Ajax Competitions: Eredivisie, UEFA Europa League, Johan Cruyff Shield and KNVB Cup.

AFC Ajax Amsterdam has become the most successful club in Dutch history since it’s inception in 1900. Not only does the club have a record number of titles, they have also become famous for generating some of the world’s greatest talents, with names such as Johan Cruyff, Dennis Bergkamp, Edwin Van der Sar and Frank Rijkaard circling the club.

Given their historical and present dominance in the domestic league, considering outright Ajax odds for them to win the Eredivisie could be a suitable option. Due to their strong performances in the league, we'll likely see Ajax competing in European football, opening up outright and in-play markets for the Europa and Champions League competitions.

Ajax 2023 Betting

In the 2022/23 season, Ajax will be looking to continue its success in domestic football, retaining its Eredivisie title once again. In the previous four seasons, Ajax has placed 1st, flexing their muscles as Dutch football’s elite club. With such a strong set of results, there is no doubt that the odds will have them as favourites for the coming league.

Ajax football club is no stranger to European football, however, their performances in the most prestigious competitions are much less consistent, making it harder to predict how they will perform.

When it comes to individual player bets within the Ajax team, there have been some stand-out stars that could be worth considering. Dušan Tadić has often topped the leaderboard for most assists in the Eredivisie in recent years, so many will tip him to be the creative force in Ajax’s set-up. 

As far as goals are concerned, Ajax’s top goal scorer has varied in previous seasons, with some names transferring to new clubs. There are still some familiar names that have cemented their position in the team, including Steven Berghuis and Steven Bergwijn, who could be considered favourites to net the most goals.

Edson Álvarez acts as the enforcer in Ajax’s midfield, protecting the defence and breaking up play, as well as being suspect to the occasional card.

Betting on Ajax in the Eredivisie

Ajax’s dominance in the Eredivisie has set expectations high for the title achievements they are expected to make in the coming season. At the start of each season, Ajax will certainly be among the favourites to win the league, with very little close competition to join the race.

With each individual match, the Ajax betting odds will be set lower to reflect the strong likelihood of them emerging as winners. For improved Ajax odds in Eredivisie betting, you could consider handicap bets, meaning they would need to win a match by more than the stated amount of goals for the bet to be successful.

Betting on Ajax in the UEFA Europa League

Despite being such a strong side domestically, Ajax is less consistent when they step onto the European stage. In the 2018/19 season, Ajax battled their way through to the Semi-Finals of the UEFA Champions League under the management of Eric ten Hag. Since then, their success in the competition has not come so close, but they have seen changes in both their team and management.

Although Ajax is likely to qualify for the Champions League, they are not considered to be favourites to win the competition. In fact, in the 2022/23 competition, Ajax failed to make it through the group stage, surrendering to the Europa League knockouts.

Ajax is more favourable in the Europa League, making outright football betting odds more suitable. Before placing a bet on a team to win the Europa League, consider the likely competition they will compete against, as this could be the nail in the coffin that forces them out of the Europa League.

Betting on Ajax in the Johan Cruyff Shield

The Johan Cruyff Shield does not always guarantee to feature Ajax as it is a single-match competition that includes the winner of the Eredivisie and the KNVB domestic cup. Although, due to their strong success in the league, Ajax has frequently been involved in the Johan Cruyff Shield in recent years, only managing to win once. 

Given the immediate knockout nature of the Shield, it is not a guaranteed path to victory for Ajax. PSV Eindhoven is the most successful team in the Shield’s history, overcoming Ajax twice in recent years.

Betting on Ajax in the KNVB Cup

Since the Cup was founded in 1899, Ajax has become the most successful team in the history of the competition. However, there is a lot more variation in the winners of the KNVB Cup when compared to the Eredivisie.

Due to the knockout format of the competition, there is room for an upset as Ajax has their sight set on the final. Despite the competition, odds will have Ajax among the favourites to win the competition. Provided they have a strong tournament, bets for individual achievements, such as top goalscorer, could also be a good selection.

Ajax’s Recent History

YEAR Eredivisie Europe Johan Cruyff Shield KNVB Cup
2021/22 1st Champions League L16 Runner-Up Runner-Up
2020/21 1st Europa League QF n/a Winner
2019/20 1st Europa League L32 Winner Semi-Final
2018/19 1st Champions League SF n/a Winner
2017/18 2nd Europa League PO n/a Round 3
2016/17 2nd Europa League RU n/a Round 3

Ajax did finish the 2019/20 season in first position. However, they have not crowned champions as the season was voided due to COVID-19. The seasons where they did not have a finishing position in the Johan Cruyff Shield are those that were cancelled as a result of COVID-19. The Johan Cruyff Shield is decided through a single match, with the winner of the Eredivisie and the KNVB Cup going head-to-head.

Ajax Top Goalscorer Betting

Brian Brobbey and Steven Bergwijn offer Ajax’s most attacking threat going forward. Having established a great amount of experience in the Premier League and European competitions, Steven Bergwijn has developed the confidence and attacking assets that could see him win the top goalscorer accolade. Brian Brobbey offers Ajax something completely different with his physical presence, and he is one of their only striking options. All of Brian’s strengths point towards a successful season, provided he can get the right service.

Ajax Top Assister Betting

In recent seasons, Dušan Tadić has become the main man, assisting his teammates from creative positions. This season might not be any different, with the Ajax captain keeping his place in the squad and surrounded by a team filled with promising players.

Ajax’s attacking threat is no secret, and having a creative player like Dušan Tadić could lead to an overload of goals in the coming season.

Ajax Yellow Cards Betting

Yellow cards often come about as a result of breaking up counterattacks and committing tactical fouls. Unfortunately for Edson Álvarez, his role within the Ajax team involves a lot of this, making him a likely target for receiving yellow cards. When browsing the in-play markets for Ajax, it would not be surprising to see the odds favouring Álvarez to collect a yellow card during matches.
