AFC Ajax will face Cambuur on Friday - Eredivisie

The Eredivisie returns this week and will see Cambuur host Ajax at the Cambuur-Stadion on Friday night in the 26th round of the Dutch top-flight.

Cambuur have struggled for form in 2022, winning just one league game so far this year. They were beaten 1-0 by Twente last time out and failed to offer much offensively as they had no shot on target all game.

The hosts sit eighth in the league table with 33 points from 25 games. They will be looking to return to winning ways this weekend as they hope to make a late push for Europe.

Ajax have bounced back from their shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Go Ahead Eagles in late February. They beat rivals AZ Alkmaar 2-0 in the semifinals of the KNVB Cup before picking up a 3-2 win over Waalwijk last time out.

The defending champions remain at the top of the Eredivisie table with 60 points from 25 games. They are just two points above PSV Eindhoven in second place and will be looking to widen that gap with a win on Friday.

Cambuur vs Ajax Head-to-Head

Friday's meeting will mark the 15th match between Cambuur and Ajax. The hosts have won just two of their previous matchups, while the visitors have won 11 times. There has been one draw between the two teams.

The last meeting between the two teams saw Ajax run out 9-0 winners.
