Ajax vs Groningen build-up & previous line-ups:
So far Ajax’s championship defence is going swimmingly well. Erik ten Hag’s men come into this weekend’s game sitting one point atop of the young Eredivisie table. De Godenzonen are also the only Dutch top division club unbeaten having won five of their opening six games (exception being a 1-1 draw at Twente on matchday two). More impressively, the Amsterdammers have been relentless in front of goal and impressive at the back, their goal difference currently stands at +26 (27 goals scored and one conceded) which is an all-time record at this stage of the season. Ten Hag’s men have netted a combined 19 goals — through 12 different scorers — without reply across their last three Eredivisie home games.
On their last visit to Amsterdam de Trots van het Noorden suffered a 3-1 loss. In fact they’ve lost each of their 13 previous trips since a 2-2 draw in September 2007 when Luis Suárez and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar were on the scoresheet for Ajax back when they called Henk ten Cate coach. Danny Buijs’ current team find themselves in 14th place after picking up five points and head into Saturday’s fixture on a five-game winless streak (three defeats and two draws) including losing their last two Eredivisie matches against Willem II and Vitesse.

Player to watch: Dusan Tadic (Ajax)
For a second consecutive Eredivisie match all eyes will be on Ajax’s inspirational captain Dusan Tadic who is one strike away from reaching a special milestone. As expected the Serbian playmaker was on hand as the Amsterdammers inflicted a 5-0 defeat on Fortuna Sittard earlier this week. Tadic helped himself to two assists as well as netting one himself. His 38th minute strike moved him onto 99 registered in the Dutch top division meaning he’s one goal away from producing a century of Eredivisie goals created and scored which is something that hasn’t been accomplished in a very long time. So far this season he’s on five goals — one behind early pacesetters Bryan Linssen and Ajax teammate Sébastien Haller — plus five assists which is a league high after the opening six matchdays.
