The hosts Ajax will not be able to rely on suspended Lasse Schöne. Ajax is in a series of three consecutive victories in which they scored 11 goals. In the last round of the championship Ajax beat 5:1 Neck Nijmegen. Ajax team is young and inexperienced, but the players are motivated to prove themselves. In the previous round Ajax eliminated Danish champion Copenhagen. Overall Ajax performed very strongly in this tournament. The Dutch have only one loss in their last 13 games in Europa League.
Schalke plays one way in the championship this season and much better in Europa League. In the previous round Schalke eliminated another German team Borussia Mönchengladbach after two draws. Schalke have only one victory in their last 5 games in the Europa League. Worrying, however, is the fact that Schalke performs quite unconvincing in their last visits. Team has only one win in their last seven visits.
Interesting facts about the game:
Schalke drew in their last three matches in the Europa League.
5 of the last 6 Ajax games in Europa League ended with less than 2.5 goals.
Ajax has only one loss in their last 13 games in Europa League.
Schalke has scored at least one goal in nine of their last 10 matches in Europa League.
Ajax is in a series of five consecutive home wins in Europa League.
Schalke team is much more experienced than Ajax and will not give up easily. Ajax is playing attacking football, so I expect an open game with many scoring opportunities. The possibility both teams to score a goal in the game look very realistic. I recommend you to try this bet.
