Reigning Eredivisie champions and most popular team in the country Ajax Amsterdam are returning to domestic obligations after short international break.

Ajax vs Heracles Prediction

Narrow victory in the UEFA Champions League against Midtjylland in Denmark was such morale booster for Erik ten Hag’s squad.

Besides being the first win in the group stages, it has given them a chance to fight for the playoffs. The follow up domestic game on a very rough away day to Utrecht was flawless for Ajax. They took three points with a convincing 3-0 victory thanks to goals scored by Tadic, Promes and Klaassen.

Youngsters Anthony and Lassina Traore have had a great start to new campaign, scoring total of nine goals in eight appearances.

Heracles are entering this clash from 10th place after collecting only eight points so far. Three out of their four away matches this season ended as convincing defeats to Willem II, Vitesse and VVV, conceding total of 11 goals. We are expecting their bad streak to continue in Amsterdam.
