Best Tip: Ajax to win

As the Ajax players prepare themselves for this fixture, the bookmakers have predicted a win for them. The odds and our pre-match statistics below also point that way, as does the historical head-to-head (H2H) data we take advantage of in our predictive algorithms. The Johan Cruijff Arena has rarely been an easy place to go for NEC in the past, and we expect more of the same come Sunday afternoon. A win / draw / win home win is the way to go.
