Jong Ajax vs Maastricht
Date: Friday, 23 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Sportcomplex De Toekomst (Ouder-Amstel).
The Joden are 11th in the league after 14 matches are completed. This was not expected from the reigning champions of the Eerste Divisie. Till now they have lost half of their league games and have 6 wins also. They have been scoring like champions with 26 goals but also conceded 22 in return.
This is the main reason for their defeats. They have scored in most of their losses, but could not defend their own goal. In the last 7 matches in the league, 4 were defeats and 3 were wins. The recent 9 matches in a row had over 2.5 goals scored in total.
The “Sons of Gods” are great in front of their home crowd. In 6 home games in the league, they won 5 and lost only once. At present they are on a 3 match win streak at home after the round 7 defeat to Eindhoven.
The visitors are equal on points with their opponents for Friday but lag behind due to poor goal difference. They have 5 wins and defeats each in their 14 matches. The defense has already conceded 18 goals while they scored just above a goal per match.
A 4 match unbeaten streak which includes 2 defeats ended with a win against Road in the last league game at home. Under 2.5 goals came in total from 3 of the last 5 games. In the last 6 away fixtures from all competitions, they lost and won 2 matches each. Under 2.5 goals came in 5 of the last 6 matches.
Considering the home prowess of Ajax, they will definitely have the upper hand over the Sterrendragers.
