Ajax to win and over 3.5 goals

The match

Ajax will welcome Volendam to the Johan Cruijff Arena for a midweek clash in the Eredivisie, with both sides desperately in need of a win. The home side has not won in the league in their last six matches, recording five draws and a loss. Their recent form has seen them slip to fifth place in the league, with 33 points in 17 matches, five behind Feyenoord at the top. Ajax will want to improve their home form in the second half of the season, where they’ve taken only 15 of 24 points, winning only half of their eight games at the Johan Cruijff Arena this season. The home side has been the more dominant in this fixture, winning five of their last six matches against Volendam. In the reverse match, Ajax came away with a convincing 4-2 victory away from home. This is a perfect opportunity for Ajax to end their poor run against a team that is finding it very difficult in the league so far this season.

After suffering a 2-0 defeat to Excelsior in their last league match, Volendam finds themselves just one spot above the foot of the table with 12 points in 17 matches. They are one of three sides with the same number of points this season but have a much worse goal difference of -24. Over their last six matches, Volendam has recorded two wins and four losses; however, their away form has been their major issue, managing only one win in nine outings, along with three draws and five losses. The visitors will be hoping that Ajax’s recent dip in form will afford them a few chances, but it’s hard to see them coming away with anything from this one. 

Key Statistics

  • Ajax has won five of their last six matches against Volendam
  • Ajax has scored two or more goals in seven of their last ten matches at home
  • Volendam has conceded two or more goals in twelve of their seventeen matches this season
  • Volendam has lost five of their last six away matches

The bet of our experts

Ajax will see this as the perfect opportunity to put a below-average run of games behind them and keep the pressure on the sides above them. Despite their poor league position, the visitors do possess enough quality to sneak a goal or two but should be outscored by the bigger club in what we expect to be a relatively high-scoring encounter. Our Ajax v Volendam prediction is a win for the home side and over 3.5 goals.
