Ajax vs PEC Zwolle Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Ajax will be aiming to extend their Eredivisie winning streak to three games when they welcome PEC Zwolle at the Amsterdam ArenA on Saturday night. Ajax head into this tie on the back of a 0-2 victory on the road at Venlo last time out thanks to two second-half goals from Donny van de Beek and David Neres Campos. On the other hand, PEC Zwolle won 2-0 at home over FC Twente thanks to goals from Youness Mokhtar and Bram van Polen. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Zwolle have enjoyed an impressive start to the season, but Ajax should be able to grab all three points in this one as their home form in the Eredivisie over the past months has been impeccable, and they also have more quality within their squad than Zwolle. In addition, Ajax have won six and draw one of their seven home meetings with PEC Zwolle in the Eredivisie.

Ajax Preview

Ajax kicked off the new Eredivisie campaign with an unexpected 2-1 defeat on the road at Heracles, but bounced back with two successive wins over FC Groningen and Venlo in their most recent league fixtures. The good news is that the Amsterdammers managed to put their disappointing elimination from the Europa League play-offs behind them and they can now focus only on their domestic campaign. Ajax currently sit in 6th spot in the Eredivisie table tied on six points with four other sides, just one point off 3rd-placed Saturday’s opponents PEC Zwolle. At home, Ajax were on a three-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 3-1 victory over FC Groningen in their most recent home fixture. Overall, the Amsterdammers are unbeaten in their last 12 Eredivisie home games, winning eleven in the process. Furthermore, Ajax are undefeated in their seven home meetings with PEC Zwolle in the Eredivisie, registering six victories and one draw in this term. In addition, Ajax have scored at least two goals in five of their seven home games against PEC Zwolle. Hakim Ziyech has been Ajax’s most dangerous player in front of goal in this early part of the season, helping the team with two goals and one assist in his three league appearances.

Ajax Team News

Norbert Alblas, Mateusz Gorski, Justin Kluivert and Abdelhak Nouri are all doubts ahead of this game.

PEC Zwolle Preview

PEC Zwolle had an excellent pre-season campaign and have started the new Eredivisie season in a similar manner. They beat Roda JC Kerkrade 4-2 at home in the opening round before drawing 1-1 on the road at Sparta Rotterdam. Zwolle bounced back to winning ways prior to the International break as they beat FC Twente 2-0 at home. Overall, they were on a twelve-game unbeaten run across all competitions before losing 2-0 at the hands of SC Heerenveen in a friendly game during the International break. PEC find themselves in an unexpected 3rd position in the Eredivisie table with seven points under their belts after three rounds, two points behind the joint leaders Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven. The bad news is that Zwolle have only won once in their last eight away games in the Eredivisie and are currently on a four-game winless streak. In addition, Zwolle have failed to pick up a victory in any of their seven visits to the Amsterdam ArenA. Head-to-head, PEC are winless in their last six meetings with Ajax across all competitions since a 1-0 home win in the Dutch Super Cup back in August 2014.
