Ajax vs Chelsea: Champions League prediction, LIVE stream, which TV channel and how to watch online

Evening Standard Sports 3 weeks ago

Chelsea travel to Dutch champions Ajax for their third Champions League group match tonight.

The hosts have started this season in devastating style, undefeated with eight wins from 10 matches domestically giving them a three-point lead at the top of the Eredivisie table, and two wins from two in Europe.

The Blues have been slightly less emphatic, but head to Amsterdam off the back of five straight wins. Their victory at Lille in the last round of Champions League fixtures sprung their European campaign into life following a disappointing defeat in their opener against Valencia. 

The Blues will be without Ross Barkley, N'Golo Kante, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger. 

Frank Lampard delivered an update on the injury situation at a pre-match press conference at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.

"Ross will hopefully be fit to train by Thursday," Lampard said. "Rudiger trained with us today, he will be out of contention for the weekend.

"N'Golo is similarly training but we'll see for the weekend."

Chelsea face Burnley in the Premier League at Turf Moor on Saturday evening.

With so much at stake already already on matchday 3, here's how to follow all the action on Wednesday night...


TV channel and live stream information

The match will be televised live on BT Sport 3 from 5.55pm and can be streamed live online via the BT app and website, with kick-off scheduled for 5:55pm BST.

You can follow all the action and analysis on Standard Sport's LIVE blog.


Prediction: Ajax 2-0 Chelsea

Chelsea will have work to do if they don't get a result in Amsterdam, but last year's semi-finalists should be too strong.
