Zwolle vs Ajax – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Champions Ajax have top spot in their sights when they travel to take on Zwolle this weekend. Read our top three expert predictions for Saturday’s fixture below.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing.

Under 3.5 Goals

With three defeats in their first three matches, Zwolle are rooted to the foot of the Eredivisie table, though the relegation candidates have conceded just four goals so far. Result have been dreadful, though PEC are often tough to break down and Ajax could only muster two goals when they last visited the MAC³PARK Stadion in March. Those factors suggest that we are unlikely to see a glut of action on Saturday and we’re tipping under 3.5 goals to be notched with that in mind.

Ajax to Win to Nil

Zwolle are the only team in the Eredivisie yet to score a single goal this season and PEC have gone a dismal 270 minutes without hitting the net. Ajax meanwhile, have already kept two clean sheets in three league assignments this term and they kept Zwolle off the scoresheet in each of the teams’ encounters in 2020/21. Backing Ajax to win to nil again could prove a profitable move again this weekend.

Sebastien Haller to Score Anytime

Ex-West Ham striker Sebastien Haller is already up and running for the season with two Eredivisie goals in three appearances and the 27-year-old also enjoyed a productive international break where he scored twice for the Ivory Coast against Cameroon. With his confidence high, Haller looks an outstanding candidate in the anytime goalscorer stakes on Saturday.

Zwolle vs Ajax: Match Preview

Zwolle team news

Sai van Wermeskerken is Zwolle’s only injury concern ahead of Saturday’s game with a knee injury keeping the defender out of action. Elsewhere, Art  Langeler has a number of decisions to make about some underperforming players and Chardi Landu, Samir Lagsir and Gervane Kastaneer will all be pushing to start having come off the bench against Willem II last time out.

Ajax team news

Mohammed Kudus remains a doubt for Ajax with an ankle complaint while his fellow midfielder Sean Klaiber – who is inching closer to fitness – is expected to miss out again. The champions trounced Vitesse 5-0 before the international hiatus, though manager Erik ten Hag could still choose to rest a few players with a Champions League fixture against Sporting Lisbon on the horizon.
