UEFA Champions League - How to watch Ajax vs Benfica on March 15, 2022

March 14, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The Dutch and the Portuguese teams played the most entertaining first leg of them all. Find out if the second leg is as exciting as the first one by using this guide.

The first round of games in the UEFA Champions League KO stage saw Benfica and Ajax playing what was arguably the best of the first leg ties. Now, both teams will try to live up to the hype in the return leg of their Round of 16 tie set to take place at Johan Cruyff Arena.

The home team will enter this match on a three-game winning streak across all competitions, including a 3-2 win against Cambuur this past weekend. This will be Ajax's fourth home game in the ongoing UEFA CL season, with each and everyone of those ending in wins for the Ajacieden.

Speaking of individual performances, Ajax will rely on Sebastién Haller as their main goalscoring threat, with the footballer finding the back of the net eleven times in the competition. Other top-rated players to look out for will undoubtedly be Antony (two goals and four assists) and Dusan Tadic, who has played the full 90 minutes in his five appearances with the red and white side in the tournament.

On the other side of the pitch, Benfica enter this stage on a six-game run without a loss, which includes three wins and three draws. The Eagles will be playing their fourth UEFA Champions League match away from home in this tournament, but their record is not that impressive, earning only one win, three draws, and one 5-2 loss against Bayern München.

Speaking of individual performances, Benfica will have to rely heavily on Darwin Núñez to try and make something happen against Ajax. The Uruguayan sensation has made a name for himself and has been identified as the team's main threat in front of goal, with three goals to his name. Joao Mario and Julian Weigl will also be key to the team's efforts, as they have handed three assists between them for Benfica in the tournament.

After UEFA's decision to eliminate away goals as a tiebreaker, both teams will be forced to try and win the game in order to reach the next round of the competition. Any draw after 90 minutes will see the game being decided in extra time. If the aggregate remains level after 120 minutes, penalty kicks will be used to determine the winner.

Here are the key elements we have to consider prior to the start of this interesting game.
