Ajax will begin a pivotal week with a home game against Go Ahead Eagles in the Eredivisie on Saturday after experiencing the extremely rare occurrence of back-to-back losses.
The Dutch giants fell to AZ away in Alkmaar to give up the league’s top status to rivals PSV Eindhoven before the international break after their Champions League setback at Anfield.
Ajax will be hoping their next four domestic matches, all against teams predicted to finish in the bottom half, can be navigated safely and comfortably because they have two significant head-to-heads versus Napoli coming up.
The Eagles, on the other hand, have won their last two games following a five-game losing streak. Oliver Valaker Edvardsen’s two goals helped them defeat FC Emmen 2-0 in their last game. With the result, they are currently 13th in the league.

Because of their Champions League encounter in midweek, Ajax could rest some their key players.
Davy Klaassen is frequently given a chance from the start in the league, and Steven Berghuis is generally the player to make way out of the regular starters.
Owen Wijndal, a new signing might stake a claim for a spot in the lineup to replace one of the back four that have been almost unchanged throughout the season.
Enric Llansana, who went down early in Go Ahead Eagles’ victory over Volendam three weeks ago, is expected to be replaced in the lineup.
Icelandic midfielder Willum Thor Willumsson took his position on the pitch against Emmen, but with some tactical changes, Sylla Sow, might get his first start since joining the team during the end of the summer season.

Ajax 4 –0 Go Ahead Eagles
The international break could not have come at a better moment for Ajax, who are reeling from consecutive defeats in two different competitions. The title contenders will have a chance to start again and concentrate on returning to their winning ways.
The squad has won four of the last six games against the Go Ahead Eagles, who are also playing a lot better with back-to-back victories.
The hosts may have to put in some extra effort to win this one but anything other than a big win would be surprise
