Heerenveen vs Ajax
The 9th placed team of Heerenveen host the 2nd in the table Ajax in a match which looks like to have a bunch of goals.
Heerenveen still don't have a home win in four games, which is a little bit surprising when we know this team is one of the most uncomfortbale opponents to the biggest clubs in Holland when they host them at Abe Lenstra Stadion. 2 draw and 2 losses- that's their stats at home till now and it's hard to believe the first team they will beat at their stadium, will be Ajax. Heerenveen is a team which loves the attacking football but still the beginning of the season they made so many silly mistakes in defense, that's the reason they twice lost at home against Feyenoord and Heracles with 3:5.
Ajax have an important home match in CL against Benfica on Tuesday, so I doubt they will try to demolish Heerenveen away from home, but still their team in the big favourite here. Ajax have some problems with the team, because Eiting, Ziyech, Matusiwa, Sinkgraven, El Azzouzi, Bandé, and Veltman could all miss Saturday's match through injuries. Still they have enough quality to beat Heerenveen, but I doubt it will be with such a big difference.
H2H the situation for Heerenveen doesn't look very good, because strangely or not, in the recent years they found the way to score away from home in Amsterdam, but at home not and have some losses with 0:1/0:2/0:4. Still it's a team with really offensive style and I expect it's hightime to score against Ajax in a home game. Both teams won their last matches in Eredivisie with 5:0 against De Graafschap and AZ, so they will enter the game confidently for sure.
1:2/1:3 is my prediction here, but still prefer to look for over 2.5 goals+BTTS than Ajax+BTTS. Both picks are more than possible, but prefer not to risk too much. It's always tricky to play for a team which has a match in euro competitions in the next days!
