Ajax vs Heracles: Preview and Predictions

Ajax vs Heracles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 8 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:45 UK
Venue: Amsterdam ArenA (Amsterdam).

Ajax were lucky to have passed the stern Groningen test unharmed last Sunday. The team led by Erik ten Hag had huge troubles in the first half of the clash at Noordlease Stadion where Groningen were a goal up early on. Faber’s side even had a huge chance to double the lead, but Mimoun Mahi missed the penalty. Groningen were brutally punished later on as Justin Kluivert and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar created a second-half comeback to lead Ajax to the third consecutive win in Eredivisie.

De Godenzonen have somehow managed to keep ground on the runaway leaders PSV. The gap at the top of the standings is still seven points, but Ajax should have a nice chance to reduce it after the Matchday No 30. Ten Hag’s men are about to ply Heracles who will come into this in poor spirits after claiming just a single point in last two league outings.

Heraclieden fell 1-2 at home to Heerenveen last weekend. They’ve generally been struggling for results on travels ever since the start of the season and it is really hard to expect miracles from there against the league’s heavyweights here. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has instilled some confidence into him netting the match-winner in Groningen and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer here against Heracles.
