Ajax warmed up for their opening match of the 2013-14 Dutch Eredivisie season with a hard fought 3-2 extra time victory over KNVB Cup holders AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch Super Cup on Saturday. The Amsterdam giants were staring at defeat at 0-2 down after 67 minutes, but an Alkmaar own goal and a Kolbeinn Sigþórsson equaliser took the game into extra time where captain Siem de Jong scored the winning goal to complete a memorable comeback. Coach Franck De Boer will most likely field a stronger side for Ajax's opening league game with Barcelona loanee Bojan Krkic in line for his Eredivisie debut.
2012-13 was a difficult first season in charge for Roda JC coach Ruud Brood who managed to keep the club in Netherland's top-flight depite constantly flirting with relegation. The Pride of the South lack the financial backing of Ajax and had to go through the lottery of relagation play-offs to ensure their survival and will start their 2013-14 campaign without their main goal-getter. Last season's club top-scorer Senharib Malki is now plying his trade in the Turkish Super Lig for Kasimpasa leaving forwards Franck Demouge, Krisztian Nemeth, and new signing Marc Hocher to carry the mantle.

Ajax go into this game as heavy favourites in front of their home supporters at Amsterdam Arena and will be looking to make a winning start to the domestic campaign, but as so often happens in football these early season games can be unpredictable and the Amsterdammers will need to do a professional job to avoid an upset.
