Heerenveen vs Ajax – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Ajax return to domestic action on Saturday with a tricky looking test at Heerenveen. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from 888sport were correct at the time of writing.

First Half Result – Ajax

Ajax’s 1-0 defeat at home to Utrecht before the international break was one of the biggest shocks of the campaign so far in the Netherlands, though we’re tipping the champions to get back to work at Heerenveen on Saturday. The hosts have several injuries to contend with and this weekend they face an Ajax side that has led at half time in six out of eight Eredivisie fixtures this term. With the standard match result markets poorly priced, backing Ajax to hold a half-time advantage again is far more palatable.

Both Teams to Score

Ajax have looked solid defensively this term, though there is evidence to suggest that Heerenveen can snatch a consolation goal against them on Saturday. De Superfriezen have a 100% strike rate after eight Eredivisie fixtures, which is actually a better record than Ajax’s. The Amsterdam giants failed to score just once in eight attempts however, so back both teams to get in on the act at the Abe Lenstra Stadion.

Steven Berghuis to Score Anytime

Steven Berghuis was really starting to catch fire in the final third before the international hiatus, netting four times in six appearances in all competitions. The increasingly influential schemer looks razor-sharp and the 29-year-old is available at an interesting price in the anytime goalscorer stakes again on Saturday.

Heerenveen vs Ajax: Match Preview

Heerenveen team news

Siem de Jong, Filip Stevanovic, Erwin Mulder and Pawel Bochniewicz will miss this game out with various injuries, leaving Heerenveen a little shorthanded. De Superfriezen haven’t beaten Ajax since 2009 and having failed to win seven of their last nine Eredivisie home matches, their chances of improving that poor head-to-head record against the champions look slim.

Ajax team news

Keeper Maarten Stekelenburg and midfielder Sean Klaiber are injured, while stopper Andre Onana is also out through suspension. Davy Klaassen is back in contention however. Ajax’s lead at the summit of the Eredivisie was cut to just a single point after their shock defeat to Utrecht last time out and Erik ten Hag will be keen for his team to reassert their domestic dominance before the Champions League returns next week.
