FC Twente were out to make a statement in their recent match against RKC Waalwijk on the road, as they got to record their first big of the season as they trounced Joseph Oosting's men 5:0, with all goals coming in from five different players.
Prior to that, they played host to NEC Nijmegen at De Grolsch Veste, and it was none other than another dominant display from them as they cruised to a commanding 4:0 victory thanks to goals from Vaclav Cerny, Virgil Misidjan, and Ricky van Wolfswinkel.
They have only suffered one defeat in their last ten matches in the Eredivisie against FC Utrecht (1:0), while recording three draws and six wins, and it's without a shadow of doubt that those obtained have typified nothing but consistent form from Ron Jans' men.
In the standings, they presently occupy 5th place with 61 points and have confirmed their spot in the Europa League playoffs. While any result recorded here won't have any effect on their position, they'll still fancy their chances of causing an upset in this clash.
Probable Starting XI
Unnerstall; Brenet, Pleguezuelo, Propper, Smal; Vlap, Sadilek, Zerrouki; Cerny; Van Wolfswinkel, Misidjan
The Eredivisie giants lived up to expectations in their match against FC Utrecht at home, as they gave their fans something worth cheering about at the game's conclusion as they eked out a 3:1 victory.
Prior to that, they made the trip to Euroborg to face off with FC Groningen, and goals from Dusan Tadic, Brian Brobbey, and Jurrien Timber ensured that they bagged a crucial three points in a 3:2 triumph.
This season has been an underwhelming one for Johnny Heitinga's men as they have failed to meet expectations both in European and domestic football, which sees them being forced to conclude the season without any major trophy in their cabinet for the first time. All they can do at the moment is ensure that they finish the season on a positive note by leaving nothing to regret.
In the standings, they presently occupy 3rd place with 69 points and are three points behind a 2nd place finish, making collecting all three points here crucial while they hang on to the slightest hope that PSV Eindhoven suffers defeat in their match against AZ Alkmaar.

Expert Betting Tips
FC Twente are by no means to be written off here despite being labeled underdogs by bookmakers, as their three-match winning streak in the Eredivisie could play a pivotal role in them causing an upset in their final match at home. Not only have they won their last three matches, but they have kept three clean sheets while scoring a whopping 12 goals, and that's confirmation enough that they'll prove to be a handful.
Ajax Amsterdam know that securing a win in this encounter won't come easy given their opponents resurgence of late, but given what's at stake for them if they were to secure all three points, there's no doubting that they'll be at their best to avoid recording an unfavorable outcome.
Ajax Amsterdam have not lost any of their last five matches against FC Twente, where two draws and three wins have been evident, and given the fact that their opponent has failed to win any of their last four home games against them, we're inclined to think they'll have the necessary firepower to see off this match with a win, albeit by a narrow margin.
