PEC Zwolle vs Ajax Prediction
Inconsistency has certainly been at its peak for PEC Zwolle, who now have just two wins to boast of, from their previous six games. The hosts failed to capitalize on the 3-1 victory they secured over Den Haag at home and were taken down by a whopping 4-0 scorecard last week in their clash with Heracles.
Ajax, on the other hand, bounced back to winning ways after the narrow 1-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of English outfit Chelsea. The away side slotted four unanswered goals past Feyenoord in their most recent matchup, maintaining their healthy six-point cushion at the top of the ladder.
Furthermore, the visitors are still unbeaten in the Eredivisie and will be making the trip to Zwolle on the back of a two-match winning streak in their outings. It is also worth mentioning that Ajax have been too hot to handle for the hosts in their previous meetings here, with the table-toppers coming out on top in each of their last four clashes.
Taking into account that the only two wins for the hosts at home so far have also come against sides that are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder, count on Ajax to win both halves without breaking much of a sweat.
Additionally, the visiting contingent have been hard to thwart in the final third and have scored two goals or more in four of their last five trips in the league. Considering that two out of their previous three head to head fixtures here have also witnessed over 3.5 goals on the charts, it is certainly well within reason to expect more of the same this week.
