AFC Ajax Amsterdam vs Heerenveen Prediction

Ajax have made a nightmarish start to the season and currently find themselves in a relegation battle rather than competing for the title. Their poor start has already seen three different managers take charge in the dugout and they are outside the relegation zone only on goal difference albeit with a game in hand.

Heerenveen are just two points ahead and a defeat here would leave them looking eerily over their shoulders.

Ajax have the quality to turn things around and snapping their 10-game winless run could prove to be the tonic to get their season back on track.
