Sturm in the domestic arena held two matches in the new season, both won, in the AFC Siegendorf Cup 2-0, and in the championship at Harberg 3: 2. But here in the Champions League, the Austrians at the exit did not make Ajax 0: 2. If you take Sturm statistics in your field in 2018, then in 12 matches you have 7 victories, with two draws and three failures.


Ajax held only one official game of the season, just against the Austrians. After that victory, the Dutch played a friendly match with Konyaspor lost in it 0: 1. In 2018, Ajax spent 8 matches on the road, winning five times, with one draw and two defeats.


In this pair by and large everything is natural and without surprises. I think the Dutch team will be able to retain its advantage and without any problems get into the next round of the competition. The name, budget, costs for players in this offseason, brand, spectator interest, all this speaks in favor of the Dutch, and of course the Victoria in the first game. I think that the guests will be able to restrain the attack of the Austrians and achieve a positive result. The rate: TM3.
