Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Den Bosch v Jong Ajax match are shown here - as well as the best betting odds.
Den Bosch will be looking for an improved result here after the 3-0 Eerste Divisie defeat last time out to Go Ahead Eagles.
Antoine Rabillard (17') and Bas Kuipers (44') scored for Go Ahead Eagles.
Den Bosch have been quite ineffective in attack in more recent games. Their sum of goals equals just 3 against opposing sides over the course of their last 6 fixtures. In those games, Blue White Dragons have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them come to 12. Let’s see whether or not that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Their prior results show that Den Bosch:
- haven't beaten Jong Ajax in their last 8 matches in the league.
- haven’t won at home in the past 4 matches in the league. Their fans aren't happy.
Jong Ajax will come into the game after a 2-3 Eerste Divisie win in the defeat of SC Cambuur in their last fixture.
For Jong Ajax, the goalscorers were Kenneth Taylor (8'), Devyne Rensch (82') and Enric Llansana (88'). Mees Hoedemakers (15') and Michael Breij (22') scored for SC Cambuur.
Proving their partiality to action-packed matches, goals have been scored 30 times in the last 6 games in which Jong Ajax have taken to the pitch, making it a mean average of 5 goals per clash. Opposing teams have hit 15 from this total.
Looking at their past form shows that Jong Ajax:
- haven't been defeated by Den Bosch in games played away from home for the previous 3 league games.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 league matches away from home.
Head to head

Team News: Den Bosch
Jordy van der Winden (Knee Surgery) and Junior van der Velden (Hip Injury) won’t be playing for Den Bosch boss Erik van de Ven.
Team News: Jong Ajax
Due to a fully injury-free group available to select from, Jong Ajax boss Mitchell van der Gaag does not have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash.
In our view, Den Bosch will do well to break down this Jong Ajax outfit who should score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore fancy a 0-1 winning margin for Jong Ajax at the end of this one.
We’ll see what happens.
