Match Date: 17 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: Amsterdam Arena


Now is the time for Paris Saint Germain to gain redemption from its frustrating Champions League fall out last season. The Parisians almost made it to the final stages, if not for the horrible mishaps that transpired during the battle against Chelsea.


Ajax also endured a near miss last season. The squad was on the verge of advancing to the Knockout Stage, until AC Milan destroyed them.


The contenders


Ajax faces mounting pressure in entering the Champions League. The problems they confront in Eredivisie generates more worries and troubles as the club seems to lack the consistency and stability that they are known for.


Back in the domestic league, Ajax has already experienced 2 consecutive losses, which, if not confronted, may affect their performance in the European competition.


Ajax almost advanced in the knockout stage during the last season. Certainly, they proved that they are not a push-over squad. However, a draw against the Rossoneris dismembered all their hopes of progressing in the finals.


Paris Saint Germain

Paris Saint Germain did a spectacular job of entering the quarter-finals last season. Pitted against Chelsea, they were the top pick of sports betting sites, most especially when they clinched a 3-1 victory in the 2-legged play-offs.


Unfortunately, their second meeting witnessed the Blues scored twice. The latter also kept a clean sheet, which gave them the victory via the virtue of aggregate scoring.


The said loss could motivate PSG to perform better this season and avoid the above-mentioned mistake from happening again.


Possible head turners

But of course, many are waiting for the scoring tandem of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani. The 2 talismanic strikers have been very busy in collecting goals for Ligue 1’s defending champion and will most likely do the same in this particular competition.



Ajax 1- 2 Paris Saint Germain.
