Ajax Amsterdam vs Groningen (Eredivisie, 16.01.2015)

Eredivisie starts the New Year with Ajax vs Groningen, a match where the hosts not only seek revenge, but also to keep up the pace with PSV. Last time the two teams met back in August, Groningen surprisingly won with 2-0, which is one of the reasons Ajax is now 4 points behind PSV in the Eredivisie table, with only two losses in the first half of the season.

The visitors are currently on the 8th place, which allows them to compete for Europa League places. Leeuw is their main goalscorer with 9 successes and he is fit to start which would put Groningen in prime position to score at least a goal at Amsterdam Arena. They will be without three key players sidelined with injuries, which will put a strain on a team that is not doing well in away games either, having 5 losses, 2 draws and two wins, all while managing to concede 19 goals and to score only eight. The visitors have a good track with the bigger teams, having recorded a draw against PSV and a win against Twente.
Ajax have Veltman who will miss the match because of a hamstring injury he picked up during training while Fisher and Boilsen have been declared unfit. Besides that they are looking very sharp in Eredivisie having scored 43 goals in the first half and conceded only 17. Davy Klaassen is confident fans will see an improved team on Friday, which will help their head to head record against Groningen: Ajax won 16 out of their last 18 matches against Groningen. The hosts are unbeaten on Amsterdam Arena since July, and if Milik will have anything to say about it, goals will be scored even in the first half.

William Hill favor Ajax to win and gives them 1.25 odds, a draw has 5.00 odds and Groningen 11.00 to produce another upset. Ajax for both halves has 1.75 odds, Groningen 17.00, both teams to score 1.91, over 2.5 goals 1.44 and Ajax to lead after 30 minutes 2.15 odds. Milik to score has 1.85 odds, Sigthorson and Schone both have 1.85 while Leeuw has 3.75 in the same betting market. We are betting 5 units on the coupled market of Milik and Schone to score anytime with 3.30 odds from William Hill.
