Champions League play-off tips: Ajax and Young Boys feature

| 22.08.2018

The Champions League play-off first legs conclude tonight with a trio of fascinating clashes.

Ajax face Dynamo Kyiv, MOL Vidi take on AEK Athens, and Young Boys clash with Dinamo Zagreb. And we’ve got you covered with mini-previews of each game, including tips.

Ajax v Dynamo Kyiv

European giants Ajax come into this leg in excellent form having started the season unbeaten.

The Amsterdam outfit have won four, and drawn two of their first six competitive games. Erik ten Hag’s squad have breezed through the qualifiers and are available at 8/13 to win tonight.

However, Dynamo are in their own rich vein of form too. The Ukrainian behemoths are unbeaten in seven matches, including a 1-0 Super Cup win over Shakhtar Donetsk. They’re underdogs here at 19/4.

Goals have been a staple of Ajax’s European adventures this season. They scored five on aggregate in each of the last two rounds. Ajax and Over 2.5 Goals here is 7/4.

MOL Vidi v AEK Athens

Greek champions AEK have a great chance of making the UCL Group Stages as they take on continental minnows MOL Vidi.

You may know the Hungarian outfit better as Videoton. They have never made the Group Stage before. And they’re 14/5 to get a win over 90 minutes in their home leg here.

AEK are 6/5. And considering they managed to escape fortress Celtic Park with a point, they look decent for a win tonight.

It looks like it’ll be tight, however. The Greek Super League side don’t concede too many. And five of Vidi’s six CL qualifiers so far have featured Under 2.5 goals. AEK to win and Under 2.5 Goals is 5/2.

Young Boys v Dinamo Zagreb

Young Boys will be looking to put consecutive play-off failures behind them tonight when they take on Dinamo Zagreb.

The Swiss champions beat FC Basel to last season’s title by a massive 15 points. And they’ll be confident of a win on home soil this evening at 4/5.

However, Dinamo have progressed on three of the last four occasions they’ve made it through to this phase of the competition. The Croatian champions are 10/3 for the win.

Goals should be a feature here. Young Boys are very attack-minded and have scored at least twice in their last three wins at home. Dinamo scored at least once in each of their last four away legs at this round in the UCL qualifiers.

Both Teams To Score is 7/10 and Over 2.5 Goals is 19/20. Young Boys Guillaume Hoarau is averaging a goal per game this term. He’s 23/20 to be an Anytime Goalscorer.
