Go Ahead Eagles vs Ajax by Sors
Six new players signed with the club this summer – Sander Fischer (def.) from Excelsior, Marcel Ritzmaier (midf.) from PSV, Kevin Brands (midf.) from Breda, Joey Suk (midf.) from Breda, Sam Hendriks (forw.) from Ajax and Henrik Ojamaa (forw.) from Wacker Innsbruck – but only Fischer, Brands and Suk have more than 50 appearances in this league and, in general, the majority of the players in this team are young and/or without enough experience on this level.
The hosts conceded two or more goals twice in the previous three rounds and I think that they may have bigger problems in defense in their first match of the season against one of the leading teams in the league.
Ajax suffered a heavy 1-4 loss in the visit to Rostov on Wednesday (Champions League), which is another sign of a crisis after the guests managed to win just one point from their last two games in the league against Roda (2-2/home) and Willem II (1-2/home).
Ajax’s biggest problem seems in its shaky defense, as the guests failed to keep clean sheet in any of their previous seven official matches, conceding a total of nine goals in the last four of them (2.25 per game).
In addition to that, Jasper Cillessen (first goalkeeper) signed with Barcelona on Thursday, so the 20-year-old Andre Onana will most probably start in this match.
On the other hand, Ajax is still a team with a powerful attack in Davy Klaassen (midf.), Riechedly Bazoer (midf.), Mateo Cassierra (forw.), Amin Younes (forw.), Anwar El Ghazi (forw.), etc. and the guests should be able to score enough goals against such opponent in order to secure all three points.
I think that we’ll see more than three goals in this match.
