Graafschap vs Ajax (By: Mulder)
Last round in the Eredivisie.
De Graafschap lost with 6-1 in Arnhem and they cannot avoid the relegation/playoffs any longer.
So manager De Jong declared already that he will rest players for this game.
Manager De Jong: '' We must keep it real and not get any players injured unnecessarily.''
Striker Benschop will most likely be rested. Also, Javier Vet and Furdjel Narsingh are dealing with a little bit of pain and should be rested as well. The same can be said about Charlison as De Jong subbed him in Arnhem after 65 minutes of play.
Youssef El Jebli is doing the Ramadan so it has to been seen if he will start ( most likely not ).
Ajax on the other side are champions of the Netherlands. Of course, it is not official yet, but there is no way that PSV will win like 9-0. And then still, Ajax has to lose with 5 goals difference as well here in Doetinchem. Not gonna happen so the Ajax players were celebrating a little already after the match against Utrecht although the official celebration will be this Thursday.
A few other things that are important here.
1) Ajax has still nightmares when they think about De Graafschap. Indeed, all they had to do in 2016 ( was the very last game of the season as well ) was to WIN, but Ajax choked and drew 1-1 which left a big scar in their rich history. In the current squad, Veltman and Schone are still present of that team so they would like to settle the score for sure.
2) Psv's Luuk De Jong is topscorer with 28 goals while Dusan Tadic has just two goals less. So expect the team to be hungry in order to give Tadic some chances to score.
3) This will be the last match for a lot of guys in this golden generation, so not doubt that they would like to finish on a high note.
Neres will probably miss this game as well but expect Ten Hag to lineup a strong team.
Total hcp playable as well, also Tadic to score, but will take my chances for this ''safe'' and smaller HCP for the first 45 minutes.
