VVV Venlo vs Ajax
2018-19 Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 18 August 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Seacon Stadion – De Koel (Venlo).
Ajax wasn’t able to take maximum points in the opening round of Eredivisie, they drew at home to Heracles last weekend. Perhaps they are concentrated on qualification for the Champions League.
They will travel to face VVV this weekend, a game sandwiched between 2 Champions League qualifying games, this midweek and next midweek.
VVV grabbed a 1-0 win away to Willem II last weekend which preceded their pre-season fine form. They are now unbeaten in their last 6 games and they will hope to grab a win this weekend as Ajax have Champions League distractions.
Many predicted a close game for VVV against Willem last week but Post’s goal created the difference between the two sides. Though Willem had greater portion of the possession and more scoring chances but VVV came out victorious.
On the other hand Ajax had more possession and scoring opportunities but converted only 1 against Heracles last weekend. They went behind in 84th minute but we’re lucky to equalize in the 88th minute to share the spoils.
It was clear that Ajax were reserving their strength for the midweek Champions League game. Thankfully they got the deserved win on Tuesday.
