Venue: The Banks’s Stadium, Walsall

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Ajax: Team News

Wolverhampton Wanderers will finally play the opposition outside of Switzerland as they are set to take on Dutch runners-up Ajax in a high-profile friendly on Thursday afternoon at Walsall’s The Banks’s Stadium.

The Wolves have had a tremendous campaign in the previous term of Championship when they collected as many as 99 points to finish the competition nine clear off the second-placed Cardiff City. The Wanderers are thus back into the elite class of the English football after six years of absence and the atmosphere is slowly heating up in and around Molineux Stadium with less than a month left before the Premier League kick off.

Wolves have done a decent job so far in the transfer window. They completed the Diogo Jota and Leo Bonatini transfers as two important strikers are no longer on loan. Moving forward, they brought Benfica’s Raul Jimenez on loan, catching Portuguese first-choice keeper Rui Patricio in a free transfer from Sporting Lisbon as well.

This will be the first ever head to head tie between Wolverhampton and Ajax.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Ajax: Prediction

The list of departures is much shorter when it comes to significant names, meaning Wolves will be more than competitive in the new Premier League season. They’ve shown strength by beating Basel in the first game of the Uhren Cup nine days ago. Nuno Espirito Santo came out with a very strong squad as Rafa Mir and Diogo Jota bagged goals in a 1-2 victory for the Wolves.

Ajax are also expected to feature in a very strong squad here. It will be interesting to see if Erik ten Hag will have the new acquisition Dusan Tadic on disposal here. The former Southampton man was at the World Cup in Russia, representing Serbia. This will be the final test for Ajax ahead of the Champions League tie with Sturm Graz on Tuesday, meaning we can expect their strongest side here.

This will certainly be a highly competitive contest at The Banks’s Stadium as both teams want to get the result in order to boost up the confidence ahead of the official start of the season. I’ll go with goals at both ends, a bet priced at 4/7. Braver tipsters can try with the draw at 14/5.
