Predictions and Odds for Cambuur vs Ajax

After dismissing their coach Alfred Schreuder, Ajax finally won a game, but there is a long way to go before they recapture their best form and make a run for another title.

Ajax Win-to-Nil

Cambuur is the worst goalscoring team in the league with only eleven goals to their credit. This is the main reason why they are in the relegation zone with not a big chance of surviving the season. They recently won only their third game of the season, but that was against someone that is in even worse shape, the bottom club Groningen. Cambuur is also the worst home team in the league with only a single win alongside nine losses. They have scored only four goals at home while allowing 17. Ajax is the second-best away team in the league with six wins, three draws, and one loss. The last time they played in Leeuwarden, Ajax won 3-2.

Over 3.5 Goals

Ajax shares the top spot in the league when it comes to over 3.5 goals matches, they had ten in 19 played, just as many as RKC Waalwijk did. Interestingly, half of those games were played when Ajax was a guest team. Cambuur only had three of those games, but none of it at home. However, when it comes to Ajax arriving at Leeuwarden, these things get a different meaning. Out of their last ten matches, only three had fewer than four goals scored. Predicting that kind of outcome once again comes without saying, especially with the way Ajax played their first game after they fired their coach, winning 4-1 in Rotterdam against Excelsior.

This is how the bookmakers are predicting the match could unfold:

Cambuur odds: 9/1 (9.00) – 11.1%

Draw odds: 9/2 (5.50) – 18.2%

Ajax odds: 1/5 (1.20) – 83.3%

Ajax is the overwhelming favorite according to the bookmakers, but considering these are quite low odds, you can look at other betting possibilities: Mohammed Kudus scoring Anytime is valued at 6/4 (2.50) – 40%, and if you are aiming at a possible shocking result, particularly in the First Half, you can take Cambuur taking the lead at odds of 15/2 (8.50) – 11.8%.

Team News, Predicted Lineups, and Preview

Cambuur

Outside looking into the situation at Cambuur it is hard to envision they will remain an Eredivisie team next season. There are too many variables that are going against them from lack of scoring to having someone who can deliver leading performances every week. They still have a chance, but something has to drastically change for them to stay in the Top Division and becomes a reality. Facing Ajax, the home team will be without Robin Maulun who is injured, while Maxim Gullit might be fit to play.

Predicted lineup: Ruiter, Bangura, Smand, Bergsma, Schmidt, Paulissen, van Kaam, Hoedemakers, van der Water, Uldrikis, Breij.

Ajax

After firing Alfred Schreuder, Ajax demolished Excelsior 4-1 thus finally ending an incredible streak of six draw games. Fortunately for the current champions, the leaders Feyenoord are only five points away so there is still time to defend their crown, and starting with the Cambuur match, they need to find their form sooner rather than later. John Heitinga has taken over the team on an interim basis until there is a new coach in place. Ajax has only Florian Grillitsch and Ahmetcan Kaplan as possibly unavailable for the Leeuwarden trip.

Predicted lineup: Rulli, Rensch, Timber, Alvarez, Wijndal, Taylor, Kudus, Klaassen, Berghuis, Bergwijn, Tadic.
