Tip Reasoning

  • Ajax have not conceded a first-half home league goal all season.
  • Ajax were winning at both HT/FT in 20 of their last 28 home league games.
  • Seven of Waalwijk’s 11 league defeats this term were HT/FT losses.

Ajax can get back to their rampant best

Following a shock defeat to Go Ahead Eagles in the last round, Ajax will be looking to bounce back in style here in Amsterdam as they welcome a struggling RKC, a side they have lost against just twice across 54 historical competitive meetings (W42, D10, L2).

Ajax are often straight out of the blocks as they have shown when leading at both intervals in 17 of their 24 Eredivisie games this season (71%). Those 17 HT/FT successes also account for 94% of their league wins, so if they do win, expect them to be away quickly.

In fact, Ajax are yet to concede a goal before half-time at the Johan Cruyff ArenA, while scoring more goals before half-time (21) than Waalwijk have managed in the full 90′ of all of their away league games this term!

A gulf in class leaves little room for value

Just four points separated Waalwijk from the drop zone ahead of this round, though they will be hard pressed to get anything here despite the apparent desperation for a result.

Considering the low odds available in the regular W-D-W and total goal markets, I predict a simple HT/FT success for Ajax here, perhaps by a commanding 4-0 scoreline. The odds are short, though it is about right given the difference in quality.
