AZ Alkmaar II come into tonight’s game against against Ajax II on the back of three straight league defeats. In fact, the young Alkmaar side have only won two of their last 10 league outings, while conceding 22 times in the process.
After two weeks of rest they now face four games in 12 days starting tonight with the difficult task of welcoming 2nd placed Ajax II. Not a very enviable task.
Things are looking better for Ajax II, led by former star full back Michael Reiziger, who sit 2nd in the table after picking up 26 points in 12 rounds. Despite losing 0-5 in their last league outing against De Graafschap, things are actually looking really promising.
That’s because the squad is likely to be bolstered by several first team players tonight, with Carel Elting, Mateo Cassierra and Dennis Johnsen all set to feature. The team will also have Mitchell Dijks available, as he is looking to get back into first team consideration. There might even be a few others, so Reiziger will definitely be able to field a strong 11 here. We believe that will be enough to grab all three points.
