Ajax vs Vitesse Betting Picks and Odds
Ajax needs a reset after a humbling defeat to PSV only two days before their match against Vitesse.
Over 3.5 Goals
Incredibly, the last 12 matches of this team ended with more than two goals, and getting over three happened the last couple of times when they played in Amsterdam. The last time that didn't happen was back in 2017. They meet often enough, not only in the Eredivisie, they met in the Dutch Cup three years running, Ajax won at home by the same score for the past two years, it was 5-0.
Both Teams to Score – No
Vitesse has trouble scoring goals regularly, they only have one in their last three away matches, and find it especially hard to score when the team on the other side of the field is one of the best in Dutch football. Vitesse does have a couple of away wins this season, but those were accomplished against their fellow strugglers Cambuur and Groningen.
Preview and key information about Ajax vs Vitesse
Ajax needs a strong finish to reset
This week is about the last round of football before the World Cup, and Ajax needs to get two wins. It has been a tough few months for the club, they failed to advance into the elimination round in the Champions League, they just lost to PSV at home in the derby match, and are trailing their biggest rivals in the rankings. It's not a big advantage for PSV, as only two points separate these teams, but it's about perception, and how the team is handling the tough part of the season. The competition for the title this season is strong, there are five teams within four points, and only the ones mentally strong will find themselves in the title hunt when springtime arrives. Ajax players need rest, that is more than obvious following their recent home draw against the Go Ahead Eagles, and now a loss to PSV, but there is still work that needs to be done before the World Cup break.
Ajax probable starting 11: Pasveer, Rensch, Bassey, Timber, Sanchez, Berghuis, Alvarez, Kudus, Tadic, Brobbey, Bergwijn.
Vitesse has a different set of problems, their focus is a battle to remain in the Eredivisie. They are hovering above the relegation zone for some time now, and are still, with the game in hand, above teams like Emmen, Cambuur, and Volendam. It's highly doubtful that Vitesse's fans thought before the season started, that their team will fight for survival this season. But, things are tough in Arnhem, the financial situation is not ideal, money is barely spent on new players, and most arrive as loanees.
Vitesse's probable starting 11: Reiziger, Wittek, Cornelisse, Meulensteen, Arcus, Tronstad, Flamingo, Vidovic, Bero, Kozlowski, Bialek.
Ajax: Owen Wijndal is injured.
Vitesse: Bartosz Bialek, Kjell Scherpen, and Mitchell Dijks are injured.
