MATCH PREVIEW

Still seeking their first win of the season at the Abe Lenstra Stadion (D2, L2), Heerenveen welcome an Ajax side that have lost only one of their four away games this term (W3, L1).
Interestingly, both of Heerenveen’s home draws have ended 1-1, whilst both defeats here were by a shocking 5-3 scoreline. Unsurprisingly then, Heerenveen have conceded more goals at home (12) than any other Eredivisie side so far.
This will be the first meeting between managers Jan Olde Riekerink (Heerenveen) and Erik ten Hag (Ajax), although the Ajax boss remains unbeaten in eight prior meetings against this game’s hosts (W6, D2). Each of his last four victories against the ‘Super Frisians’ saw both teams score.
Despite boasting an impressive record of W6, D1, L1 so far, Ajax must gain three points here or run the risk of first-placed PSV increasing their five-point cushion at the top of the league. In fact their only away defeat this season, was to title-rivals PSV.
On paper, the visitors shouldn’t have any problems dispatching Heerenveen at the Abe Lenstra – Ajax are unbeaten here in a decade, last losing in October 2008. They have a record of W7, D2 since then, with each of their last three victories coming to nil.
Players to watch: Four of Morten Thorsby’s five Heerenveen goals this season have been scored with his head – more than any other Eredivisie player.
Age is just a number to 35-year-old Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Ajax) – the ‘Hunter’ has scored a brace in three of his last six Eredivisie games.
Stat attack: Incredibly, five of Heerenveen’s eight Eredivisie matches this term produced over 4.5 goals.
Ajax have been drawing at half-time in two of their three away wins this season.
Ajax have scored four or more goals in each of the last three editions of this fixture (two home games, one away).
