Ajax vs NAC Breda
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 17th February 2019
Kick-off at 11.15 UK/ 12.15 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam).
Mitchell van der Gaag’s men have drawn the short straw for this week, and the fateful responsibility to satiate the giant’s hunger falls on them.
People love to love Ajax. It’s been years, and maybe decades since their heyday in Europe has passed. Though the team is still a powerhouse in the Netherlands, their time in the sun like that of the time of Johan Cruijff is just a far-fetched memory. But still, this club lives deep down in the hearts of football romantics.
And the last match-day, they once more reminded the world, why they are such a fan-favorite. Against the three-time defending champions of Europe’s premier competition, the team displayed magic on the field with their possession-based attacking football style. I Lancieri lost the tie, but they won something more substantial than that.
This Sunday, they host the weakest team in the Eredivisie. And, it’d be really a pointless exercise to root for the visitors.

Ajax vs NAC Breda Prediction
De Joden possesses the best offensive line in the country and has recorded a league-high 72 goals from their 21 games so far. They have not yet lost a single home tie in the Eredivisie while scoring 42 and conceding just 6 in the process. They have also scored 63 goals from their last 18 matches in front of their home crowd.
On the contrary, the visitors for this tie are easily the worst in the entire tournament. They have registered the least number of goals, and the least number of points on the board. Moreover, they have not won a single tie against Erik ten Hag’s men for the last ten years or so. The overall h2h record is 28-5, in favor of the Lucky Ajax.
Count on them to make mincemeat out of their guests this Sunday.
