Wolverhampton Wanderers players celebrate
With both teams hoping to make a statement of intent in this duel, there’s bound to be a high-scoring result here

The Banks’ Stadium is the venue for the clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and the Dutch Eredivisie runners-up, Ajax in this international club friendly on Thursday.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s charges had a tremendous outing last season in the Championship, after scooping 99 points to end the campaign nine clear off the second-placed Cardiff City.

Following the Wolves’ six-year absence from the English Premier League, they’ll be hoping to come back with high confidence from their pre-season matches’ results. Having defeated Basel 2-1 in the first tie of the Uhren Cup last Tuesday, Bet365 offers odds of (2.20) for them as slight favourites.

The Lancers will be hoping to get a positive outcome here knowing well that this duel is the final test for them prior to the Champions League showdown with Sturm Graz on Tuesday. Since they come off the back of a three-game winless run, they’re priced at (2.62) should they pull off a shocking result.

Seeing a stalemate feature at the end of 90 minutes of intense action is chalked up at a juicy (3.60) with the same betting firm.

Santos’ men and Erik ten Hag’s charges have seen three or more goals scored in their last five encounters respectively. It’s also worth mentioning that both teams boast of respective lethal attacks.

Thus, brave punters should go all for an over 2.5 goal outcome in this fixture for a massive fortune. Bet365 chalks this up at odds of (1.60).
