Team News: Jong Ajax
The Jong Ajax boss John Heitinga doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game thanks to a completely healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: MVV
Owing to an otherwise full-strength squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the MVV gaffer Klaas Wels to contend with. Mitchel Keulen (Fractured Rib) misses out for this game.
When taking all factors into account, MVV will likely create enough chances to put a goal past this Jong Ajax lineup, however that realistically won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We reckon that it will be a narrow 2-1 winning score for Jong Ajax at full-time. Should be a good one.
