“Ajax will host Heracles at home in the ninth round of the Dutch championship on 22 November. Now the club from Amsterdam is fighting for the leadership with Vitesse. He needs to score points in every game. Will Ajax be able to win this match by a margin? – we will find out the answer in the forecast of our experts.
Leading in the table “Ajax” in the last rounds of the Eredivisie gained good shape. He has a winning streak of four in a row. True, in these meetings, the Amsterdamites mainly beat the clubs from the middle of the table and above. But here the main thing is the result, and it is.
And in recent matches, Ajax scores a lot. Even if you don’t look at the abnormally huge score in the match against Venlo (13: 0), Eric ten Haga’s team scored five goals in two matches, and three in one. The attack of this club is now tearing all rivals in the championship. Most likely, “Heracles” will not get off with one conceded ball.
Ajax are not playing so well in parallel with the Champions League championship. There he drew with Atalanta in three rounds (2: 2), lost to Liverpool (0: 1) and beat Midtjylland (1: 2). But, most likely, the pause for the national team matches gave this team a rest. Ajax will go to the game against Heracles charged to win.
In “Heracles”, of course, is not such a good situation in the table. He goes in the middle with eight points and is ahead of a couple of teams in additional parameters. This team is unstable in the championship. She had one win and one draw, as well as several defeats in recent matches.
The last meetings of this club are quite productive. Heracles have scored 4 and 3 goals in their two most recent victories. And after that, in the game against Venlo, he conceded three goals and scored two himself.
In general, this team is still looking for its own game. While it is difficult for her to reach a stable result. Often misses Heracles. His attacking play is also unstable. With Ajax, he will probably play indoor football.
