VS ST.LIEGE PREVIEW & PREDICTION
In the Preliminary Round 3 of the Champions League, starting at 19:30, Ajax – St.Liege will play. The confrontation will take place on “Johan Cruyff Arena” in Amsterdam.
With some of the men’s titles, the host team drew in the company of Heracles, even on the field, score 1-1. Although they dominated the authoritative game, 65% possession and 17 occasions empty, “lancets” hardly avoided defeat. Matthijs de Light scored in the 84th minute, marking his first goal this season. It was the first time in the four games played so far, when the offensive failed to score more than one goal. Also, in three of the four games, the defense defeated at least once.
On the other hand, although they have benefited from their own land advantage, guests come in turn after a tie. In a game without too many important goals, they drew in the match against Cercle Brugge, score 0-0. It was the second “white” result recorded this season after the one in Waasland-Beveren. Thus, with five points accumulated, St.Liege ranked seventh in the standings, with points Cercle Brugge and Waregem.
With only one success in the five matches this season, St.Liege did not have a very encouraging perspective on the return on Tuesday. Maxime Lestienne (uncertain) is the only problem facing Preud’homme.
PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.53
