Best Odds and Predictions for Excelsior vs Ajax

Remarkably, Ajax had another drawn match earlier in the week against the lowly Volendam and now faces an even bigger mountain to climb when it comes to catching leaders Feyenoord for the Eredivisie title.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The stats are pretty clear on this occasion, in six straight games both teams have scored goals, and now with Ajax failing their expectations, nothing is off the table. Excelsior had four out of their last five matches at home without both teams scoring, but they do have some high-scoring games overall. It seems that every time they lost a match with a big difference they at least scored once. Ajax is struggling like we haven't seen in the last few years, and the home team will certainly have a positive attitude about scoring.

Over 3.5 Goals

No team in Eredivisie had more than 3.5 Goal matches this season than Ajax, they had nine. Excelsior is seventh in that specific ranking with seven matches when there were more than three goals involved. Looking at their h2h stats for this occasion, it's quite impressive how they both get to score a lot of goals, especially Ajax. Four out of their last five games covered the 3.5 goals mark.

Provisional Lineups, Preview, and Team News

Excelsior

The Rotterdam team had some scary-looking losses against Ajax. The last time they met, this season, Ajax won 7-1, last year in Amsterdam it was 6-2, and their last meeting in Rotterdam ended with a 6-2 Ajax win. Excelsior did find some winning feeling lately, since the season restarted they have won twice in matches where they were the favorites, against Groningen and Volendam. The latter just managed to steal away a point from Ajax in Amsterdam of all the places. The home side is missing Jacky Donkor and Yassine Ayoub through injury while Kik Pierie is doubtful to participate.

Provisional lineup: van Gassel, Horemans, Nieuwpoort, el Yaakoubi, Tjoe a On, Baas, Fein, Azarkan, Goudmijn, Driouech, Kharchouch.

Ajax

It's hard to comprehend what is happening with Ajax. Since losing to PSV in the first week of November, they are without an Eredivisie win. They have drawn six games in a row, including against some of the teams that are in the bottom half of the rankings like Volendam which happened earlier this week. Coach Alfred Schreuder was sacked after drawing against Volendam, and the youth team coach John Heitinga has taken over the team on an interim basis. There are some health concerns with the team, but this is a weak excuse for a club that is trying to repeat as the champions. Ajax's goalscoring has dropped down the cliff, in this calendar year they failed to score twice in league matches, while their only win came against Den Bosch in the Dutch, a game they won 2-0. Ahmetcan Kaplan, Floridan Gillitsch, Youri Baas, and Jay Gorter are having injury problems and are doubtful to play against Excelsior.

Provisional lineup: Rulli, Bassey, Wijndal, Timber, Sanchez, Taylor, Berghuis, Klaassen, Tadic, Brobbey, Bergwijn.

Player to Watch: Steven Bergwijn

Bergwijn has been tied as the top scorer for Ajax this season with eight goals and also has four assists on the record, but like the rest of the team, he is struggling lately. He will need to find his best form for Ajax to have any chance of winning.
