Ajax v Manchester United: Betting Tips & Predictions – UEFA Europa League Final.
The Friends Arena in Solna (Sweden) will be the decor of classic Europa League Final, played between two of the biggest names in history of European football: Ajax and Manchester United. It is also the match between probably the biggest spenders in football with a star studded lineup versus mickey mouse, fielding a team of self raised youngsters.

Ajax v Manchester United Preview & Team News
Peter Bosz will travel to Sweden boosted by a fully fit squad. All 24 first team members are available now also Daley Sinkgraven rejoined the team after an injury spell. Based upon previous matches it also seems rather clear what the Ajax starting lineup will be, although two positions might see a surprise.
Right back Joel Veltman had some very shaky performances versus Lyon and Kenny Tete proved to be a very competent replacement. Opinions in general are divided as to who is the better defender out of these two. To give you an example, Tete is the right back in the Dutch squad in favor of Veltman.
The other position open to debates is the one of left winger. Currently, and most of the season, Amin Younes occupies that position but not without discussions. Younes has a terrible habit of always looking to go inside instead of also making use of the width of the pitch and go for the action outside and provide a cross.
After weeks of moaning in the press about everything you can possibly think of, Jose Mourinho also has enough fit players to pick and chose from. Obviously, although sending a mysterious tweet this week, Zlatan won’t be playing versus the club where he grew from a talent into the striker he has been for the last decade.
Also unavailable is suspended defender Eric Bailly. The international player of Ivory Coast picked up a rather stupid red card in their previous Europa League match versus Celta de Vigo.

Ajax v Manchester United Betting Tips & Predictions
Considering the fact that a Mourinho lead team is in the final, all alarm bells should go ballistic when it comes down to betting on overs. The Portuguese with his horrible defensive play style is a master in killing a game. Make it as ugly as possible, and then try to get a 1-0 win.
From the last 20 official matches the Mancunians have played, only 3 went over 2,5 match goals after 90 minutes. To state the huge difference between the two teams: in the last 20 Ajax matches, over match 3,5 goals landed.
My predictions are based upon the fact that I certainly see Manchester United score a goal. This young Ajax side will leave space for the fast paced United strikers in the counter attack. I doubt they will be good enough to withstand that for 90 minutes.
On the other hand I also see Ajax scoring at least once. The Amsterdam team almost always scores, and versus reputable teams such as Lyon and Schalke 04, Ajax scored a total of 9 goals in 4 matches.
My best betting tip and prediction for Ajax v Manchester United is both teams to score. Betfair offers betting odds of 23/20, a real decent price.
