Ajax could only manage a 0-0 stalemate away to Fortuna Sittard earlier this season, and after a worrying Europa Conference league draw against Aston Villa, they can't afford to slip up this weekend.

Last five H2Hs: Fortuna Sittard have rarely stood a chance

Before this season's earlier clash which finished 0-0, Ajax had been utterly dominating this fixture having only lost once in their entire history. So, this trend looks to be a difficult one for Fortuna to stop.

Ajax preview: A must-win game to keep slim European hopes alive

It could well turn out to be a horrible week for Ajax and European football after drawing at home to Aston Villa; because if they fail to win on Sunday, then they'll potentially fall seven points behind those in the top four.

Predicted lineup: Ramaj (GK) – Kaplan, Hato, Medic – Sosa, Tahirovic, Van den Boomen, Gooijer – Akpom, Taylor – Brobbey

Fortuna Sittard: Away upset may not be unimaginable

Fortuna Sittard had gone nine games and all season without an away league win but now they've got two in their last three matches. So, going to an Ajax side who've played midweek and are certainly not in form could be a great opportunity for them to cause a huge upset.

Predicted lineup: Verrips (GK) – Dijks, Siovas, Guth, Pinto – Duarte, Ozyakup, Oratmangoen – Cordoba, Sierhuis, Lonwijk

Player to watch – Kaj Sierhuis

While Ajax are the favourites heading into this match, it's Fortuna Sittard's star striker, Kaj Sierhuis, who could well be the man to steal the show in Amsterdam on Sunday. Sierhuis scored a hat trick and got two assists last weekend so he's definitely found his goalscoring boots.

Away from home doesn't scare Dutch striker

Three of Sierhuis' eight league strikes have come away from home this season including one against table-toppers PSV Eindhoven. So, going to Ajax who are very out of form and have kept one clean sheet in 2024 and only two since November certainly won't worry Sierhuis, especially when he's coming off the back of four goals in his last two matches.
