Ajax vs Emmen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena.
The Lancers are at the top of the table with a 12-point lead over the second-placed PSV, and with just four match-days remaining, they need one more point to secure the title. Certainly the team would be going after the Eredivisie crown this Sunday.
They have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the Dutch top flight – 89 goals from 30 games, while the next best is just 66 by Alkmaar. Note that they have also conceded the least of all the teams in the competition.
Meanwhile, Dick Lukkien’s men are placed in the relegation zone, and are desperately trying to climb over the cut-off. They might have been in a reasonably good form lately, but against the best of Holland, they probably will be helpless.
Ajax vs Emmen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse encounter had ended in a 0-5 win on the road for Erik ten Hag’s men.
- They have scored five or more goals in the last five straight meetings, and have let in a total of just two goals in the process.
- At this venue, the hosts have a 100% winning record in the past decade.
- The visitors are yet to score a goal at this ground.
Ajax vs Emmen Prediction
The Lancers were unbeaten in 29 of their last 30 overall matches, and they had won 21 of their past 25 games.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in 27 of their previous 35 overall fixtures, and they have won just twice on the road after 2019.
Finally, Hag’s men also have a terrific h2h record against this foe over the years.
Taking these observations into account, expect a convincing Ajax win this Sunday.
