Cambuur vs Jong Ajax
Dutch Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 2 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Cambuurstadion (Leeuwarden).
Cambuur host Jong Ajax in one of the most entertaining games of the Matchday No 12 on Friday evening in Leeuwarden. The hosts will be hoping to return on the winning ways after suffering a 2-0 loss to table-toppers Go Ahead Eagles in the previous round. They held on to a goalless draw all up until four minutes from time when Orhan Dzepar broke the deadlock for the Eagles who doubled their lead and confirmed the victory three minutes later.
The Yellow Blues bounced back from such defeat on Tuesday when they expectedly saw off the Tweede Divisie outfit Koninklijke in the second round of KNVB Beker 2-1 at home. The head coach Rene Hake left his top scorer Karim Rossi on the bench in the mid-week cup tie. The Swiss striker played only 45 minutes in the second half and he should be ready to lead the line from the first minute in this highly-important tie with Jong Ajax.

Cambuur vs Jong Ajax: Prediction
The time has come for the horrendous head to head trend to be stopped for Cambuur. They entered this season with sky-high ambitions under Rene Hake who enjoyed a tremendous streak in the very finish of the previous term with the Yellow-Blues.
Cambuur have a respectable home record with four wins in five games so far in the season. Given they showed a fine display in a narrow defeat to leaders Go Ahead Eagles last time out, we have reasons to see the value in backing the home win at the odds of 2.90 here.
