Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Ajax will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat to AZ Alkmaar when they face Go Ahead Eagles in the Eredivise round 8. The reigning champions have a perfect opponent to do so as they defeated Go Ahead Eagles in eight of their last nine meetings. Alfred Schreuder’s men have been impressive in front of home fans this campaign, with the team scoring 15 goals in their last three games at Johan Cruijff Arena, and is no wonder the bookies see them as hot favourites to win the match.
All Ahmetcan Kaplan, Florian Grillitsch and Jorge Sánchez remain in the treatment room. Kowet, on the other hand, will be aiming to build on their back-to-back wins over Emmen and Volendam, but they will have a big fish to fry in round 8 as over the years Ajax have turned their Johan Cruijff Arena into a real fortress. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.

Steven Bergwin is a product of ASC Waterwijk football school, but in 2009 he was spotted by Ajax scouts. In 2011 he moved to PSG and he continued playing for the club’s reserve team at senior level. He made his debut with the senior team on May 20, 2015 in a 2-0 win over Heracles.
Over the years the Dutch footballer born in Amsterdam on October 8, 1997, has established himself as a first-team regular at PSV, earning a call-up for the national team as well. Steven Bergwijn made his Netherlands debut on October 12, 2018 in a 3-0 win over Germany. His main position is left winger, but he is used as both right winger and centre-forward as well.
His preferred foot is right and it has to be noted that his parents are of Suriname descent, he has a dual citizenship. Bergwijn scored 14 goals in 33 appearances for PSV in the 2018/2019 Eredivisie season.
