Chelsea emerged 2-1 winners at Watford last weekend and will now turn their attention to Europe where they will face Ajax at Stamford Bridge. Can the Dutch exact revenge after a 1-0 loss to the Blues in the reverse fixture? Read on for Chelsea vs Ajax betting tips and predictions.
Chelsea are currently sitting 4th in the Premier League and exceeding expectations after a strong start by their English talents. The Blues have been compared to Ajax after finding this generation of players, which is a long way from the Galacticos reputation they had during the early Abramovich years. However, these young Chelsea stars are unproven, while they’re yet to land a major win at Stamford Bridge.
Ajax are obviously weakened from their Champions League semi-final run last year, but they’ve still made a table-topping start domestically and they’re matching the Blues so far in this group. Ajax kicked things off with back to back 3-0 wins in the Champions League, while they feel like a genuine threat to the Premier League side here.

Chelsea vs Ajax Prediction
- Lampard will be concerned with the fact that the Blues have failed to land a win at home yet against top sides, with Liverpool, Valencia and Manchester United all having won here since he took over as manager. We do expect Ajax to get a result here despite a disappointing 1-0 loss to the Blues in the reverse fixture, and we are tipping this game to end in a 1-1 draw.
