previous 6 matches on home turf, Ajax will be looking to add 3 points to their tally on Wednesday.

Atalanta go into this encounter in miserable league form. In the last 3 matches, Atalanta finished off Liverpool in null 2-0 win in the Champions League, followed by a 2-0 defeat to Verona and a 1-1 draw against FC Midtjylland in the Champions League in the last match.

A string of good performances on the road have seen Atalanta winning 4 of their last 6 matches here, and they will fancy their chances of producing a small upset.

Ajax vs Atalanta Bruges Head To Head

No team managed to grab a decisive hold of their last match and thus both had to settle for a point. Their few previous meetings have been equally split and offer little indication of a potential winner here.

There is a  90% chance of either team scoring 1 goal in the particular fixture, with Atlanta having a 90% chance of scoring 1.5 goals or more. One thing is almost certain this game is unlikely to end in a 0-0 draw.
