Ajax Team News
It was a long ago when was the last time that Ajax didn’t win six consecutive games in Eredivisie. More than 20 years. That happened last time between November 1998 and February 1999, 24 years ago.
After almost a quarter of a century, Ajax is again six games without a win in the Eredivisie. They have had five draws and one defeat in the last five games and they are without a win since 22nd October.
You can see this in a positive way, Ajax is six games without a defeat in all competitions. But with five draws in the league and one win in the cup.
Because of that run, they slipped to 5th position in the table but still the leader Feyenoord is only five points above them.
The good thing for Ajax is that in the next couple of weeks, they have “easy” games in the league against Volendam, Excelsior, Cambuur and RKC. These teams are 17th, 12th, 18th, and 11th in the table and that is a great opportunity to return to winning ways and to come closer to Feyenoord.
Ajax scored at least a goal every but one game this season, but at the same time kept only one clean sheet in the last 11 games. With 46 goals scored they have the best attack in the league.
Volendam Team News
This is their first season in Eredivisie since 2009. They are currently in the relegation zone, in the 17th place, with 12 points after 17 games.
Volendam was in the run of two consecutive wins but they suffered a defeat against Excelsior in the last rounds. They have had five defeats in the last seven games and they have only had two wins since the end of August.
Only four teams are in worst form than Volendam recently, but they still have very realistic chances to stay in this league for the next season because the safe zone is only three points above.
Volendam has the worst defence in the league with 42 goals conceded and they kept only two clean sheets this season.
One of the problems for Volendam is that they are very poor against top teams this season. In nine games against the teams from the top 9 they suffered eight defeats and in these eight games they concede three or more goals on six occasions.
Volendam is also struggling away from home where they have only one win and conceded 21 goals this season.

Ajax vs Volendam Prediction
Ajax must win this game, without any doubt. They are in a terrible form which isn’t characteristic of them and they must stop that. They have four very acceptable fixtures in the next 18 days in Eredivisie and they must take advantage of that and return to winning ways.
Volendam is one of the weakest teams in the league and they are struggling this season and especially when they play against teams from the top half of the table.
Everything except Ajax winning all three points here will be a huge surprise.
