For the semi-finalists of the Champions League from Amsterdam last year, the season on the international stage is coming to an end. Ajax face the EL elimination after the first leg bust in Getafe. The “god zones” have to make up for a 0: 2 from last week and are therefore facing a real mammoth task on Thursday evening.

A single goal would be the preliminary decision, especially since the “Godenzones” then need at least four goals against the strong defense of the Spanish representative to still solve the round of 16 ticket.
Ajax’s offensive in the first leg was anything but a good performance. In the entire game there were only two attempts by the Dutch to shoot. Neither shot went to Getafe’s goal. In order to crack the Spanish defense bulwark, Ajax trainer Erik ten Hag will have to think of a different tactic.
Like the bookmakers, we see Ajax Amsterdam against Getafe as favorites in the second leg. A tip on the “God zones” is definitely recommended, despite the poor starting point. Getafe will play results-oriented football and will hardly take any risks. It remains to be seen whether Ajax Amsterdam can still reach the round of 16 of the Europa League.
Ajax Amsterdam – Statistics & current form
In the Dutch Eredivisie, Ajax Amsterdam is again the big favorite to win the title. The “Godenzonen” want to be crowned champions for the second time in a row and thus further expand their status as Dutch record champions. Only AZ Alkmaar seems to be able to keep up with the odds from Amsterdam this season.
Godenzonen a real home power
Due to the bankruptcy on the previous day, the point cushion shrank on the pursuer. The next weekend is the six-point game between the two top clubs of the Eredivisie. If Ajax Amsterdam wins a home win over AZ Alkmaar, the padding will be expanded again to six points.
This season, the “Godenzones” are once again benefiting from the home advantage in the Johan Cruijff Arena. With a home record of 11-0-1 and a goal difference of 40: 6, Ajax Amsterdam is the strongest Dutch team in the Eredivisie. Across all competitions, Ajax have recently had five home wins in a row, with a total of 19 goals.
Coach Erik ten Hag will probably have to do without four injured players in the home game against Getafe. With Neres, Promes and Mazraoui, three important players with starting potential are missing.
In addition, Nicolas Tagliafico also has to pause yellow-blocked. It is quite possible that the hosts from Amsterdam will start with the same starting eleven as against Heracles Almelo last weekend.
Probable lineups of Ajax Amsterdam:
↪ Onana – Dest, Alvarez, Blind, Schuurs, Dest – van de Beek, Ziyech, Martinez – Tadic, Traore, Babel

Getafe – Statistics & current form
The season couldn’t get any better for Getafe. The team around head coach Pepe Bordalás is currently causing a sensation on a national and international stage. Top clubs such as FC Barcelona and Ajax Amsterdam have felt the strength of Getafe this season in recent weeks.
On the way to the premier class?
In La Liga, Getafe is currently among the narrow circle of CL candidates. Last weekend the Bordalás team slipped to fifth place in the table with a home defeat against Sevilla. In the remaining program of the second half of the season, Getafe now faces feasible tasks, which is why the CL euphoria can be understood to a certain extent.
In the almost 36-year history of the club, Getafe is only represented internationally for the third time this season. In the 2007/08 season, Getafe’s quarter-finals have been the biggest success in the European Cup so far. It remains to be seen whether a new record will be set this season.
On Thursday evening Getafe wants to exploit the good first leg result and move into the round of 16 of the Europa League. In the first leg, the team from Pepe Bordalás cut a fine figure and knew how to convince especially on the defensive. The Dutch offensive was kept in check for long stretches.
In Amsterdam, the Spanish representative will have no defaults. This means that Pepe Bordalás can once again draw on plenty. No changes are expected in the starting lineup of Getafe.
Probable lineup of Getafe:
↪ Soria – Olivera, Etxeita, Dakonam, Suarez – Cucu, Arambarri, Maksimovic, Nyom – Deyverson, Mata

Ajax Amsterdam vs Getafe Free Betting Tips Provided by Insider Tipsters
Ajax Amsterdam may have to cut sail. The “Godezonen” have a very bad starting position with the 0: 2 in Getafe and the personnel restrictions in the second leg. In the first leg, Erik ten Hag’s offensive could not set any accents and remained harmless throughout the game. Not a single Ajax shot went to Getafe’s goal.
If the defensive bulwark of the Spaniards also holds in the second leg, the round of 16 ticket will not be endangered. In contrast to the first leg, the “god zones” will take more risks. The home advantage has been a deciding factor this season, at least nationally.
