Willem II vs Ajax Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Ajax will be aiming to close the gap at the top of the Eredivisie table when they travel to the Koning Willem II Stadion to take on Willem II on Saturday night. Willem II managed a narrow 0-1 victory on the road at FC Groningen, with Fran Sol scoring the winner just after the half-hour mark. On the other hand, Ajax won 1-4 on the road at the reigning champions Feyenoord thanks to a brace from Kasper Dolberg and two other goals from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Siem de Jong. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Ajax have scored at least four goals in each of their most recent away games across all competitions and I’m backing them to continue their goalscoring form here. In addition, Ajax are undefeated in their last five visits to the Koning Willem II Stadion, scoring at least three goals in four of these.

Willem II Preview

Willem II have struggled for consistency at the beginning of this competitive season, but it seems they have found some form of late. They have won four of their last six games across all competitions, including a narrow 0-1 away victory at FC Groningen last time out. They looked very well-organized at the back recently, conceding just once in their last two league fixtures. This is a big improvement for Willem II, as they conceded 18 games in the previous seven rounds. Due to the recent run of form, Willem are now tied on nine points with other three sides, two points clear of the drop zone. On home soil, Willem II were on a four-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 3-1 victory over FC Twente in their most recent home league fixture. The only good thing is that Willem have scored at least once in each of their last ten home fixtures across all competitions. The worrying fact is that Willem are winless in their last six home meetings with Ajax in the Eredivisie since a 2-1 victory back in August 2008. Fran Sol is enjoying another great start to the season, as the 25-year-old striker has already helped the team with six goals and one assist in his nine league appearances.

Willem II Team News

Ben Rienstra, Asumah Abubakar, Freek Heerkens and Victor van den Bogert are all doubts ahead of this clash.

Ajax Preview

The last time when Ajax won the Eredivisie title was at the end of the 2013/14 season and since then they have finished as runner-ups in three occasions. However, the Amsterdammers’ recent run of form proves that they are serious contenders this year. Ajax are currently on a three-game winning streak in the Eredivisie, including a comfortable 1-4 away victory at the reigning champions Feyenoord last weekend. Actually, Ajax scored four goals in each of their most recent three games in the Eredivisie. They are the division’s second goalscorers with 23 goals after nine rounds. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and David Neres have both been in excellent shape in this early part of the season, as the pair bagged eight goals and seven assists between them. Hakim Ziyech has also contributed with three goals and five assists in his nine league appearances. Ajax currently sit second in the Eredivisie table with 19 points after nine games, five points behind the current leaders PSV Eindhoven. Away from home, Ajax are unbeaten in five domestic games so far this season, scoring 16 goals in this term. In addition, they picked up four victories in their last five visits to the Koning Willem II Stadion.

Ajax Team News

Mitchell Dijks, Norbert Alblas, Abdelhak Nouri and Mateusz Gorski are all doubts.
