Jong Ajax vs Helmond by JerryDrake
Play-offs chances still alive
After a long series of games without victories where Helmond Sport drew 5 and lost 2, it seemed that Helmond had lost their will and their chances to qualify to the promotion play-offs. The negative series came to an end when Helmond started winning again: 1-0 away win with Almere City and 5-1 home win with Jong Twente. Still, it could be too late.
Two laps to go
Helmond will play today against Jong Ajax and then they will last Den Bosch in the last matchday on April 25. In this moment Helmond Sport are only one point behind the 9th place (the last play-off spot). Fortuna Sittard and Maastricht have 52 and Helmond 51. Above them there are De Graafschap with 55, FC Eindhoven with 54 and Volendam with 53. Eindhoven will host De Graafschap and one thing is sure: of these two teams will not get three points and this will mean that there could be many teams in a few points distance before the last 90 minutes.
Four defeats in a row
The recent results held by Jong Ajax can motivate Helmond Sport players: 4 defeats in the last 4 games. Jong Ajax have conceded many goals (70 goals, 5 less than Oss). The first meeting played in Helmond in November has been won by the home team 3-2.
For Helmond the top scorer is the Belgian striker Brouwers (34/14) followed by Koç (35/12), de Regt (34/7) and Janssen (34/7). Jong Ajax three best scorers out of four are aged 19: Dejan Meleg (25/9), Lucas Andersen (16/6), Sam Hendriks (20/4). Lesley de Sa (17/7) is 21 years 'jong'.
Helmond coach Van Dijk stated that if they win this match, the last game will be like a final. As they must try to reach the play-offs a bet offered with odds 2.36 has to be taken in my opinion. If I think that Jong Ajax lost last 4 games (and probably lost already all motivations) then I have no doubts anymore. At the beginning I wanted to take it with Asian Handicap 1.77 but then I changed my mind. Helmond will win or will lose. Correct score: Jong Ajax - Helmond Sport 1-2
