Heerenveen vs AFC Ajax Amsterdam Prediction and Betting Tips | February 11th 2024


Heerenveen set out in search of their first win of the year when they play host to AFC Ajax Amsterdam at the Abe Lenstra Stadion in round 21 of the Eredivisie on Sunday.

John van’t Schip’s men will be looking to pick up a morale-boosting result and set the pace for their UEFA Europa Conference League knockout-stage clash against Bodo/Glimt.

Heerenveen were left spitting feathers last Saturday when they were held to a 3-3 draw by Fortuna Sittard after blowing a two-goal first-half lead at the Offermans Joosten Stadion.

Kees Van Wonderen’s side have now failed to win their last eight matches in all competitions, losing five and picking up three draws since a 3-0 victory over Almere City on December 1.

With 22 points from 20 matches, Heerenveen are currently 13th in the Eredivisie table but could move into 10th place with all three points this weekend.

Meanwhile, Ajax failed to move into the Europa League qualification spot last time out as they were held to a 1-1 draw by PSV Eindhoven at the Johan Cruijff Arena.

However, Van’t Schip’s side have now gone 12 consecutive Eredivisie games without defeat, picking up nine wins and three draws since October’s 5-2 loss against PSV.

After a rough start to the campaign, this blistering run of results has seen Ajax rise to fifth place in the league table, level on points with fourth-placed AZ Alkmaar.
