Our tipster is anticipating an open and entertaining clash in the Dutch capital when Erik ten Hag's team take on the German champions in Group E

Ajax host Bayern Munich in what promises to be a captivating Champions League Group E finale on Wednesday night.

Both teams are already assured of a place in the last 16 of the competition, but top spot has yet to be decided, with Erik ten Hag's hosts requiring victory to leapfrog the German champions.

Latest odds

Ajax have been in formidable form on their own patch this term; the Eredivisie side are unbeaten in 12 home matches, winning each of their last 11.

Given that imperious record, the 51/20 (3.55) quote offered up by SportPesa for Ajax to claim the victory they need may well prove popular with punters.

Bayern are unbeaten in seven Champions League matches away from home and Nico Kovac's team are available at 21/20 (2.05) to win this one, while the Bavarians can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) to pick up the point they need to guarantee top spot in Group E.

Team news

Hakim Ziyech and Lasse Schone are expected to be fit enough to feature, providing Ten Hag's team with a significant fillip. Joel Veltman and Hassane Bande are long-term absentees.

Corentin Tolisso and James Rodriguez remain sidelined for Kovac's men, but Bayern have no other concerns ahead of the trip to Amsterdam.

Defensive discipline key for hosts

Remarkably, Ajax have kept no fewer than nine clean sheets in their last 11 home matches, with the Eredivisie side winning all 11 of those fixtures.

SportPesa go 4/1 (5.0) that Ajax keep Bayern at bay, while the hosts are chalked up as a 5/1 (6.0) chance to win without conceding in the Dutch capital.

Prediction

Bayern, though, have scored at least twice in all but one of their last 12 away ties in this competition and there is plenty of potential for goals when these rivals lock horns.

Robert Lewandowski & Co. should pose more threat than most but the home side have shown their quality in front of goal too.

The 5/6 (1.83) quote from SportPesa for more than two goals and both teams to score could represent best value for punters.
