Ajax to Win to Nil
Ajax reaffirmed their superiority in the Eredivisie with a resounding 5-0 win over their nearest rivals PSV last weekend, securing their eighth victory and clean sheet combination of the campaign after just ten matches in the process. Another win to nil looks possible for the champions against a Heracles outfit they shut out both home and away last term, so side with the Amsterdam giants again on Saturday.
Half Time/Full Time – Ajax/Ajax
Ajax have been a cut above the rest once again in the Netherlands in 2021/22 and their dominance has been reflected in a key stat. De Godenzonen have been leading at half time and full time in an incredible 80% of their Eredivisie assignments since the summer and we’re tipping Erik ten Hag’s formidable team to get their noses in front early again when they visit Heracles.
Over 2.5 Ajax Team Goals
The champions have been blowing teams away this season and they have rattled the net a whopping 3.7 times per 90 minutes in the Eredivisie. Ajax have notched three or more times in six of their ten league skirmishes so far and having registered seven times over two encounters with Heracles last year, we’re tipping the title holders to deliver the goods in the over 2.5 team goals market this weekend.
Heracles vs Ajax: Match Preview
Heracles team news
Elias Oubella and Kasper Lunding are both ruled out for Heracles due to knee complaints while Adrian Szöke is also doubt. Following successive defeats on the road, Heracles will be relieved to back in Almelo this weekend where they have won twice on the bounce, though their chances of completing a hattrick of home victories at Ajax’s expense feel very slim.
Ajax team news
Maarten Stekelenburg and Sean Klaiber are injured, while first-choice stopper Andre Onana is still suspended. Ajax annihilated PSV 5-0 last weekend in a stunning show of strength and though their lead at the top of the Eredivisie currently stands at a modest four points, the champions are expected to pull away sooner rather than later. With a Champions League test at Borussia Dortmund on the horizon, Erik ten Hag could choose to shuffle his pack a little on Saturday.
