    Ajax set to get back to winning ways against Volendam
    24/01/23 2856

    On Thursday night, Ajax host Volendam at the Johan Cruyff Arena as the reigning Dutch champions look to get back to winning ways in the Eredivisie.


    Alfred Schreuder’s team heads into this clash on the back of a six-game winless run in the Eredivisie, including drawing their last five league matches. Last time out, the champions drew 1-1 with league leaders Feyenoord in Rotterdam.

    The recent run of form has seen Ajax drop to fifth place in the table and five points behind Feyenoord in the race for the Dutch top-flight title.

    Even Ajax’s usually stellar home form has dipped of late, as they head into this game on the back of just one win in their last five matches at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

    Despite the recent underwhelming home form, Ajax has lost just one of their last 16 Eredivisie matches on home soil.


    The visitors are in big danger of suffering relegation this season, as they currently occupy one of the two automatic relegation positions in the Eredivisie.

    However, Volendam is only in the relegation zone courtesy of an inferior goal difference to the teams directly above them.

    Their recent league form has been poor, as a record of five defeats in their last seven matches in the Eredivisie illustrates.

    However, before a 2-0 loss at Excelsior last time out in the Dutch top-flight, Volendam were on a short two-game winning run, so there is hope for reviving their season.

    Volendam have been poor travellers in the Eredivisie, as they have won just one of their nine away games in the Dutch top flight.

    The fact that they have conceded at least two goals in six games on their travels in the Eredivisie this season has hampered their survival chances.

    What does Forebet predict?

    Forebet predicts that Ajax will record a victory in a high-scoring encounter to get back to winning ways and enhance their chances of making up ground on league leaders Ajax.
