S.L. Benfica vs AFC Ajax Prediction 23 February 2022

Tournament: UEFA Champions League
Location: Estádio da Luz, Lisbon
Match date: 02/23/2022 at 20:00

In one of the most equal pairs of the Champions League round of 16, Benfica and Ajax will measure their strength.

At the moment, Benfica are in a bit of a crisis, as evidenced by their results in the Primeira Liga - two wins, a draw and a defeat in February. Therefore, the Eagles remain in third position, but without a chance to fight for the title. In the Champions League they finished second in the group with Bayern, Barcelona and Dynamo Kyiv.

Ajax also earned the maximum 18 points in confrontations with Sporting, Borussia Dortmund and Besiktas.  Ten Hag's men have not performed so successfully on the continental arena for a very long time. And in the national league, they confidently lead the peloton, having beaten Willem II minimally 1-0 the day before.

We think that with the support of the native fans, Benfica will impose tough competition on Ajax. But it will not be easy for Lisbon to keep a clean sheet, because the opponent's attack is one of the best in Europe.
