Heerenveen vs Ajax Prediction & Analysis

The hosts currently sit in 7th position in the league table with 13 points on board after 8 league games as they have won twice, lost twice and drawn once in their previous 5 league games.

Heerenveen come into this fixture on the back of a 1-0 win away from home against PEC Zwolle in a game which saw Zwolle’s Bram van Polen score an own goal which sealed all 3 points for Heerenveen.

On the other side of the field, the visitors, Ajax currently sit on top of the Eredivisie table with 19 points on board after 8 league games as they have won four of their last 5 league games.

Ajax come into this fixture on the back of a 1-0 loss at home against Utrecht in a game where they had 69% of ball possession with 20 shots on goal with 6 of them on target.

Taking the above into consideration, we back the odds at 1.96 for Ajax to win this fixture with a margin of more than 2 goals in this fixture. They have been firing on all cylinders in the domestic league and they are expected to continue that good rich vein of goal scoring form.

Consequently, we back the odds at 2.05 for David Neres to get on the score sheet in this game. He has scored twice and given an assist so far this season. We assume, that this game will be a high scoring encounter between both sides which should see David Neres get in the act.
