In the Ajax vs. PSG, the quarter-finalist of the last two Champions League seasons is favorite in the UCL odds listed -142. On the other side, the Netherlands team has +375 and 275 in case of a draw.
In some interesting facts, PSG has never visited Netherlands for a UEFA Champions League Game. The only match they have against Eredivise teams in UEFA competitions was a 4-0 home win over FC Twente in the 2008/09 UEFA Cup group stage.
Ibra and the rest of PSG players confront this Champions League edition with illusion. For sure, they will start trying to pass the quarterfinals barrier they have had in the last two editions. As an experienced team, they know in the Champions every match is important and are affronting the game seriously.
In this game, the PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the defender Maxwell have special feelings since they played four and five seasons respectively on Amsterdam with the Ajax. In fact, it was the first team both players played outside their countries.
“Ajax and Amsterdam in general, still have a special place in my heart, because it was there that my life changed completely. I learnt so much on the pitch, especially tactically. But it was also there that I grew up and learned about responsibilities, not just on the pitch but also in life. Ibra and I often chat about our good memories from that time. When I arrived in Amsterdam, I was completely lost, on my own, with a new language and I was very young. I had to grow up fast…” said Maxwell about the match.
On the other side, this year Ajax appears in the Champions looking forward to passing the group stage for the first time since 2005/06.
