Not much time today, so briefly ....


The Ajax squad also looks a lot stronger today, with the return of El Hamdaoui and van der Wiel and it is time for the Amsterdam giants to push on domestically. They have been struggling for goals recently and conceding far too freely, with just one clean sheet in eight Eredivisie starts, but a 3-0 cup win in midweek, albeit against weak opponents, has given them something to build on and even against a strong home side today, I think we will see them going all out for the win to close the gap on the top two.

Three points would see them trail PSV by the same margin and with the team from Eindhoven coming to the Amsterday Arena next weekend, that is a mighty incentive. Ajax got a mighty wake up call with the home loss to Den Haag last week and with most of the team away on international call up after today, the importance of today's game has become crystal clear.Luis Suarez finally ended his goal drought in midweek and I feel we might see him follow up in a stadium where the visitors tend to do well and there are often goals.

Ajax have lost just one of six h2h meetings, three of those have produced five or more goals (six twice), including a 4-2 win here last season, when the Uruguay international scored a brace and El Hamdaoui scored for the hosts. I can see something similar today and will split my double unit stakes between Ajax and for it to rain goals.

Ajax -0.5 2.19

0.7 units "over" 4.5 goals 4.80 + ... 5.0 in places
0.3 units "over" 5.5 goals 9.0

Good Luck.
