The current leader of the Eredivisie, Erik ten Hag’s Ajax Amsterdam, is one of the most devastating teams in European football today: they have a total of six victories in their first seven official matches and it is one of the few clubs that still does not know what it is to lose at the start of the 2021/22 season.
The Dutch, who they already won the championship last season with some slack, are the great favorites of the championship to maintain hegemony and the great start reaffirms this: five victories, 16 points out of 18 possible, 27 goals for and only one against.
+26 – Ajax have scored 27 goals and conceded only once in the first six games of this Eredivisie season, the best goal difference ever after six matches in the league. Update. #FORAJA https://t.co/G27W042VaJ
