Tonight, starting 19:00 GMT, we have Jong Ajax – FC Oss, and goals shouldn’t be a problem here. But which team is going to score them?
Jong Ajax – A great season for Michael Reiziger’s men, who currently lead the table in Eerste, with 49 points from 24 fixtures, 60-35 aggregate. Has the best attack in the league, with an average of 2.5 goals scored per game. At home, Jong Ajax has five consecutive wins, without even conceding a goal. However, as we can see, the defense is not really their strong suit, but the hosts only allowed 12 goals in 11 home matches, which, in Eerste, it’s quite a challenge to manage. Jong Ajax has scored at least three goals in 6 of the last 10 championship fixtures.
FC Oss – Has a warm spot in the league, being 9th, with 36 points from 24 matches, 38-39 aggregate. Last week, defeated Almere, 5-1, at home, in what is probably the best performance shown by Oss this season. ” We did a great job offensively, regularly appearing in the penalty area. So we got rewarded with five goals,”, said coach Klaas Wels. The 44-years old manager continued and spoke about the next game, one quite difficult for his side. “It’s going to be a tough job. They are co-leaders in the Jupiler League and have a lot of quality again. Jong Ajax is the best when having the ball, so we have to make sure we keep them from having it.” On the road, FC Oss has three straight defeats, conceding at least three goals in two of them. Received at least a goal in the last 11 away matches.
Jong Ajax – FC Oss – Prediction
Jong Ajax has won the last three direct encounters, scoring at least three times in all of them. The last time Oss traveled to Amsterdam, they lost 0-7. The bookmakers are expecting a high-scoring fixture, so the odds on goals are quite a joke. But if there are to be plenty of goals, I’m pretty sure the hosts will ensure the show. That’s why I chose this prediction.
Prediction: Jong Ajax over 2,5 goals, odds 1,53
