The new season will be opened in the Netherlands, as was normal to happen, the Dutch Super Cup. The game will take place on Saturday at 21:00 and will put them face to face AZ Alkmaar and Ajax Amsterdam, winner cup or championship.
Dutch Cup winner has played four friendly games this summer, the balance is positive, but we have also seen the other side of things, namely that opponents were nowhere near the same level. Alkmaar lost the opening match, 0-3 with G. A. Eagles, after which followed three consecutive wins, scoring Apeldoorn vs 7-1, 3-0 and 3-0 vs Getafe vs Maastricht.
On the other side, Ajax was a bit more active in terms of friendlies. Eredivisie champion has played six friendlies, some of them on the same days. It should be noted that Eriksen and colleagues obtained only victories this summer, but not as they met bands. Interestingly, Ajax kept its fearsome offensive force, scoring a total of 19 times, which means an average of over three per game achievements, and received only 4 goals. The strongest opponents Ajax were met by Werder Bremen (3-2) and Osasuna (1-0). There is talk lately that Eriksen team brain basically is close to leaving the band in Amsterdam, Liverpool are very interested in the Dane services.
From 2012 AZ Alkmaar and Ajax have battled five times. Surprisingly or not, Ajax won one match, Alkmaar other two, and twice was ended in a draw. The overall score is 11-8 for Alkmaar.
