Jong Ajax vs Helmond Prediction & Betting tips
While Helmond Sport is working towards the finishing touch, Jong Ajax tries to hold second.
Jong Ajax :
Of the three promises in the Jupiler League, only Jong FC Utrecht does not make much sense. The young Ajax and PSVs run a more than fine season. Young Ajax is in a very handsome second place and is the most scoring team from the Jupiler League. Jong PSV was eight points behind Marcel Keizer’s team this weekend.
That gap was reduced to five points after the teams hit each other last Monday. Although Jong Ajax started out more than good at the match and scored scores of Vaclav Cerny, it lost the grip on the game. Young PSV took over and paid for peace. At the end of the game, the Ajax finally hit 3-1 at Jong PSV.
As usual, it is awaiting what players Keizer has at their disposal. Certainly given the fact that Ajax’s Thursday evening has to go against Schalke 04 for the quarter-finals of the Europa League, it is still unclear whether certain players can be employed. Abelhak Nouri, Vaclav Cerny and Mateo Cassierra are in any case not called for the Schalke 04 duel and are therefore available for Jong Ajax. Whether Peter Bosz needs these players to hit PSV this weekend is still unclear.
Roy Hendriksen had already taken the spoil in the second period. Helmond Sport finished as a runner-up behind VVV in the struggle for a period championship, but since the Venlonians were already in possession of a period title, the Helmonders were allowed to celebrate the party. What followed was an unprecedented free fall in the ranking.
In the game with Den Bosch, the game was also started with the necessary effort. However, Helmond Sport took the lead after a savage bounce, after which Giovanni Hiwat sent the ball past Bossche’s goalkeeper Kees Heemskerk. Helmond Sport doubled the score and after the break, Roy Hendriksen’s team was on the better hand. There were a number of great opportunities, but Helmond Sport did not get beyond 2-0.
After Helmond Sport had won from NAC Breda, this was the second victory in a row. The last time this was done dates back to January. Hendriksen seems to have the engine running again in time, now the dealership is coming. With another three duels on the program, the training session really started.
