Ajax vs Willem II: Prediction
To no one’s surprise, Ajax is a heavy favorite and they come into the match on the back of a 15 match unbeaten run in the league.
Having won 13, drawn 2 (both on the road), with a ridiculous goal difference of +40, they’re simply bulldozing teams across Netherlands. Last game they played was fantastic 2-5 comeback win v Twente, a game in which they were 2-nil down.
The Tricolores are on a high following their 4-0 win over Sparta. With only one defeat in last seven league games, they sit 4th on Eredivisie table.
But last two meetings v Ajax weren’t kind on Willem II, having conceded eight goals. Adding their tricky record on the road (3-1-3, 11:14 GD) in the mix.
David Neres is a long-term absentee among The Lancers; a knee injury will keep him out till mid-January. Labyad will miss his third league game in a row while Quincy Promes have some muscle issues and it’s unknown how long he’ll be out.
For guests, Fernando Lewis and Michael Woud are out and won’t play in foreseeable future. Vrousai and Joao Queiros are close to return but unlikely to be fit enough while Miquel Nelom just might make it.
Ajax will win this. Whatever team they put out, de Godenzonen are a force to be reckoned with. So, we’ll go for goals.
Asian Handicap -2.5 seems like a good option. Ajax easily dispatched our unfortunate guests last two times they’ve met (0-4 and 1-4) and at home, only once failing to win with three-goals margin.
Same goes for Over 3.5 goals scored. Ajax haven’t met this quota only once and latest Willem II away trip ended in 3-3 draw.
