Ajax vs Utrecht – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Ajax are targeting their sixth straight victory in the Eredivisie when they welcome Utrecht to Amsterdam. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing.

Ajax -1 Goal

Ajax have jumped to another level this season under Erik ten Haag and the Dutch champions are one of Europe’s most consistent winning machines. Alongside securing victories in eight of their last nine assignments in all competitions, the Amsterdam giants covered the -1 handicap on each successful occasion and the formidable title favourites are priced generously in the same market again on Sunday.

Under 4.5 Goals

While Ajax are expected to enjoy another comfortable afternoon in the Eredivisie, they might not inflict an embarrassingly defeat on Utrecht. The visitors hold the second-best defensive record in the league this term (seven goals conceded in nine games) and Ajax might be a little jaded following their midweek continental exploits against Besiktas. With that considered a more modest victory might be in the works, so back under 4.5 goals to hit the net.

Ajax to keep a clean sheet

While Ajax’s scintillating attacking football understandably generates the most headlines, Erik ten Haag’s team have also been incredibly solid at the back. Ajax have kept five clean sheets in the spin and they have conceded just one goal in their last seven fixtures overall. The champions are rock-solid in defence and they are available at a price worth backing to shutout Utrecht this weekend.

Ajax vs Utrecht: Match Preview

Ajax team news

Both Maarten Stekelenburg and Sean Klaiber are rated as doubtful for Sunday, though neither player is considered a key performer for Ajax. De Godenzonen produced the goods in Europe again in midweek against Besiktas and domestically they have been remarkably reliable again this season, winning six of their first seven contests in the Eredivisie.

Utrecht team news

Defenders, Christopher Mamengi and Tommy St. Jago could miss out again for Utrecht this weekend, while goal-scoring midfielder Simon Gustafson is a long-term absentee and a big miss. Utrecht thumped bottom club Zwolle 5-1 last weekend and climbed up to 5th spot in the process. Only Feyenoord and Sunday’s opponents Ajax have scored more goals in the Dutch top flight than the Domstedelingen this term.
