Willem II is ranked 15th on the table and has lost 4 of the last 5 matches. They are only 2 points behind the 16th place team Fortuna Sittard and their current form does not inspire confidence.
On the other hand, Ajax are at the top of the table, as expected. They are five points ahead of second-placed PSV Eindhoven and look for another championship.
Ajax will be the winning team.
