Sports news - Get €5 FreeBet - Here we come with another battle of tonight; Chelsea Vs. Ajax. N'Golo Kante, a strong midfielder at the Chelsea side has been reported to recover from his injury and will be playing in tonight’s Champions League match with Ajax. This has further been confirmed by the head coach Frank Lampard. This season, Kante has played 6 matches for Chelsea and has lost their previous 5 matches after his last comeback was blocked by a gross injury happened during the international match with France.
Even after Kanté’s recurrent absences, Chelsea has managed to win 8 of 9 matches, with the only defeat coming last midweek in the simply discarded League Cup competition. It seems that Lampard will certainly want to stick with the hot hand(s) in his team, but we may see a few amendments from 72 hours before to keep the legs fresh.
On the other side, Ajax followed up their obvious loss to Chelsea by putting four past both Feyenoord and PEC Zwolle in the Eredivisie, having a six-point lead over AZ at the top as they try to guard their league title. Ajax had acquired a clean bill of health for the previous match but will be without Edson Alvarez, who is suffering a concussion by way of a sharp elbow over the weekend. Fellow centre back Lisandro Martínez also got a knock — prompting the entrance of Alvarez into the game in the first place — but he’s seemingly fine to play. Ajax coach Ten Hag labelled Chelsea as one of the favourites for this season of Champions League, but he will categorically be looking to spoil Chelsea tonight.
We see some hiccups in the way to do prediction. One cannot bully Ajax with the ball, but one can without it. Chelsea would wish to get the technical advantage over Ajax so we expect a great game tonight. Both teams have some weaknesses, but it will be another eccentric result for Frank Lampard.
