FC Volendam vs Ajax Odds, Bets, and Predictions

Ajax lost two points by drawing to Go Ahead Eagles a week ago, so winning against one of the sides that are fighting to remain in the Eredivisie is the prerogative for the current champions.

Over 3.5 Goals

Whenever Ajax plays, it's safe to say there will be enough opportunities to score plenty of goals. Volendam played in the Second Division for almost ten years before managing to get past the most important hurdle and finally break through to the Eredivisie last season. The last time these teams met was in 2013 when Ajax won by 4-2, but that result won't mean much today. Both Volendam and Ajax had five over 2.5 Goals this season in their eight matches.

Ajax +2 Handicap

Ajax, as expected is most impressive against teams that are not part of the top echelon of Eredivisie. Playing against a team like Volendam will give their attackers a chance to redeem themselves after failing to win against Go Ahead Eagles. The current champions should dominate possession and have opportunities to score plenty of goals.

Tough schedule ahead for Ajax

Volendam will be hoping that a midweek Champions League game against Napoli will be tough enough for Ajax to make them a bit more tired before their match on Saturday. Volendam has the worst defense in the league, they have allowed a record 23 goals this season and they are second from bottom, so having a strong back four, or five depending on the tactics by coach Wim Jonk will be the key. We can expect a closed-off game for the home side hoping to get at least a point.

FC Volendam's potential starting lineup: Stankovic, Plat, Mbuyamba, Benamar, Murkin, Mirani, Oristanio, Eiting, Ould-Chikh, Muhren, van Mieghem.

The Amsterdam outfit will continue to have an increased workload in the coming weeks playing in the Champions League in the midweek. There will be no rest before the start of the World Cup in the latter part of November, so maintaining a strong physical condition for his players is an important mission for coach Alfred Schreuder. One of the players that need to improve his goalscoring form is Dusan Tadic, the captain of the team. Even though he has accumulated six assists this season, he failed to score a single goal thus far. He was one of the best players for the team in the last few years, and his goals are essential going forward.

Ajax potential starting lineup: Pasveer, Blind, Bassey, Timber, Rensch, Taylor, Grillitsch, Tadic, Klaassen, Ocampos, Brobbey.

Team News:

FC Volendam: Francesco Antonucci, Josh Flint, Oscar Buur, and Calvin Twigt are doubtful.

Ajax: Ahmetcan Kaplan and Jorge Sanchez are missing through injury.
