The Eerste Divisie tie at De Geusselt on Friday sees home side MVV play against Jong Ajax.
All MVV v Jong Ajax game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below including the latest game odds.
MVV will be hoping for a better result after the 5-0 Eerste Divisie defeat last time out to FC Eindhoven.
Naoufal Bannis (23', 29'), Mawouna Amevor (58'), Ozan Can Kökçü (72') and Evan Rottier (80') scored for FC Eindhoven.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that MVV have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that MVV have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 13 goals in the process.
Jong Ajax will go into the encounter following on from a 3-1 Eerste Divisie win in the defeat of NAC Breda in their last fixture.
For Jong Ajax, the goals were scored by Kik Pierie (48'), Gabriel Misehouy (59') and Giovanni (81'). Jort van der Sande (23') scored for NAC Breda.
The stats don’t lie, and Jong Ajax have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 8 goals overall. In defence, Jong Ajax just haven’t been too solid at all. Still, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern might be replicated in this upcoming game or not.
Going into this one, Jong Ajax haven’t won away from home in the past 11 league matches. Who knows how long it might last, too.

Team News: MVV
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the MVV boss Maurice Verberne to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Clint Essers (Torn Knee Ligament) misses out.
Team News: Jong Ajax
With a completely injury-free squad available to select from, the Jong Ajax boss John Heitinga has zero fitness concerns to report coming into this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Jong Ajax are likely to dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
However, MVV might well find it a difficult task scoring goals but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be pulling one back during this clash.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a comfortable 1-3 win for Jong Ajax at the end of the match.
