Benfica - Ajax
Ajax are fighting Bayern Munich for top spot in Group E and can remain in the hunt for an advantageous knockout-stage draw by causing a minor shock against Benfica.Erik ten Hag’s exciting team defeated the Portuguese club in Amsterdam and were good value for the 1-0 scoreline, winning the shots-on-target count 10-3 and controlling possession throughout before Noussair Mazraoui won the game in the 90th minute.Mazraoui is one of a number of young prospects making a name for themselves at Ajax with Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong and Donny van de Beek all being courted by Europe’s top clubs.They can take their chances against a Benfica side who are finding life tougher than expected in the usually uncompetitive Portuguese Liga, losing 2-0 to Belenenses before going down 3-1 at home to Moreirense on Friday. Ajax have kept a clean sheet in each of their last six matches.
