Ajax vs Heerenveen Match Preview
Ajax host Heerenveen for their Matchday 6 clash in great form as they return after the International break, in search of their sixth win in seven outings across competitions – a streak interrupted only with a goalless draw at APOEL in Champions League Play-offs late in August.
De Godenzonen have made it past APOEL with a 2-0 win at this ground and managed to build on the success with a convincing win at Sparta Rotterdam (1-4), where Promes, Tadic, and Ziyech (x2) all found the net. They now sit a point behind Vitesse with a game in hand and we hope to see them very motivated to snatch the top spot as soon as this weekend.
Heerenveen have struggled for such pick-me-ups and we’ve seen them earn three points in their last four outings, which all came in front of the home fans. They’ve held off Feyenoord (1-1), Twente (0-0), and Fortuna Sittard (1-1) but suffered a comfortable 2-0 loss at Emmen on their only trip along the way.
De Superfriezen haven’t really been able to retain stability in the final third and found the net just once in the last three outings, which will be worrying. They’ll have a hard time shutting down the rivals but we still expect a strong defensive setup, which could make this a tough deadlock to break.
We will still back Ajax to secure the points with confidence and we’ll go for them to do so in a Home win to Nil, which comes at 13/10 with Ladbrokes. We’ve seen them rock-solid ahead of the break and they should be able to keep up their winning streak here.
However, with hope the visitors will not make it on the scoresheet, we’ll go for a somewhat unconventional contest at Johan Cruijff Arena and back Under 3.5 Goals FT at 6/4 with William Hill. Ajax scored more than three goals just once in their last five home outings.
