Ajax is on fire, having won a five consecutive matches including their emphatic 4-1 rout of PEC Zwolle on Saturday. Prior to that, Ajax recorded a 5-1 win over ADO Den Haag six days earlier, a pair if shut wins just prior to that – and a mind-boggling 7-1 blowout of excelsior in Nov. 11.

Bayern Munich (8-3-3) Third in German Bundesliga

Is Bayern Munich a safe bet vs Ajax in the Champions League?

Bayern has won three straight and comes into this affair off a 3-0 shutout win over Nurnberg on Saturday as Robert Lewandowski scored a pair of goals to lead the way to victory. The win helped to continue to strengthen the position of embattled coach Niko Kovac.

“Today we did not allow anything over 90 minutes and we had many chances ourselves” Kovac told reporters.

Bayern needs only a draw in order to get first place from the Dutch side in this huge match.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Ajax vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich may be the more widely known name globally, but right now, I believe Ajax Amsterdam is the better and more explosive team of the two. Ajax has a pair of young stars in highly sought after 21-year-old midfielder Frenkie de Jong and 19-year-old defender Matthijs de Ligt, not to mention an elite veteran in Serbian-born star Dusan Tadic. I like Ajax to get the one-goal win in a knock-down, drag-out fight o to the finish.
