Barcelona vs Ajax takes place in the Champions League on Wednesday night in what should be an intriguing game. Barca will be hot favorites to win this one, and some believe Ajax will do well just not to concede a hat-full. The game is scheduled to kick off at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Last season Barcelona were well and truly beaten by Bayern Munich in the Champions League. They were undone in a way that we haven't seen Barcelona beaten for many years. That means this year they will be back to prove a point. For many seasons now they have been heralded as clearly the best team in the world, however, following their embarrassing knock-out last season they, for the first time in a long time, have something to prove to people.
That makes them extremely dangerous this season, and don't be surprised if they pile forward and completely overwhelm a far more inferior Ajax team tonight.
Ajax have one of the most prestigious records in Europe, however, their most recent teams have been lacking in all departments. They are not really competitors for the Champions League this season, and they will be fighting here just to try and claim a point and hopefully keep their hopes alive of finishing second in the group to qualify for the knock out stages.
Last night arch rivals Real Madrid scored six in the Champions League, and Barcelona will have seen that and will not want to be outdone by their fierce rivals. They could well come out tonight and score six or even seven. However, it remains to be seen what type of Ajax team will come out tonight and how much of a challenge they will prove for the Catalan side.
