Johan Cruijff Arena will witness the champions of Dutch football face one of the worst-performing teams in the mix this season. The top tier winners are on a three-game winning streak in the campaign.

The away team has lost three of their recent five fixtures in the league. Two of their recent three defeats came at home, including the 1-3 loss to Zwolle in the previous clash in their schedule.

- Only one of their last eleven matches has ended in a draw.

- The host has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
- Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at Willem.
- The away team has won only once in their last 9 clashes.
Ajax vs Willem II Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair at Johan Cruijff Arena on Thursday night in the Eredivisie. With Ajax at one side of the field, goals will not be a problem as they offer regular action in ninety minutes.
In their h2h meetings with Willem II, the reigning champions have conceded goals in three of the last four times that they have played as the host. However, the visitor’s current form in the league suggests scoring against the home team will be better said than done with their winless streak.
As such, the combined tip for over 2.5 goals and no BTTS in the game will probably be the ideal choice for the punters from the goals area in the clash. At 2.75 odds, the tip is likely to yield decent returns.
The home win in full-time is the anticipated result of the match. But the odds are low for the punters to get any favorable returns. However, the bookmakers have been kind enough to put the tip for Ajax to win with a -2 handicap at 1.80 odds. With their ground advantage, the tip doesn’t seem so off in the encounter.
