Heracles Almelo-Ajax · 6 minutes ago

5 'The proportions of the afternoon emerge early in Erve Asito. Ajax dictates the game and lets Heracles follow the ball. The Almeloërs make a zealous impression on their own artificial grass.

Kickoff! The ball rolls in Erve Asito, which also has a lot of wind. Heracles Almelo-Ajax has started.

Heracles Almelo-Ajax · 18 minutes ago

Ten Hag: 'Ziyech can be used for a return against Getafe'
Erik ten Hag gives more clarity at FOX Sports about the injury of Hakim Ziyech. The playmaker is missing at Ajax for the duel with Heracles Almelo due to calf complaints. "Thursday against Getafe it went well, but not well enough to play the next game." Ten Hag expects Ziyech to be available again on Thursday for the return against Getafe in the knock-out phase of the Europa League.

Heracles Almelo-Ajax · 26 minutes ago

The look in the Eredivisie is going slowly on Ajax. The team from Amsterdam started warming up for the Heracles match on the Almelo artificial grass. How does trainer Erik ten Hag's team react to the thrust that Getafe handed out last Thursday in the knock-out phase of the Europa League.

Heracles-Ajax · 30 minutes ago

Ajax is preparing for meeting Heracles (4.45 p.m.). Now that AZ has won against PEC, the difference is just three points. Do the Amsterdammers make six points again?

AZ-PEC Zwolle · 35 minutes ago

AZ thanks to penalties along PEC Zwolle
AZ is reducing the gap with leader Ajax to three points for now. The Alkmaarders win 2-0 in-house thanks to two utilized penalties by Teun Koopmeiners. The AZ captain will be given the opportunity from the penalty spot before the break, but will meet the outstanding PEC goalkeeper Michael Zetterer. In the second half referee Kamphuis points twice to the spot and Koopmeiners Zetterer sends in the wrong corner. Ajax will play against Heracles Almelo later today and can put AZ back on six points.

Vitesse-PSV · 36 minutes ago

PSV reverses the gap in Arnhem and wins for the third time in a row
PSV has booked the third consecutive victory in a row in Arnhem. The Eindhoven team came 1-0 behind thanks to a goal by Tim Matavz (after a blunder by Daniel Schwaab), but thanks to a good penalty kick by Sam Lammers and a nice shot by Cody Gakpo, PSV eventually won 2-1. Because of the loss, Vitesse hands over the sixth place to FC Utrecht. PSV is fourth, four points behind Feyenoord.

46 'Vitesse-PSV is on its way again.

Heracles Almelo-Ajax · one hour ago

Setup! Ajax starts in Almelo with a few other names: Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Perr Schuurs and Ryan Gravenberch have a basic place. Hakim Ziyech is therefore not fit and missing.

Ajax: Onana; Dest, Schuurs, Blind, Tagliafico; Gravenberch, Martinez; Tadic, Van de Beek, Babel; Huntelaar.

Hakim Ziyech is not part of today's squad due to lack of match fitness. 🥺 #heraja

Heracles Almelo-Ajax · one hour ago

A disappointment for the Amsterdammers:

Hakim Ziyech is not in Almelo. Official reading of the press man: not competitive. #heraja #Ajax
