The latest tips and Jong Ajax vs De Graafschap predictions

De Graafschap to win

The home team looked very uncoordinated in their opening match, while the visitors were at least solid defensively. Although Jong Ajax had more possession of the ball in the previous matchday, they struggled when they didn’t have the ball. Based on that analysis, I think it will be the away team who will get the 3 points.

Over 2.5 Goals

8 of the last 10 head-to-head encounters ended with more than 2.5 goals. One of the reasons is that both teams usually score in each duel. In the last match of the home team there were a total of 5 goals, I think this time there will be at least 3. In addition, in 7 of the last 8 meetings we saw BTTS which increases the odds of a wide result.

Both teams to score

Despite being outplayed in the previous round, the home team at least managed to score their first goal of the season. The away team will go all out in this round to score for the first time this year. The Sons of the Gods have not kept a clean sheet in their last 16 head-to-head meetings. So it is likely that we will see goals in both goals.

Jong Ajax vs De Graafschap match preview and latest team news

Jong Ajax

Coach Dave Vos will have to make some changes to improve the team’s performance, which looked pretty bad on the opening day. Their first opponent was Groningen who were very convincing in their approach to the penalty area.

Ajax’s second team held up to 64% of the ball but only managed 3 shots on target. On the other hand Groningen shot 12 times off target and were successful on 4 occasions. Christian Rasmussen scored the only goal for The Sons of the Gods.

De Graafschap

The Superfarmers had a somewhat inconsistent first match, in which they were slightly better but not very effective. Jan Vreman’s team had 60% of ball position but it was their opponents who had more shots on target.

After 90 minutes of play, neither team was able to score at least once. Goalkeeper Mees Bakker was the team’s best player, making 5 saves to keep a clean sheet..
