Holland Super Cup Final: Can PEC Zwolle Shock Ajax Yet Again?Published August 3, 2014 by Sol FH
The Johan Cruyff Shield final fixture tonight between PEC Zwolle and Ajax is live tonight at 5 pm (UK time).
Just before the 2014/15 regular season kicks off, the Holland Cup must be played. Renamed the Johan Cruyff Shield in 1996, this is the first trophy of the year and you'd better believe both teams want to bring home the hardware.
Before PEC Zwolle is counted out it'd be wise to remember that this is actually a rematch of the 2014 Dutch Cup played on 4/20 earlier this year in which Ajax lost 5-1 in a shocker. That game was a thriller on and off the pitch as the fans set off fireworks, and damaged the field to the point that both players and other fans pleaded with the hooligans to stop. The game was played in full following the half an hour delay and David definitely vested Goliath, giving PEC their fist trophy.
Tonight is most-likely going to be a different story as Ajax is playing at home and they do not want to get embarrassed again. The teams are both healthy going into the match tonight but Ajax definitely has the advantage.
