On 20th of October, in the Netherlands, Ajax is going to meet the football team Heracles. The last match of Ajax against Utrecht resultated in a draw, so they cannot afford to lose more points.
In the head-to-head confrontations between Ajax and Heracles, Ajax is the incontestable leader. On 18.04.2010, Ajax achieved an absolute 4-0 victory against Heracles. Another amazing victory was took place on 30.10.2010, when the match between the two teams ended with 4-1 for Ajax. On 3.04.2011, the difference of scored goals between the two remained the same as on 30.10.2011, just that this time Heracles didn’t manage to score even once. On 10.09.2011, the match was much more tight, but again, it ended with Ajax’s victory (3-2). The last match between the two, which took place on 1.04.2012, was a sheer disaster for Heracles, who didn’t score any goal against their opponents who scored 6 times.
It is obvious that with El Hamdaoui missing, Ajax’s play won’t be the same, so their good defense is in danger. On the other hand, Heracles plays fast and is dangerous on counters. Even if Ajax might encounter some trouble due to the absence of the main defensive couple, I still think they are the undeniable favourites of this match.
So I’m going to bet 3 units on Ajax’s victory at 1.60. The odds I used are from bwin.
