Last five H2Hs: Meeting for only third time in official matches

Ajax and Almere City have only met twice in official matches, both of which have ended without a winner. However, these teams have played a few friendlies as well. In their last three friendly matches, Ajax have won twice and one game has ended in a draw.

Ajax preview: Fighting for a spot in the Europa League

With two wins in their last three games in the league, Ajax have managed to stay fifth in the standings, which is the final place that leads to the Europa League next season. However, NEC are still right behind them, two points away, so Ajax will have to fight hard to win their last two games of the season or they risk dropping into the Europa Conference League playoffs.

Meanwhile, Kristian Hlynsson, Diant Ramaj, Gaston Avila, and Olivier Aertssen are out with injuries at the moment.

Almere City preview: Stress-free ending to the season

As a newly promoted team, Almere City have secured their place in the top flight of Dutch football for the next season with two games left to spare. So, overall, it has been a solid season for them as they reached their primary goal. That being said, Almere City have struggled lately and they are on a streak of 10 games without a win, although they only lost three of those matches.

When it comes to team news, Peer Koopmeiners is suspended for this match, while Yann Kitala, Danny Post, and Stijn Keller are on Almere's injury list as doubtful.

Predicted Lineup: Bakker – Akujobi, Van Bruggen, Barbet, Floranus – Kamp, Resink, Pena, Cathline – Hansen, Robinet

Will Brobbey score first?

We saw Brobbey score the first goal of the game on eight occasions this season, so he's a solid choice to score the first goal against Almere City as well.
