The first tip on this list comes from the Champions League where Ajax travel to Benfica for the first leg of the Round of 16.
Benfica come into this match having won just three of their last five Liga Nos games following their 2-2 draw against Boavista last time out, having previously beaten the likes of Santa Clara, Tondela and Arouca by 2-1, 3-1 and 2-0 scorelines. Jorge Jesus’ men also suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat to Gil Vicente in early February.
On the other hand, Ajax have won all of their last five Eredivisie fixtures, defeating Willem II 1-0, FC Twente 5-0, Heracles 3-0, on top of a crucial 2-1 victory away at fierce rivals PSV thanks to goals by Brian Brobbey and Noussair Mazraoui on top of a comfortable 3-0 win against Utrecht.
The last time Ajax played a side from Liga Nos in this competition was when they thumped champions of Portugal Sporting Lisbon 5-1 and 4-2 in this season’s group stages.
