Heracles - Ajax

Netherlands Eredivisie - Erve Asito

The last team to beat Ajax were PSV Eindhoven who are top of the Eredivisie, which shows they're certainly over their early season slump. Even when Ajax were underperforming, they managed to beat Heracles 4-1 away from home, so the signs are not positive for the home side causing an upset.

Win probability

Home: 5/1 (6.0) – 16.7%

Draw: 7/2 (4.5) – 22.2%

Away: 4/9 (1.44) – 69.2%

Instead of just going for the obvious and backing the home side to win, there is much better value to be found in Ajax/Ajax which presents odds of 23/20 (2.15) which does bring the probability figures down to 46.5%, although it's still tempting.

In other markets, you may fancy avoiding the result of this game and not fully trusting Ajax after their start to the season. If that is the case, then opting for Both Teams to Score at 13/20 (1.65) would do you well given it's got a 60.6% chance of landing.

Heracles vs Ajax prediction

Heracles vs Ajax team news

Heracles

With just two wins in their last 11 games, Heracles are slipping dangerously close to the bottom three knowing that a defeat to Ajax and a win for RKC Waalwijk would close the gap to just two points.

Predicted lineup: Brouwer – Sonnenberg, Hoogma, Bakboord – Roosken, De Keersmaecker, Vejinovic, Wieckhoff – Hanssonn, Hornkamp, Engels

Ajax

Ajax are having a much improved season compared to a few months ago, but the gap to the top two or three teams in the Eredivisie appears too great to overcome. Therefore, it may be wise for Ajax to start rotating their team in the league and focus on the Europa Conference League which will be starting up again next month.

Predicted lineup: Ramaj – Martha, Hato, Rensch, Gaaei – Tahirovic, Taylor, Hlynsson – Bergwijn, Brobbey, Berghuis

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Steven Berghuis

While Steven Berghuis' goal involvement numbers aren't too impressive, just 10 in the league, he has been putting up more promising underlying figures.

The Dutch winger sits top for goal-creating actions in the Ajax squad, which averages out at 1.07 per 90 minutes.
