Ajax made a blistering start to their Champions League campaign with a 5-1 away win against Portuguese champions Sporting and bookmakers are taking no chances with the men from Amsterdam on matchday two.

The Eredivisie champs are long odds-on to make it two wins out of two against Besiktas and the Ajax forwards will be confident of adding to their Group C goal tally.

Ajax vs Besiktas Betting Odds

 

Ajax lost 4-0 to PSV Eindhoven in the season-opening Dutch Super Cup but they have barely put a foot wrong since then and are just 2/9 to see off an injury-hit Besiktas side in Amsterdam.

The Turks, beaten 2-1 at home by Borussia Dortmund, have been in patchy Super Lig form and they are a massive 22/1? to claim victory with the draw priced up at 8/1.

Sebastien Haller, who scored four of Ajax's five goals against Sporting on his Champions League debut, is 10/3 to be the first goalscorer on Tuesday.

Ajax vs Besiktas Team News

Remko Pasveer is set to continue in goal for Ajax as Andre Onana is suspended and Maarten Stekelenburg is injured. Sean Klaiber, Zakaria Labyad and Davy Klaassen remain sidelined so the hosts could name the same 11 who started against Sporting.

French full-back Valentin Rosier is available for Besiktas after serving a domestic ban but Miralem Pjanic suffered an injury against Altay on Friday and the Bosnian playmaker could join Michy Batshuayi, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Alex Teixeira and Domagoj Vida on the sidelines.

Ajax vs Besiktas H2H

The only previous European Cup meetings between these teams came in the first round of the 1966-67 tournament when Ajax eased through 4-1 on aggregate. They went on to beat Liverpool 7-3 over two legs before losing to Dukla Prague in the quarter-finals.

Besiktas also came off second best in the 1993-94 Cup Winners' Cup as a Jari Litmanen hat-trick in Istanbul helped the Dutch giants to a 6-1 aggregate victory in the second round.

The odds about a home win may look short for a Champions League group game given that Ajax do not play in one of Europe's elite leagues but it is hard to pick holes in their form.

They scored 102 goals in 34 Eredivisie matches last season and have already found the net 30 times in just seven outings this term, including a 9-0 home win over Cambuur.

Erik ten Hag's men have a habit of starting games quickly and striker Haller scored twice in the first nine minutes away to Sporting. Ajax have been leading at half-time in all seven of their wins in all competitions this season and the Ajax-Ajax double result looks a solid bet against a leaky Besiktas side.

A trip to Ajax would be a difficult assignment at the best of times but Besiktas will be without several experienced internationals due to injury and they are likely to be brushed aside by their hosts.

Ajax have conceded only two goals in eight matches since their Super Cup defeat to PSV and they should be backed to keep Besiktas at bay.

The visitors have conceded nine goals in their last four matches and a repeat of Ajax's 3-0 weekend win over Groningen looks a decent correct-score bet.
