Ajax vs Young Boys Match Analysis and Prediction

Young Boys will be looking to make it to the quarter-finals as they square off against Dutch giants Ajax in the Europa League last 16 ties. The match schedules for Thursday at Johan Cruijff Arena, with a kickoff at 8:55 pm.

Ajax found the better part of Lille to advance to the next stage, while Young Boys surprised German outfit Bayer Leverkusen.

First off, the domestic home front for Ajax is nothing short of impressive, with a six-point lead in the Eredivisie during a spot in the finals of KNVB-Beker. It is a good run of form for Erik ten Hag for the Dutch giants.

However, two years later, after their impressive run in the Champions League, the main focus remains on getting a European trophy to top it off. Even though there was a disappointment after falling into the competition, there is an ideal chance to move closer to a second-half final in four years against Young Boys.

Sebastien Haller remains a big miss for the side but showed an impressive display in their win over Lille. Ajax is currently on a 19 unbeaten streak in all competitions, with their last defeat on December 9, to Atalanta.

Young Boys failed to record a win ever since their dramatic comeback against Leverkusen, with three successive draws registered in the Swiss top flight. However, they hold a 19-point advantage on the domestic front.
