Match Preview

  • A 4-1 win at the weekend saw Twente consolidate their place in the European play-off spots, but also continued a trend that’s seen the away side on the day win their last six matches. That’s got to worry this home side as they now face title-chasing Ajax, although that strange away winning run also includes Twente’s 2-1 win at Ajax last month!
  • Winless in four straight Eredivisie home games (D1, L3), and with all three losses witnessing a two-goal margin, it’s been a tough few weeks in Enschede for the hosts. To their credit though they remain unbeaten here this league campaign when scoring first (W3, D1), something they’ve done in five of the last six top-flight home H2Hs too (W1, D4, L1).
  • After 15 rounds, Ajax stood at the top of the table thanks to a 2-2 draw versus PSV that saw them launch a comeback after going 2-0 down early on. That result means Ajax have won only two of their last five Eredivisie games though (W2, D2, L1), showing the Dutch giants have lost a bit of momentum, although their league-high average of 3.6 goals scored per game should be feared, and is the largest they’ve recorded at this stage of a top-flight season since 1966/67.
  • They remain formidable on the road this league campaign (W5, D1, L1), although their average of 1.5 goals conceded across their last two road trips (W1, D1), is a huge increase on the 0.2 they averaged in the five prior.
  • Players to watch: Twente’s Queensy Menig scored at the weekend and had the royal touch in the last H2H, netting a brace to topple Ajax. Dušan Tadić netted Ajax’s first goal in that H2H, and the opener in his side’s last Eredivisie away win.
  • Hot stat: Ajax have led at HT in four of their last five Eredivisie road trips, three times by a 3+ goal margin.
