ADO Den Haag vs Ajax
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 24th February 2019
Kick-off at 11.15 UK/ 12.15 CET
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion (Den Haag).
The wounded beasts are looking for reparations, and it does not matter who has the misfortune to stroll in front of them, they will be hunted down. After the ego-deflating loss, Ajax had to endure against Feyenoord, they have been playing like someone possessed. More than the concession of a considerable lead to PSV in the title race, what bothers them most is the loss of their aura of invincibility.
If anything about them is sure, it’s that the players will work tirelessly until what’s lost has been regained. And they may just have the opportunity for that.
Den Haag, in spite of their satisfactory performances in the recent match-days, have always been massive underdogs against Ajax. And their h2h stats is sufficient evidence for this claim. The team also has the added pressure of being just three points away from the relegation cut-off.

ADO Den Haag vs Ajax Prediction
Ajax has scored the most number of goals overall, being the only team to go beyond the 75-goal mark, and one of the only two to touch 50. On the road, only Ajax and PSV have managed 30.
More than trends, the mentality will be playing a bigger role in the outcome of this tie. Ajax is hurting right now. And they want to put out that flame. Against Den Haag, whom they have historically as well as recently dominated, the team is expected to pull no stops and unleash all of their talent at disposal. And when Ajax looks for a morale-boosting win, they would do it in style.
The team holds a 20-2 record in h2h wins against Den, and 9-1 at this venue. More than that, this season, the hosts have been one of the worst home teams in the league, residing along with the likes of Breda and Graafschap. Also, keep in mind that, just the last match-day Ajax put five past this Breda.
Expect the guests to take this tie by the horns and record a great win to reinvigorate their pride.
