Ajax vs Cambuur by Isaiah
Ajax is coming from a big victory in a derby game of the previous round, as they visited Feyenoord and got a 2:1 three pointer, increasing their streak to fourteen games without defeat. They have won twelve out of these fourteen games, while the team entered the derby game very slow, being troubled by pressure from Feyenoord and were behind in the scoreline in 30th minute.
However, they have started playing much better since then, managing to equalize just before the halftime whistle, while they sealed the victory with a goal from Veltman in 72nd minute. Their coach Frank de Boer was obviously satisfied after the game, saying that the team still didn't win the title, but are in a very good way to do so. They seem to have quickly forgotten exclusion from Salzburg, now trying to continue their domination in Holland. Left back Boilesen (16/1) remains sidelined, same as good striker Fischer (24/3).
Cambuur, on the other side, managed to avoid defeat last weekend in a away game against Groningen which they have ended with a 1:1 result. They have continued their good run, as the team comes from four matches without defeat, while the sharing of the points against Groningen was fair in general.
Still, it has to be said that the hosts had more opportunities to score, while awful pitch conditions prevented both teams from showing better face that night. Still, their coach was satisfied with how the game developed, adding that they could have also gotten the victory. Their aim is avoiding the relegation, from which they are currently four points above. Important midfielder Bakker (23/2) will be back in the team, same as useful winger Feldballe (15/0). On the other side, newly signed striker Ogbeche is still unready.
After finishing their European Cups obligations, we should expect only positive things from Ajax. At home, they shouldn't experience any kind of problems when playing against mid-table teams like Cambuur is. Everything except their easy victory will be a huge surprise.
