Ajax have won three of the last five duels with Vitesse, with the other two matches ending in draws. Overall, Ajax have a huge advantage if we look the H2H record between these two teams: 55-12-19.

Vitesse preview: Already packed their bags

After being deducted 18 points by the Dutch FA, it was clear a while back that Vitesse will be getting relegated to the second division after 35 years in the top flight. That being said, Vitesse would've been relegated even without this deduction since they've only won 23 points overall, although in this case they at least wouldn't have finished the season at the very bottom of the standings.

Meanwhile, Mexx Meerdink, Miliano Jonathans, Davy Propper, and Fode Fofana are on the team's injury list right now.

Ajax preview: Positive ending to a turbulent season

While finishing fifth in the league standings is hardly a good result for Ajax, the team has struggled a lot this season and they have to be pleased that they managed to secure a spot in the Europa League in the end. The giants from Amsterdam have also done well to close the season out, with three wins in their last four matches in the Eredivisie.

Meanwhile, Kristian Hlynsson, Olivier Aertssen, Diant Ramaj, and Gaston Avila are out with injuries, while Jorrel Hato is suspended for this match.

Player to watch: Brian Brobbey

Will Brobbey score first?

We saw Brobbey become the first goalscorer eight times in the Eredivisie this season, so he's a good choice to score the first goal against Vitesse as well.
