The Ajax vs Barcelona Champions League match will take place this Tuesday, November 26, 2013 (11:45 AM Pacific) at the Amsterdam Stadium. While FC Barcelona has secured their qualification into the Round-of-16, Ajax must win this Tuesday, or tie with the hope that AC Milan loses against Celtic. Tuesday’s game will be an intense match for the Dutch, who in front of their fans will attempt to earn a win in against one of the world’s greatest wins in what would become a historic achievement.
After obtaining just 4 points after four matches, Ajax is on the verge of elimination from the Champions League if they lose, and AC Milan win this week. Were to elimination happen, Frank De Boer’s team will have the opportunity to compete in the Europa League starting in the Round-of-32. While elimination is the most clear scenario, there is still chance of hope for Ajax. If AC Milan ties or loses against Celtic, Ajax and the Italian team will play a decisive match next December 11, where the winner will qualify as the second placed team of Group H.
The team coached by Tata Martino is in a whole different situation from Ajax, because with 10 points, and 5 more than the second placed AC Milan, the ‘blaugranas’ have almost secured their first place seed. The worst would need to happen for Barcelona to win the group, as they have to lose their final two matches, and for either Ajax or Milan to also win their last two. Nonetheless, Barcelona has to play intelligently this Tuesday, in order to secure the group.
Ajax vs Barcelona Prediction
The Ajax vs Barcelona match will be played in a wonderful atmosphere at the Amsterdam Arena. The visitors will play without much pressure as a win, and even a tie will reassure their first place in Group H. Meanwhile, Ajax cannot play defensively, considering that they need at least a tie to remain alive in their aspirations to finish in second place of the group. The Ajax vs Barcelona match will be exciting, but the Spanish league side will win 2-0, and confirm their first place seed in the group.
