Tonight, starting 19:00 GMT, we have Jong Ajax – Go Ahead Eagles, and we surely can’t miss the opportunity of betting on a high-scoring contest.
Jong Ajax – Still dominates the league, being first, with 55 points from 27 fixtures, 65-38 aggregate. Has the best attack and five wins in the last seven championship matches. At home, Michael Reiziger’s men have six victories in a row, scoring no fewer than 18 goals in this interval. Jong Ajax has bagged at least two goals in eight of the 12 home games this season. Cassierra, brought from Deportivo Cali (Columbia) in 2016, has been incredible, even making his debut for the big team, in Eredivisie. He scored one minute after he entered the pitch against Vitesse, on the weekend.
Go Ahead Eagles – Is having a terrible season, 17th in the Eerste rankings, with 26 points from 27 matches, 36-50 aggregate. Has five defeats in the last six games, and things aren’t looking great for Jan van Staa’s men. The 62-years old manager was brought back in December to turn things around, but his work at the team needs more improvement. On the road, Go Ahead Eagles has nine straight defeats, in all competitions, and conceded at least two goals in all of these nine games. A win to break the ice tonight? Not likely, considering that top scorer Sam Hendriks and Bruno Andrade are both injured, additions to the existing infirmary, which consists of Brem Soumaoro, Mauro Savastano and Maarten de Fockert.
Jong Ajax – Go Ahead Eagles – Prediction
On the reverse, Go Ahead Eagles won 4-1, but Jong Ajax went a man down in the first half, at 2-1 for the hosts. This fixture will surely be chance for Reiziger’s boys to take revenge and score as much as they can. And Jong Ajax surely can create plenty of score opportunities. Considering the value of the players missing from the visitors’ squad, I think Jong Ajax will dominate this fixture and will easily win this one.
Prediction: Jong Ajax over 2,5 goals, odds 1.62
