Our match prediction:
Ajax and Fenerbahce showed to be very equal during their last confrontation in the Europa League. Late in the second halve the Turkish team managed to beat Ajax 1-0 which brings Fenerbahce second on the table while Ajax is third. Only the first 2 teams will qualify for the knock out stage in the Europa League which puts a lot of pressure on the shoulders of the Dutch team. Ajax will have to beat Fenerbahce else their season in Europe will be over. Ajax is currently leader in the Dutch Eredivisie and is in decent form. We predict Ajax to beat the Turkish Fenerbahce with minimal difference. The Dutch team will keep hope to reach the knock out stage. Midfielder Davy Klaassen is a player big European teams need to keep an eye on.
