Czech outfit Jablonec will look to overturn a 1-0 away loss when they host Dutch side Ajax for the UEFA Europa League. It wouldn't be the first time, as they recovered from a 1-0 home loss to Copenhagen to win 2-1 away. Ajax want to secure the consolation prize of Europa League, having blown their chance at Champions League in the previous round when they were stunned by Rapid Vienna.

Ajax were not very convincing in the first leg of the challenge at the Amsterdam Arena, as they required a second half penalty to take the minimal lead. However, they will be happy with the clean sheet, as that means that a goal in Czech Republic would give their opponents a mountain to climb.
Jablonec have not been very convincing in their domesti league so far, with 2-1-2, as they have only managed to keep one clean sheet in all these games, and that came this weekend, where they won 3-0. They need at least one goal to send this to overtime, but they must prevent Ajax from scoring.

Free Pick:
Over 2.5 Goals

Ajax is a team with huge european pedigree, and they usually play good away from home. I think they won't sit on the result from the first match and they will go out for a goal. I think we will see Over 2.5 Goals in this encounter.
