After their hard-fought 2-1 victory against Bodo/Glimt in the second leg of the Europa League playoffs, Ajax Amsterdam witnessed fatigue take a toll on them in their most recent league match against AZ Alkmaar as a Ruben van Bommel brace condemned them to a convincing 2-0 defeat on foreign territory while thwarting their chances to enter the top four in the standings. 

The Amsterdammers have not been at their best display this past few weeks as they've only secured one victory in their last six matches across all competitions (D3 L2) a run that has typified inconsistency. Besides being on a two match winless run at the Johan Cruijff ArenA recording two stalemates against run-away leaders PSV Eindhoven (1-1) and NEC Nijmegen (2-2), John van 't Schip's men have been a difficult side to beat as they maintain an eight match unbeaten run (W5 D3) since a 2-1 defeat to AZ Alkmaar on October 8th, 2023. However the only blemish during this commendable run is their defense streak which has been breached six times a department they have struggled in dearly conceding 43 goals, ranking them as the fifth worst defense side in the Eredivisie. 

With 36 points accumulated in 23 matches played, Ajax Amsterdam sit in fifth place in the Eredivisie standings, two points ahead of the sixth-placed Go Ahead Eagles and six points behind AZ Alkmaar, who currently occupy the Europa League qualifier spot in fourth place.

Formation: 3-4-2-1

From languishing at the bottom of the table in the relegation zone during the early stages of the first half of the season, FC Utrecht have improved tremendously to steer away from the danger zone and can now dream of playing European football next season. 

The Tukkers most recent league match saw them clinch a narrow 1-0 victory over Heracles Almelo at home, extending their winning streak to four matches for the first time this season. This was their second consecutive 1-0 triumph and their third consecutive clean sheet in the Eredivisie. Away from home, they are currently on a six-match unbeaten run (W3 D3) and will undoubtedly fancy their chances of extending that run by slaying the Dutch giants for the second time this season, having done so in the reverse fixture, winning 4-3 at home. 

With 32 points accumulated in 23 matches played, FC Utrecht sits in eighth place in the Eredivisie standings, three points ahead of ninth-placed Sparta Rotterdam and four points behind their opponents in this impending encounter. 

Formation: 4-2-3-1

  • Ajax Amsterdam have won one of their last six matches across all competitions.
  • FC Utrecht are currently on a fifteen-match unbeaten run in the Eredivisie.
  • Ajax Amsterdam averages 2.45 goals per game when playing at home, and FC Utrecht averages 0.82 goals per game when playing away.

In the last 66 meetings, Ajax Amsterdam have won 35 times, FC Utrecht have won 19 times, and there have been 12 draws, with the goal difference being 128-76 in favor of Ajax Amsterdam.

Ajax Amsterdam are once again struggling with inconsistency in the league as they are winless in their last four matches (L2 D2). They enter this clash seeking to get back to winning ways, and with home advantage at their disposal, there's a slight possibility that they may be able to achieve that feat after going unbeaten in their last eight matches.

Considering that this could turn out to be a tight contest between two sides pushing for European football next season, picking up a winner in this one could go sideways. Therefore, we anticipate supporting both teams to get on the scoreboard, combined with a total of over 2.5 goals, as this has been the case in their past two meetings.

  • Both Teams To Score + Goals - Over 2.5 for 1.80
  • Total (1 Half) - Over 1.5 for 2.28
  • Handicap - FC Utrecht (0:1) for 1.98
