Tip Reasoning

  • Ajax are unbeaten in 11 games across all competitions.
  • Ajax conceded just twice in the Eredivisie this season.
  •  Eleven of Ajax’s 15 Eredivisie games this season ended in HT/FT victories (73%).
  • Four of AZ’s six Eredivisie defeats this term came at both HT/FT.

Rampant Ajax to roll on

After becoming one of a select few teams to win each of their six Champions League group games during the week, Ajax can turn their attention back to domestic matters as they chase a 36th Dutch Championship.

The hosts have been in imperious form this term, they are yet to trail at half-time in any league game (HT: W11, D4) and never dropped a point when ahead at the break. Moreover, Ajax actually scored in both halves in nine league games (60%) – indicating they will be going full throttle from the off.

Poor-travelling AZ to flop

While AZ Alkmaar are now unbeaten in six straight games across all competitions, Ajax provide stiffer opposition than anyone they came up against during that run. The Alkmaarders did win here in 2020, though that was in the ill-fated campaign that was cancelled as AZ sat level on points with Ajax.

The visitors have picked up just seven points on the road during this Eredivisie campaign (W2, D1, L4) which is more than just five other sides and makes up for a mere 30% of their points haul.

Given all of the evidence available, I expect AZ manager Pascal Jansen’s woeful record of three defeats without reply to be extended here. As such, I predict Ajax to lead early on and hold out until full-time for a workmanlike 2-0 win over this improving AZ outfit.
