Ajax had shown nice performance in the home leg but couldn’t beet the visitors’ keeper more than once and had to settle with a draw. Ajax had impressive undefeated streak in matches on the road in 2016 with eight wins and two draws in 10 matches. However, this excellent run ended with 1-2 home loss to Willem in the last match of the team.
Ajax showed much better performance in the first leg and the result of the first leg suggest that Amsterdam side will be forced to go ahead and try to score at least once. We can expect the visitors to prevail and be closer to an away victory.
Prediction for the match: Ajax to win with +0.0 Asian handicap.
