Ajax vs Heerenveen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 11 March 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: Johan Cruijff ArenA (Amsterdam).
Ajax look to have lost the battle for the title after claiming just a single point in last two Eredivisie games. De Godenzonen are now as many as ten points shy of runaway leaders PSV and only a miracle could help them lift the silverware.
Erik ten Hag ‘s side, however, still have plenty to play for since the second place grants the Champions League qualifications and knowing that AZ are only two points behind in third, the host can’t afford a slip up here. Their counterparts Heerenveeen have had another dismal campaign full of ups and downs throughout the season and they will hardly see European football next term.
The visitors currently sit eighth in the league ladder being five points adrift of the top six position s which lead to the Europa League playoffs at the end of the regular season. Jurgen Streppel’s men ha e finally managed to clinch a three-pointer last weekend beating relegation strugglers Willem II 2-0 at home with goals from Lucas Woudenberg and Reza Ghoochannejhad.
Nonetheless, Heerenveen have been struggling badly to keep things quiet at the back on travels throughout the season. They have shipped nine goals in last four games on the road and they are winless in last six away matches in the competitions (each of which has seen BTTS “come in”).
