Important information about Emmen vs Ajax
Ajax needs a finishing touch to a disappointing part of the season
There is not much confidence in what Emmen can achieve against Ajax. Their h2h matches are one-dimensional with Ajax winning with ease. Emmen is one of the clubs that was supposed to fight against relegation, and nobody is surprised that they are in the bottom three of Eredivisie. Emmen has trouble scoring goals with only Ole Romeny scoring more than once, and he got four goals on his record. That is almost half of all the goals Emmen scored this season, and at the same time, they allowed 24. There is little doubt that Ajax is the clear favorite here, and the home side will try their best to give a good effort and to make their fans happy with their fighting spirit against a formidable opponent.
Emmen's potential starting 11: van der Hart, Bouchouari, Araujo, Veldmate, Burnet, Bernadou, Veendorp, Mendes, Diemers, ter Haar, Zivkovic.
One would assume that Ajax players are ready to take a break from the current season which is already filled with disappointments. They failed to advance into the playoff stages in the Champions League and lost to PSV in the derby match last weekend. A win against Vitesse in the midweek was a given, but again they failed. There is little comfort in their stats and the goal-scoring record which is expected anyways because of the lack of quality from many of the teams in Eredivisie. The most important matches were lost, and some of those defeats hurt the teams' confidence. There will be more than a few of Ajax players who will travel to the World Cup, but the rest of the team will have plenty of time to prepare for what is coming in the second part of the season when mistakes won't be tolerated. The manager Alfred Schreuder is already under pressure as the team’s performances have dropped significantly since the last season.
Ajax's potential starting 11: Pasveer, Rensch, Bassey, Timber, Sanchez, Berghuis, Alvarez, Kudus, Tadic, Brobbey, Bergwijn.
Emmen: Ahmed El Messaoudi, Jeff Hardeveld, Maikel Kieftenbeld, and Mart Lieder are injured.
Ajax: No injuries or suspensions.
