As part of the postponed third round of the Eredivisie, Ajax will try to achieve success in the match against Volendam.
|Date:||2nd November, 2023|
|Venue:||Johan Cruijff ArenA (Amsterdam)|
|Kickoff:||19:00 UTC / 21:00 CET|
Ajax failed to start the 2023/24 season successfully. To be honest, the team’s dismal performance shocked the fans. When will grades finally improve?
Personnel conclusions came quickly. Head coach Maurice Stein was sacked as a result of the ruthless defeat. The contract with the specialist was supposed to expire in the summer of 2026, but management must urgently correct the situation.
Ajax have now lost 10 games in a row. The team failed to beat Fortuna, AEK or Ludogorets. On October 29, the Amsterdam team was defeated in the championship by PSV Eindhoven (2:5).
|Ajax win 1.30||Draw 5.75||FC Volendam 9.00|
Volendam is at the bottom of the table. The club is in 16th place with seven points.
Ajax is in a catastrophic situation, but one game can change a lot. In case of defeat, Volendam will drop to the last, 18th place, and the Amsterdam club, under favorable circumstances, can even soar to 15th position.
Volendam delighted fans in two matches in October. The team beat Utrecht (1:0) and Excelsior (3:1) at home. If not for these two victories, the club would have finished at the bottom of the standings instead of Ajax.
Prediction and Bet
Ajax have made a poor start to the new top-flight season and are currently bottom of the table.
However, Ajax have the firepower needed to turn the tide and we believe the club are capable of beating a Volendam side who have lost their last seven away league games.
- Ajax win with a handicap (-1.5)
- Ajax 2-0 FC Volendam
