Football: Netherlands – Eredivisie
Tip: Away Win
Match Result: 1:2 WON!!!
|There will be a intense atmosphere in the Noordlease Stadium for this one as it is confirmed as a sell out, for just the second time this season.|
|Erik Ten Hag needs maximum points from Ajax’s last six games to hold any hope of becoming a title-winning Eredivisie manager. However, they are well-adrift of leaders PSV ahead of kickoff, and winning here is a must.|
|The fans may well be able to push the home side over the line here, however unlikely that may seem. Groningen have lost just twice here all season in 14 games, and have also picked up creditable draws against PSV and AZ Alkmaar here already this term.|
|Groningen remains something of a bogey ground for Ajax. The visitors have won on just two of their last five visits here in the Eredivisie (W2, D2, L1).|
|Ajax have seen over 2.5 goals scored in total in nine of their last 11 games away from home. However. five of Groningen’s last six Eredivisie games have resulted in under 2.5 goals.|
|Players to watch: Ritsu Doan (GRO) has scored three goals in his last five Eredivisie appearances. It is form that suggests the young Japanese winger is a hot prospect for the future.|
|Matthias de Ligt became the youngest player to have four caps for the Netherlands during the international break. He is just one of Ajax’s many young stars set to make an impact on the future of his club and country.|
|Stat attack: Ajax have scored 2+ goals in 14 of their last 17 games, losing just one of them.|
|Quality or quantity? Hakim Ziyech (AJA) is a regular in the Eredivisie team of the week with his goals (eight) and assists (11) haul to date. On the flip side, he has made more unsuccessful crosses than any other Eredivisie player so far this season (197).|
