Ajax vs Twente
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam.
After unsuccessful trip to England where they got defeated by Liverpool in UEFA Champions League, Ajax are returning to their domestic obligations and upcoming duel against Twente FC. They are in commanding position in Eredivisie after collecting 27 points from ten matches.
The opponent should not be underestimated though. Squad from Enschede created so much trouble to all top tier teams this season, currently occupying fifth place with 18 points.
Despite that, odds on home victory are at ridiculously low 1.18 rate. Hosts might leave out a couple of players here to rest them for big UCL clash against Atalanta next week, but nothing was confirmed yet. Since we won’t find any profit in backing Ajax to win, let’s explore some alternatives.
Ajax vs Twente Head-to-head
There is some bad blood and big rivalry between these teams, especially after 2017 when Twente defeated Ajax in the national cup.
All-time stats are heavily going in favour of Ajax of course – squad from Amsterdam has 33 victories in 57 duels, while losing 13 matches.
Eleven out of last twelve meetings ended either Over 2.5 goals or with both teams scoring.
Ajax vs Twente Prediction
As mentioned above, Ajax have lost to Liverpool despite looking good on the pitch. There is clear task ahead of Erik Ten Hag’s boys if they want to reach UCL playoffs – they have to beat Atalanta at home venue next week. Domestic campaign has been under control.
The team has only one loss so far to Groningen, while all other duels ended in their favour. Lacina Traore and Dusan Tadic are the key players this season, scoring seven goals each, while also adding four assists each.
Twente have declined in form recently, losing two games to Utrecht and RKC Waalwijk. They have been very consistent when it comes to scoring though, bagging 11 goals in last five outings. We will back them to score at least one goal in Amsterdam.
