Twente vs Ajax – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Ajax are aiming to start their title defence with successive victories when they lock horns with Twente on Sunday. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

The odds presented here are always subject to change. Remember to check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds are provided by Betfred, our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Ajax Win and Over 2.5 Goals

Ajax are the dominant force in the Eredivisie and the champions threw down the gauntlet to their challengers last week with an impressive 5-0 win over NEC on the opening weekend of the new campaign. The Amsterdam giants will be keen to maintain their early momentum and having scored eight times combined on their last two trips to De Grolsch Veste, another meaty Ajax victory looks possible.

Both Teams to Score

It’s interesting to note however, that both teams have scored in 100% of the last six meetings between Twente and Ajax and the same market holds plenty of appeal on Sunday. Twente failed to score in only four of their 17 Eredivisie home assignments last term and the consistent goal-getting knack they’ve shown against Ajax in recent seasons suggests they can land a consolation blow this weekend.

Dusan Tadic to Score Anytime

Popular Serbian attacker Dusan Tadic continues to cut a talismanic figure for Ajax and the evergreen 32-year-old opened his account for the new season with a brace against NEC last week. The ex-Southampton star also notched a goal in one of Ajax’s tussles with Twente last term and fresh from his opening day double, a confident Tadic looks a prime candidate to get in on the act again on Sunday.

Twente vs Ajax: Match Preview

Twente

Just as we predicted, Twente slipped to a 2-1 defeat in their first game of the new season at Fortuna Sittard, though the one positive on a disappointing afternoon was the identity of their goalscorer. Ricky van Wolfswinkel was signed in the summer to deliver goals and the heavy-shouldered frontman hit the ground running on his return to the Eredivisie with a strike after just 36 minutes.

Ajax

We landed two of our three tips in Ajax’s 5-0 mauling of NEC last week (over 3.5 goals and Haller to score anytime) and judging by their stunning opening day display, it already feels like Erik ten Hag’s men could run away with another Eredivisie title this term. New signing Steven Berghuis impressed on his league debut for the champions, finishing the game with an assist and six key passes, though the 29-year-old will be hoping to break his duck on Sunday.
