Ajax are easily the best team in the Dutch top flight this season and it is no wonder that they have received the top-most spot, with their 100% winning record. They will hope to keep this winning stretch going on against the rather unimpressive Heerenveen. 

They lifted the title the previous season in style as they were defeated just three times throughout the campaign. During this stretch, they found the back of the net a frightening 98 times. 

They are extremely tough to beat in front of their home crowd, especially when they play with momentum. 

They already scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition and let as well. 

Meanwhile Heerenveen have a 100% winless record, disregarding just two fixtures. 

They have a poor head-to-head record against this rival over the years and particularly so at this venue. In addition, they have a rather worrying record away from home in the past several weeks as well. 

By the looks of things expect a usual victory for Ajax in front of their home crowd this Saturday.
