Ajax vs PSV Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Ajax vs PSV Predictions
The home side has slightly stumbled in recent weeks. They lost at home to Twente and could only draw 1-1 at Willem II in their most recent game. In both of those games, Ajax had taken the lead. They had no problems in their other two recent fixtures beating Zwolle and Den Haag, scoring eight goals in the process. Home form for Ajax has seen them win six and suffer that loss to Twente. Their seven games have seen them score 25 goals, that’s seven more than any other side in the Eredivisie. With an overall total of 52 league goals this season, they have scored 17 more goals than any of their rivals. They’ll be looking for a fourth straight home league win over PSV. Ryan Gravenberch has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. He is 18 years old, and he is the future of Dutch football. Dušan Tadić is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. Quincy Promes plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
The away side come into this game having won all three of their last league matches. However, all three were against sides in the bottom half of the table. This season, they have only lost one league game, a 2-1 away loss to Vitesse in late October. They’ve won six and drawn two and drawn four points clear of third placed Feyenoord since then. Away from home, they have only won three of their seven league games with three draws. Only in a 3-0 away win at Zwolle have they managed to keep a clean sheet. This is a vital game that could change the whole nature of the season. Ajax has the home advantage, and with PSV not so hot on their travels (they have a 100% home record). Ibrahim Sangare found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it’s hard to take the ball away from this guy. Mohammed Ihattaren plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Chukwunonso Madueke creates a lot of problems for his opponents on the right flank.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
