Heerenveen vs Ajax build-up & previous line-ups:
Returning from a week-long break, Heerenveen find themselves sitting comfortably in upper mid-table (7th place) after winning half of their opening eight league fixtures, with the most recent coming last time out at PEC Zwolle (0-1) which ended a two-game losing streak. Johnny Jansen’s men have been nothing short of inconsistent at home this season. They began with a 3-2 win over RKC Waalwijk before losing 1-3 to AZ that was soon amended when they ran out 1-0 winners against Fortuna Sittard but their most recent league game at the Abe Lenstra Stadion saw FC Twente leave with a slender 2-3 victory. The Super Frisians when facing this weekend’s opponents have picked up just six Eredivisie home wins: the last to date coming in October 2008 when they ran out 5-2 winners.
The final Eredivisie unbeaten record fell just before the recent international break when Ajax suffered a shock 0-1 defeat to FC Utrecht at home. It subsequently ended the club’s five-game winning streak and 15-match unbeaten run at home stretching back into last season. Erik ten Hag’s men nevertheless lead the young championship table heading into this latest round of fixtures but that advantage over nearest challengers PSV Eindhoven is a slender one point. Aside from returning to successful ways, the Amsterdammers are seeking a third away win on the bounce and in 29 previous visits to Heerenveen they’ve returned with 17 wins, the most recent being a 1-2 success in April 2021.

Players to watch: Dusan Tadic (Ajax)
He’s still pushing for that elusive 100th strike in Dutch football’s top division. Dusan Tadic comes into this weekend’s game on a two-game scoring drought which still leaves him on 99 Eredivisie strikes. If the 32-year-old Serbian forward manages to breach Heerenveen’s defence then he will have scored and created a century of Eredivisie goals; a feat that was probably last achieved several decades ago, and he’ll fancy his chances. Tadic across 17 previous meetings against the Friesland-based club has netted 15 goals which makes them his all-time favourite opponent to score against. De Godenzonen‘s skipper is also so far enjoying a productive campaign. He’s ranked number 1 in the Eredivisie when it comes to chances created (30), possessions won in attacking third (12) plus assists during open play (4).
