Who’s going to stop Ajax? On a winning spree in the league, Ajax collected 24 points from 24 available and is now at the top of the table with a two-point lead. They have been playing good football recently across all tournaments, and their players are frequently contributing. Heracles will now visit the leaders. While you predict who will win, I’d like to inform you that the last time they met this season, the match resulted in a draw. Yeah, Ajax did dominate that game in all aspects but could not make it into the oppositions net. There were some knocking at the door from Heracles, but Ajax dealt with that pretty comfortably. Since then, Ajax has been performing nicely, and Heracles are not that good.
They are the ones to look at now, not only in the league but across all competitions. All they are doing now is win. In the recent games, they are just demolishing the opponents, controlling the game, moving around the ball nicely, and scoring goals. In the last five games, they scored 19 goals while only conceding once. Two of those games were high scoring games. They scored nine past the third-tier team Excelsior Maassluis in the KNVB round of 16 games. They also scored five goals against the league’s 17th placed team Fortuna Sittard.
Heracles is currently ranked 14th in the league because they only managed to win five games until now. It has been a difficult season for them, not scoring goals, containing possession, and converting chances. They picked one win in their last five games while losing one and drew the rest three. They scored seven goals in those matches and conceded six goals combined. Their win against FC Groningen was cheerful for the fans as they saw their team score four goals and the last two goals coming in the ending minutes.
HEAD TO HEAD
In the last five games between these teams, Ajax has got the upper hand. Ajax won three games and drew once; Heracles won one game. Although the previous games ended in a draw, Ajax did an easy double over them in the last season and scored seven goals in those matches without conceding. Heracles showed good defence and tough mentality in the previous game, with Ajax dominating the game majorly.
According to Betway, Ajax is the clear favourites to win the game. The odds are 1.05 to 29.00 in favour of Ajax.
