Roda take on the visitors Ajax at “Parkstad Limburg Stadion” in the round 22 of the Dutch Eredivisie. The match will be played in Kerkrade on Wednesday, February 7th.
At this point Roda sit on the 17th position in the Dutch elite division table. Despite the low current position, “De Koempels” have failed only three out of eight encounters played within the Eredivisie since December, whereby two of those defeats were with a minimal margin and the third one was earned on the road. Moreover, the team has lost not a single match with more than two-goal margin out of 10 clashes conducted in front of its supporters. Besides, none of the least season’s top six clubs has managed to thrash Roda at the home ground in the season 2016/2017.

Meanwhile, in this season Ajax cannot show the same effectiveness in attack as they did in the previous one: last season the club deserved 10 wins with three-goal margin in 34 encounters played while in this season it has managed to get only seven such triumphs after 21 gameweeks behind. The club doesn’t impress with its away results against the rivals from the bottom part of the standings: one loss, two draws and three victories. Besides, it should be mentioned that Ajax have slowed down a bit, having gained just 0:0 draw against Utrecht in the recent fight conducted on the road and have not celebrated lopsided away triumphs since the 10th of December.
Ajax are the obvious favourites of the forthcoming battle as their unbeaten run in Kerkrade counts for four head-to-heads: 2:0, 2:2, 2:1, 2:1. However, basing on the mentioned above statistics as well as Roda’s current shape and their ability to shut out plus the visitors’ difficulties, I believe that the hosts will avoid a smashing loss.
Prediction for the match: Roda to win with +2.5 Asian handicap.
