Ajax will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 1-3 Eredivisie triumph vs FC Zwolle.

In that match, Ajax managed 47% possession and 9 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. For Ajax, the goalscorers were Kristian Nökkvi Hlynsson (12') and Chuba Akpom (24', 84').

John van 't Schip's Ajax have hit the target 6 times in their past half-dozen outings. The comparative tally of goals that have been scored against them in those games amounts to 10.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Ajax:

  • haven't been beaten in the league by Go Ahead Eagles in their previous 3 games.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 10 home league matches. Visiting teams have certainly not had an easy time of it here.

Go Ahead Eagles go into this game following a 3-0 Eredivisie win to defeat Excelsior in their most recent outing.

In that match, Go Ahead Eagles had 45% possession and 19 attempts at goal with 5 on target. For Go Ahead Eagles, the goals were scored by Willum Þór Willumsson (41'), Gerrit Nauber (70') and Evert Linthorst (81'). Excelsior got 10 shots at goal with 0 of them on target.

A tendency of at least one side getting a clean sheet in games involving Go Ahead Eagles has become apparent recently. Looking at their last six meetings shows that it’s happened 6 times. In those clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal tally of 6 and Go Ahead Eagles have scored 6. Let’s see whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.

Looking at their past form shows that Go Ahead Eagles:

  • remain undefeated by Ajax in away games against them for the last 2 league games.
  • are without a win away from home in their last 2 league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A review of their prior head-to-head meetings stretching back to 07/05/2017 shows that Ajax have won 2 of them & Go Ahead Eagles 1, with the tally of drawn results being 3.

In all, 14 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 9 from de Godenzonen and 5 netted by Trots aan de IJssel. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.33.

The previous league game between these sides was Eredivisie match day 26 on 14/01/2024 and the score finished Go Ahead Eagles 2-3 Ajax.

In that game, Go Ahead Eagles had 39% possession and 23 shots on goal with 11 of them on target. The goals were scored by Victor Edvardsen (44') and Joris Kramer (58').

At the other end, Ajax had 17 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Brian Brobbey (27'), Benjamin Tahirović (45') and Devyne Rensch (72') scored.

The referee was Pol van Boekel.

🗞️ Team News: Ajax

Josip Sutalo (Knock), Brian Brobbey (Hamstring injury), Steven Berghuis (Knee injury), Gastón Ávila (Knee injury) and Jordan Henderson (Muscle injury) will not be taking part for Ajax gaffer John van 't Schip.

It seems likely that de Godenzonen will probably go for a 3-4-2-1 system this time and select Diant Ramaj, S. H. Mannsverk, Jorrel Hato, Devyne Rensch, Kristian Hlynsson, Kenneth Taylor, Benjamin Tahirovic, B. van den, Mika Godts, Steven Bergwijn and Chuba Akpom.

📰 Team News: Go Ahead Eagles

Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Go Ahead Eagles boss René Hake to contend with. Philippe Rommens (Syndesmotic ligament tear) won’t be in action.

From our viewpoint, Trots aan de IJssel will likely play in a 4-2-3-1 lineup, starting the game with Jeffrey De Lange, Mats Deijl, Gerrit Nauber, Joris Kramer, Bas Kuipers, Evert Linthorst, Xander Blomme, Bobby Adekanye, Willum Willumsson, Jakob Breum and Victor Edvardsen.

💡 Prediction

We’re thinking that Ajax should stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.

At the other end, Go Ahead Eagles will not find it easy to find the back of the net but we do fancy them seeing enough of the ball to score, too.

We’re predicting a controlled 3-1 margin for Ajax at the end of this one.
