Ajax had a poor week last time around. They suffered a shock loss to Willem II in the league and they dramatically lost to Valencia in the Champions League. Ajax lead the Eredivisie table with 41 points after 16 games. Erik ten Hag's men have scored a whopping 52 goals in the league and possess the second-best defence in the league only behind Alkmaar. They would need a strong performance to bounce back and a trip to Alkmaar might have come too soon for Ajax.
