In their previous match, Ajax met Emmen on Saturday and it finished in an entertaining 3:3 draw away from home. The club is on a dry run, without tasting success in three games, suffering 1 loss and registering 2 draws in the process. As it turns out, performing at home was of no help throughout the last ten Ajax meetings. It was the visitors who triumphed in the last six clashes. The team was held to a draw in only two of their previous 10 encounters. Every single of Ajax’s five previous battles on the pitch finished with more than 2.5 goals and all bar one saw both sides finding the net. The players of Ajax left everything on the field but still did not manage to prevent their opponents from scoring and they failed to net goals on their own in only one of those. The team’s last five outings finished with 4 goals on average.
