Ajax Vs Chelsea Preview & Betting

July 23rd, 2010

Fans of the English Premier League all have their eyes on Chelsea’s pre season form as the London side return to the domestic season hoping to retain their title as Champions.

Our tip of the match is a Chelsea 2-1 win at $8 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Having recently beat Crystal Palace 1-0 as the countdown to the Premiership continues; Chelsea has seen some change in personnel and pit their wits against Amsterdam’s Ajax tomorrow.

While the Londoners enjoyed a flourishing season in England, their European campaign was less than satisfactory not reaching the quarterfinals of the 2009-10 UEFA Champions League, and so facing a European side implies that is their goal this season.

The English Champions are at $1.73 for the win at Ladbrokes.com.au but will have to overcome the loss of England international Joe Cole to rivals Liverpool and the injured Petr Cech.

Dider Drogba is another potential player to be leaving the Blues with a possible spot for him at Manchester City and so Daniel Sturridge is one to watch tomorrow night as a future star.

Ajax are out at $4 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au and have some off-field dramas of their own to contend with.

Successful manager Martin Jol has been rumoured to be leaving for Chelsea’s bitter rivals Fulham, although it seems the man who took Ajax to the second spot in last season’s Eredivisie is happy at Ajax.

Chelsea will also play Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt and Hamburg before embarking on the 2010-11 Premier League and the illustrious FA Cup.

While a draw is a possibility at $3.50, it is more likely the Blues will walk away the winners, and our tip of the match is a Chelsea 2-1 win at $8 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
