Ajax blew their chance to cruise for victory against P. Eindhoven with only a single point deficit of 1:0 goal. The defeat has allowed PSV to close the gap between them and Ajax to three points, but the Dutch giants’ who are seated in the second spot will be eyeing firmly on the Europa League.
As they host Lyon. The club’s left back Daley Sinkraven will not join the battle as he is sidelined due to a knee injury, whilst fellow defenders Nick Viergever and Joel Veltman are suspended.
Meanwhile, Lyon are not in their best form too, following two defeats in their last six games. The club’s hopes of Europa League triumph have also taken a blow these past days given the fact that Alexandre Lacazetter was sent off due to injury. Without him, Lyon have a very slim chance of taking a stand against their upcoming contenders.
Doubters will be proved wrong as Ajax dominate not only on the pitch but on the score sheet as well against Lyon.
Ajax 2.38 (this odd might change)
