Ajax will be pleased with the amount of money they have received from the sale of players this summer. Ajax clearly decided to start a new era under a new manager when many of last season’s stars, including Anthony, Lisandro Martinez, Ryan Gravenbirch and Sebastien Haller, left the club.
Cambuur, on the other hand, finished ninth last season and won one game in his first four league games. Ajax are expected to win this game.
Prediction for this match: both clubs to score – no. Ajax will score more than two goals.
