Anderlecht will host Ajax Amsterdam at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium or Lotto Park in the Belgian city of Brussels on Saturday (July 22) in the last friendly game before starting the new season. This is an opportunity for both teams to test their strengths and evaluate their readiness ahead of the official competition.
The home team, Anderlecht had a very bad season last year, especially in the first half of the Jupiler Pro League. They have picked up just 46 points from 34 games and are 11th in the table, their first time in the bottom half of the league in more than 80 years.
However, Anderlecht showed signs of revival in friendlies before this season. They won twice with a minimum difference of two goals, including against Lokomotiva Zagreb from Croatia, one of the teams that often appear in the European Champions League group stage. They also only lost once to Sparta Prague with a landslide score of 6-0.
Under coach Riemer, Anderlecht played in an attacking and aggressive style. They have some quality players like Nmecha, Verschaeren, Sambi Lokonga and Murillo. They also have the great advantage of supporting support and field conditions.
Meanwhile, Ajax also failed last season and were only ranked third in the Dutch top league. They only took 69 points from 34 games, their lowest points since the 2008-09 season. They also changed coaches twice, including the legendary coach John Heitinga.
Ajax is still looking for balance and stability in friendly matches before this season. They have just won one win against Shakhtar Donetsk from Ukraine with a score of 3-0, having previously drawn with Den Bosch, the Dutch second division team. They also lost to Bayern Munich with a score of 2-1.
Coach Steijn is still trying to find the best composition for Ajax. They have several star players such as Tadic, Haller, Antony, Blind and Klaassen. They are also known as a team that plays with tiki-taka style and high pressing.
In terms of head to head, the two teams have met twice in friendly matches since 2018 and the results have been a draw with each team winning once. Their last encounter ended in a 5-2 win for Ajax in 2019.
