Ajax vs PEC Zwolle Prediction & Match Preview

Ajax vs PEC Zwolle
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam.

Despite the fact they are sitting at the top of Eredivisie table, Ajax Amsterdam are not doing well lately. It’s been a while since this squad had a negative streak of three consecutive losses across competitions. That’s the case now after losing the home ground to Atalanta on Wednesday night and saying goodbye to UEFA Champions League playoffs.

Now they are back to domestic obligations and upcoming duel versus PEC Zwolle in Amsterdam this Saturday. Anything but a convincing win would surely raise many alarms within the club. Visitors are undefeated in the last four divisional games, but bookies are giving them minimal chances to snatch a point here.

Erik ten Hag has been Ajax’s head manager for three years now. Are his days numbered due to recent elimination from UCL and last week’s loss to Twente? Stats are looking more than solid, winning nine games while losing two, and current goal difference is 43-7. On average Ajax are scoring 3.5 goals in Eredivisie duels at this venue, while conceding 1.00. Key player so far has been Serbian offensive midfielder Dusan Tadic. He scored eight goals and provided three assists.

PEC Zwolle are entering this clash from 11th position after collecting 12 points. Team’s main goal for the season it to stay away from the relegation zone as far as possible, so things are going really well for them. Expecting anything but a loss in Amsterdam would be too optimistic though. We will back hosts to win the match and to keep a clean sheet.
