Although they were deadlocked on 56 points with AZ Alkmaar after 25 matches when the coronavirus pandemic cancelled play last season, Ajax will be eager to assert themselves as the Netherlands' supreme side again this term.

Erik ten Hag knows there will be tougher opposition between now and next May than a Waalwijk side who only remain in Holland's top division because of unprecented circumstances after all.

So it's important they continue improving after a 1-0 away win over Sparta Rotterdam on MD1. Surely they can't slip up at home here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Ajax vs RKC Waalwijk Betting Tips

Nicolas Tagliafico was shown straight red after a deliberate handball midway through the first-half, putting Ajax down to ten men and forcing a tactical change too. Zakaria Labyad, making his first start since their 2-0 Champions League win over Lille in November last year, was sacrificed.

Four minutes later, Antony Santos broke the deadlock with an effort from distance that appeared to deceive goalkeeper Benjamin van Leer. The 20-year-old winger, signed for £14.2m from Sao Paulo in July, wheeled away to celebrate what he hopes is his first goal of many during a memorable Eredivisie debut.

Alongside Dusan Tadic and Ryan Gravenberch, the youngster is among those likely to start this weekend against a Waalwijk side who were second best throughout their 1-0 defeat by Vitesse.

Vitesse had 17 shots and if not for inspired goalkeeping from Kostas Lamprou, the score would have been much more emphatic. How will they cope against better opposition on Sunday?

Ajax vs RKC Waalwijk Correct Score Predictions

In 12 previous H2H meetings, dominant is an understatement when describing Ajax's record against this weekend's visitors (won 11, drawn one). Their sole draw was a goalless affair – seven years ago – and is unlikely to occur again this time either.

For further emphasis of my point, their most recent meeting was during last month's Eredivisie Comeback Tournament. Ajax were 6-1 winners, despite being 1-0 up at half-time. Waalwijk won't want to be reminded of the scoreline but it's almost inevitable they'll succumb to a similar fate on Sunday.
