Ajax vs Lyon Prediction 3 May 2017

Tournament: Europa League
Location: Johan Cruijff Arena
Match date: 03.05.2017 at 17:45

On May 3 2017 at 17:45 in Amsterdam the upcoming game of the Europa League will be played at the Johan Cruijff Arena between Ajax and their competitors Lyon.

The loss to PSV 1:0 in the latest game of Ajax made their chances of becoming the champions of the national elite division close to zero. They are now on the second position in the standings, yet they are four points below the leaders Feyenoord. Anyway, the young squad of Ajax looks really good in the international competition. We must remind you that they finished the group stage on the first place in the table without losing a single game and after that they won against Legia, Copenhagen and Schalke in the play-offs.

As for Lyon, they are still the favorites and one of the leaders of the French Ligue 1. The victory against Angers 1:2 in their latest game let them gain 57 points and stay on the 4th place in the standings. We don’t think that Lyon will be able to compete for making it to the Champions League as they are 20 points below the 3rd place. Yet, Lyon are still one of the favorites of the Europa League. We must remind you that they made it to the play-offs of the competition as they took the third place in their group of the Champions League. On the way to the semifinal of the Europa League Lyon won against AZ Alkmaar 2:11, Roma 4:5 and Besiktas 3:4.

The upcoming game will be the fifth one played between the teams. we must also remind you that in the season 2002 at the Champions League group stage Ajax won both of their matches 2:1 and 0:2 and after that on 2011 they drew in both games. Ajax show great results in their home matches and they haven’t lost since August 20 last year, for 21 matches in a row while they won 20 of them. As for Lyon, they showed pretty unstable results in their latest matches and yet they scored in most of those games. We think that the results of the upcoming game won’t surely tell us the finalists of the Europa League; Ajax will still manage to avoid a loss.
