FC Emmen vs Ajax
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Wednesday, 3rd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk (Emmen).
The Eredivisie is facing one of the fiercest title races in recent memory. Both PSV and Ajax have been in menacing form since the start of the season, and with just seven match-days remaining, they still have not dropped intensity. Just two points separate them at the top, and Ajax is the one who’s doing the chasing.
Ajax has been allotted a safe game at this crucial juncture of the season and knowing them, it’s going to be a massacre this Wednesday. Emmen is already in the midst of a heated relegation battle, and at this point, it’s cruel to ask them to take on Ajax.
While Emmen has conceded the second-most number of goals in the league, just one fewer than the most, by Sittard, Ajax has scored the most by a distance. They managed 91 goals from 27 matches, and the second-best is 80 by PSV. Get this – the third best is just 57.

FC Emmen vs Ajax Prediction
Lord have mercy on whoever decides to take on Ajax right now. They are explosively in pursuit of the league title, and no matter what, they have decided to trump PSV. Keep in mind that, it took Ajax to finally put an end to the 1000-day rule atop Europe by Real Madrid. Even the likes of Barcelona, Manchester City, PSG, Bayern Munich, Juventus, etc were not able to do such a thing.
Moving on, Ajax holds a 100% winning record against this team, and impressively, has never even conceded a single goal. The last two h2h meetings saw the team putting ten goals past the helpless Emmen defense, and the reverse fixture of this tie saw a 5-0 win by Ajax.
On top of that, Ajax has scored the most number of goals in the league, while Emmen has conceded the second-most. Also, Emmen was winless in 20 of their last 24 matches, and in 12 of their last 14 at home. They are also a frontrunner for relegation, and will not possess much heart to challenge the mighty Ajax.
Expect a thorough, dominating win by the potential champions of Eredivisie.
