Sturm Graz vs Ajax, Champions League, Qualifying Round 2, August 1
Ajax confirmed their favorite status seven days ago when they reached a comfortable victory with a score of 2-0 over Sturm Graz in the first leg of the Champions League second qualifying round. Even though the tie has not yet ended, the Austrians will need a miracle to achieve victory against such a strong team.
Sturm Graz got the right to participate in the Champions League for the first time in seven years, after finishing the national championship second behind Salzburg. Nevertheless, they were not lucky with the draw, which gave them Dutch giants as the opponents, who strengthened their chances after the first game.
However, some bookmakers expect that the hosts will try to create at least some kind of drama in the upcoming match. Last weekend they scored three goals against Hartberg and won 3-2 at Merkur Arena.
