Ajax vs PAOK Thessaloniki Today’s Betting Tips
Ajax were one of the most exciting teams of last season by winning the title in the Netherlands and reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League. This summer, the Lancers made a convincing preparation (3 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat) then won the Supercup in front of PSV Eindhoven (2-0) and they were held in check by Vitesse Arnem at the end of the 1st day. In the first leg, it was the same result (2-2).
For its part, the PAOK has been above all expectations by winning the title of champion before the Olympiakos and even was undefeated at the end of the season. During preparation, the North Peninsula club won 4 games, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the process, the partners of former Rennais Pedro Henrique managed to hold Ajax in check in the first leg.
The staff for Ajax vs PAOK Thessaloniki
Stripped of his best players like De Ligt (Juventus) and De Jong (Barcelona), Ajax have recruited young defenders Edson Alvarez (formerly America, MEX), Lisandro Martinez (former Defensa, ARG) and Kik Pierie (formerly Heerenveen) , Romanian midfielder Razvan Marin (formerly Standard Liège) and winger Quincy Promes (ex FC Sevilla). On the other hand, incumbents Onana, Blind, van de Beek Ziyech and Tadic are still present in the squad.
Unlike his evening opponent, PAOK has retained almost all these best elements this summer and has even recruited young Brazilian midfielder Douglas Augusto (ex Corinthians) and Slovak winger Miroslav Stoch (formerly Slavia Prague). The main loss is that of Serb striker Prijovic, who has gone to the Gulf.
