Heracles vs Ajax: Prediction
Coach Erik Ten Hag is having a couple of unsolved issues for this game. Quincy Promes is still recovering from an injury, as well as Labyad and David Neres.
News of Hakeem Ziyech signing for Chelsea was hardly a surprise for anyone, but he will stick with the squad for another three months at least and help to win another piece of silverware.
Ajax have had a small hick-up in Eredivisie in late January losing to Groningen on the road. Four out of last five games were victorious though.
Heracles had some Europa League hopes, but the recent streak of four losses in last five outings has crippled them, both mentally and standings wise. They are 9th with 29 points, six behind Utrecht.
Away win pick is hardly going to get us any profit, so we are choosing between Ajax keeping a clean sheet or not.
Heracles scored 26 goals in 11 games at this stadium, which is quite impressive. This said, Both to score & Away win is a logical choice.
If you are feeling a little bit more adventurous, consider going for Heracles Over 1.5 team goals at 3.00. Don’t be surprised if this match ends with a lot of goals like 2-3 or 3-5 FT.
