Bayern Munich are at the top of their current group, but they still don’t necessarily finish in that position in the final standings, because in the final group match, the defending champions of the German Bundesliga will face their closest rivals, Ajax Amsterdam who in fact are just 2 points behind. It means this match will be a place for the Dutch eredivisie representative to take over the reins of the standings. Their match certainly will be interesting to watch and planned to be held on Thursday morning, December 13, 2018 at Amsterdam Arena.
As we said, Ajax Amsterdam is currently ranked 2nd in Group E, while in that position, they are only 2 points behind Bayern Munich who are at the top of the table. But, there is still an opportunity for the Dutch giants to finish at the top in the final standings, especially on the last match against the defending German Bundesliga champions later, they will play as the hosts.
Playing at home is still not a guarantee for ajax Amsterdam to win the match later. The reason is their opponent is Bayern Munich, which is more superior. Nevertheless, in terms of statistics at the beginning of this season, Ajax is indeed superior. In their last five matches in all competitions, Ajax successfully packed 5 consecutive wins. While, Bayern Munich only packed 3 wins.
