Ajax are set to play host to Willem II on Thursday at the Johan Cruyff Arena in their next Eredivisie fixture. Ajax come into this game on the back of a 2-1 win over Sjors Ultee’s Fortuna Sittard on Sunday at the Fortuna Sittard Stadion. An own goal from German striker Sebastian Polter and a second-half goal from new signing, striker Sebastien Haller ensured victory for Erik ten Hag’s Ajax.
Belgian right-back Mickael Tirpan scored the consolation goal for Fortuna Sittard, who had Polter sent off in the second-half. Willem II, on the other hand, lost 3-1 to John Stegeman’s PEC Zwolle on Saturday at the Koning Willem II Stadion. A hat-trick from Iran international Reza Ghoochannejhad sealed the deal for PEC Zwolle.
Ghanaian forward Kwasi Okyere Wriedt scored the consolation goal for Willem II, but was sent off in the first half.
