  • Competition: Netherlands - Eredivisie
  • Date: Thursday, 26th, January 2023
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK / 21.00 CET
  • Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam)

Ajax, the three-time consecutive champion of the Netherlands (not counting the 2019/20 season that was interrupted due to Covid), is not even a pale shadow of that dominant club this season, because their game does not look promising, and the chances of them defending the throne and registering their fourth consecutive title, a total of 37, are getting smaller and smaller. A new coach arrived this summer, since Eric ten Haag left them, the playing staff has also changed a lot, so these "sloppy" results should not be surprising. Sons of the Gods, as this club's nickname reads, currently occupies the fifth position with 33 points won, but they still have a chance to finish the season at the very top, since Feyenoord are currently "running away" from them by only 5 points.

By finishing second in the Eerste Divisie last season, Volendam managed to secure direct promotion to the Dutch football elite for the first time in 13 years. It is logical that the primary goal of the guys in the orange-black outfit will be to stay in the company of the best, but it is certain that they will not have an easy task to achieve that. After 17 games played, the club from the north of the Netherlands managed to collect 12 points on their account, which leaves them in the relegation zone, but with the same number of points as the first team that is currently in the safe zone.

Ajax vs Volendam Betting Tips: AH1 (-2)

This will be the third meeting of these teams in the current campaign. The first was played late in September within the KNVB Beker, where Ajax triumphed only after extra time with 4-2, and with the same result, only in regular time, the club from Amsterdam celebrated in the second respectively the first duel in the Eredivisie.

Ajax shared the spoils with Feyenoord in the big "De Klassieker" last weekend (1-1). It was, believe it or not, the fifth consecutive draw for the reigning champions in the Eredivisie, who recorded their last victory on October 22 last year, but the match with the newcomers will be a great opportunity to get back on the winning track.

The impression is that Alfred Schreuder's chosen are not nearly as confident as in previous years. Also, a home performance of three tied games without a win is something we are not used to from them. But, despite the colorful results, Ajax is also still a candidate for the very top of the table at the end of the season.

Maybe Ajax can't boast of recent form, but with the goalscoring performance they definitely can. Without any doubt, the attack is the strongest weapon of the Amsterdammers. They have found the back of the net 46 times this season, 26 of them at home, which means they are scoring over 3 goals per game. Outstanding performance!

There is no doubt that Ajax's attacking segment will stand out in the best possible way, bearing in mind that their opponent, the Volendam team, makes cardinal mistakes in defense. This is best evidenced by the fact that they are by far the worst defensive team with 42 goals conceded, which is an average of 2.47 per game.

Not too many words should be wasted on the quality between these teams and who is the favourite. It's almost February and Ajax are still winless in the Eredivisie in the new calendar year. Without a doubt, we believe that the Amsterdammers will vent all their anger on the debutant and outclass him by at least 3-4 goal difference.

Ajax Team News

Ajax holsters with goalkeepers since the start of the season. Jay Gorter is ill, while Remko Pasveer and Maarten Stekelenburg are nearing the end of their careers. In that case, the Amsterdam club found an adequate replacement, signing Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli in this winter's transfer window.

Alfred Schreuder, who was replaced by Erik ten Haag this summer, will not be able to count on Ahmetcan Kaplan, Youri Baas and Florian Grillitsch against Volendam, as all three are recovering from injuries.

Meanwhile, coach Wim Jonk has no major personnel problems, as offensive player Francesco Antonucci will be the only absentee from the visiting team. He is long-absent and his return is still unknown.

The 21-year-old Moroccan, Ibrahim El Kadiri, was ill and missed the opening four games of 2023. However, he was on the bench last match, so he could now return in the important match against Ajax.
