Ajax vs Heerenveen Prediction

Ajax are in great form at the moment, going unbeaten in their last eight league games. They have the best offensive and defensive record in the league and also hold the best home record to boot.

Heerenveen are also playing well at the moment and have lost just one of their last eight league games. They have, however, struggled on the road of late and could lose here.
