Sturm vs Ajax Prediction 1 August 2018

Tournament: UEFA Champions League Qualification
Location: Merkur Arena, Graz
Match date: 01.08.2018 at 19:30

On August 1 2018 at 19:30 at the Merkur Arena in Graz in the upcoming regular match of the second round of the UEFA Champions League qualification the local Sturm are playing against their guests Ajax. In the first leg game of the ongoing round the more experienced Dutch club managed to win 2:0. Can they keep their advantage after the away match on Austria?

At the end of the previous season Sturm became the vice-champions of Austria and that’s how they got their opportunity to try and make it to the group stage of the competition. Yet, the level of this team doesn’t match the most prestigious competition of the Old World. We think that in a year they will be more experienced and will have their chances in that competition. Last weekend Sturm started their participation in the domestic championship with the victory against Hartberg 3:2.

As for the Eredivisie, it only starts in one and a half weeks. In fact, the upcoming match will be just the second one for Ajax in the ongoing season. This summer the Red and Whites got a new manager and he is supposed to make the team to the Champions League group stage and to show as wonderful results there as they can.

The handicap of two goals after two leg games is actually a serious advantage. Moreover, Sturm are playing against Ajax who are more experienced and really strong. The Dutch have an opportunity to stay in defense and try using counterattacks. It seems more possible for us that the Dutch are more likely to get their local success.
