RKC Waalwijk vs Jong Ajax (By: Dajkula)
At the Mandemakers Stadion in Waalwijk, the home side of RKC Waalwijk will host the youth side of Ajax II and try to take the 3 points. It will be a tall order, however, as the visitors are in fine form and have a full squad to choose from.
Ajax II has been a very hit or miss team, especially on the road. They do have excuses for a lot of those lost matches as with the youth Champions League and international matches they were often heavily depleted. That was also the case when they hosted the PSV II side and were missing 7 players. The game ended 2:2 but Ajax II has continued with positive performances. The previous 4 league matches were won and they showed something sweet away from home. Wins over Almere and especially the heavy favorite Twente may suggest the team is going in the right direction. Never the less, Ajax has been very unpredictable on the road having 3-1-6 so far. They also conceded much more than at home for a total goal difference away - 18:20. Ajax II is 8`th on the table with 32 points and they have a lot to make up for.
RKC Waalwijk is sitting on the 12`th place with 26 points and they will hardly promote this year either. There are too many erratic performances of RKC this season and they just can`t string 3 wins in a row. After one or two positive matches the third one is usually lost. RKC Waalwihk seems to play the same at home and away and the results would suggest that. Waalwijk started the second period with a fine win away against Top OSS 1:2 but as I said you can`t depend on them. Here, Waalwijk has 4-2-4 and 14:15 gd. Their home games before the break were especially effective.
There is a lot of history between the teams and it is never a dull affair. When RKC is the host the results are 2:4, 3:2, 3:5, 4:4. Do I dare to go for goals?, I do.
Ajax II is the favorite in this tie and they have potent scorers like Danilo, de Wit and Cerny available. Their away games lately have been a treat for the eyes and the last 3 went over 4.5 goals.
RKC Waalwijk doesn`t have such quality in attack but Seys and Hansson can for sure score goals.
Vaessen; Gaari - Meulensteen - Drost - Quasten; Rienstra - Spierings - Tahiri; Maatsen - Seys – Hansson
Van Bladeren; Dest - Maduro - Botman - Kemper; Ekkelenkamp - de Wit - Gravenberch; Cerny - Danilo – Lang.
