Ajax - AC Milan Betting Preview: Expect plenty of goals in Amsterdam

Frank de Boer's side welcome the Rossoneri to the Amsterdam ArenA in desperate need of three points and our tipster is backing plenty of goals in the Group G clash
AC Milan travel to Holland to face Ajax in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday with both sides having contrasting starts to their European campaigns.

Where as Milan ground out a 2-0 win against Celtic in Italy, Ajax had a tough start at the Nou Camp, with Barcelona beating them 4-0.

Despite that result, Ajax have had a solid, if not spectacular start to the season, sitting in fourth position in the Eredivisie, with 14 points from their first eight matches.

Frank de Boer's side have been strong at home, racking up 17 goals in five matches, and coming out on top on each occasion.

Bet365 price them at 7/4 (2.75) to get their Champions League campaign up and running.

Milan come into this match having beaten Sampdoria 1-0 at the weekend, but still in a sticky patch of form.

Massimiliano Allegri's side sit in ninth position in Serie A, with only eight points from their first six games.

An Emilio Izaguirre own goal and Sulley Muntari strike against Celtic gave them a much-needed three points from their opening European match, and with Barcelona the other side in Group H, they will feel as though they need to win this match tonight to ensure they are in a good position to progress. Bet365 price them at 17/10 (2.70) to secure another victory. The same firm price the draw at 12/5 (3.40).

A bet that stands out in this match is over 2.5 goals at 17/20 (1.85) with Bet365. This bet would have paid out in seven of Ajax's last nine matches, as well as Milan's last three away matches.

With Ajax in goalscoring form and Milan scoring five in their last two away matches, it is certainly worth backing this bet.
