Ajax vs ADO Den Haag: Prediction

Ajax are into the KNVB Cup third round after a 4-3 victory at Telstar in which ten Hag decided to mix it up and give some new kids a chance to shine.

De Gondenzonen still hold #1 spot at Eredivisie table despite suffering two consecutive defeats by the title challenging AZ and likable underdog Willem II.

In Amsterdam, till week before last, Ajax was undefeated. With a record of 7-0-1, The Lancers are still everyone’s least favorite ground to visit. Tricolores caught them at the bad time but ten Hag’s team will be itching to get back on track.

ADO Den Haag had kind of resurgence in the last few weeks, following a resignation of Fons Groenendijk. While their board is ambitiously going for the one and only Alan Pardew, Dirk Heesen has tidied the ranks and The Storks picked up a point in three of last four rounds.

That’s a far cry from season’s beginning, when Hague side managed eight defeats in first ten rounds which ultimately has them second-to-bottom, three points away from safety.

With two wins from eight games away from Cars Jeans Stadion, The Storks aren’t among the worst of the Dutch topflight. But since the end of October, they are to get anything from their travels. I can’t see that changing after this game…

David Neres, Quincy Promes and Zakaria Labyad are out for Amsterdam side whilst Daley Blind’s fighting an illness and is unlikely to feature.

Tom Beugelsdijk broke his wrist recently which make him only MIA player for the guests.

Even my grandma knows The Sons of Gods are clear favorites and that ADO will have an unpleasant excursion to the Sin City. So let’s go with some Asian handicap on this one. Really liking the odds on -2.5. If you have a few bucks to spare, I’d try correct score 4:1. The Storks have proven capable to score at least once playing away from home (failed to do so three times) while the champions will want to end their bad run in recognizable fashion.
