Ajax to Win
Following their Europa League heartbreak, Ajax will be looking for revenge. Erik ten Hag’s men have been the dominant force in the Eredivisie but anything can happen in one-off affairs. They will face a Vitesse side, which has been comparable at the back and have the second-best defence in Dutch top-flight football. It is the Amsterdammers offence, which sets them apart. They have 86 goals in the Eredivisie to Vitesse’s 46, and should be able to brush aside their rivals.
Total Goals Over 2.5
The last seven successive H2H meetings of Ajax and Vitesse has seen goals flow from both sides and the Over 2.5 being realized. It looks unlikely that the trend will stop now as domestic silverware is on the line. The bulk of these goals are expected from Ajax, who have outscored Vitesse by 40 goals in the Eredivisie.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Vitesse are unbeaten in their last seven games, with five wins and two draws. The stalemates were 0-0 affairs, with the Airborne Football Club troubling the scorers on 13 occasions. Meanwhile, Ajax come into the fixture after being dumped out of the Europa League. However, the 20-time winners of the KNVB Becker tested the resolve of AS Roma and got on the scoresheet in both legs.
Ajax vs Vitesse Fixture Preview
Erik ten Hag has managed to lift the KNVB Becker trophy both as a player and manager. To his credit, he added these to his tally with different outfits. It was with Ajax that he lifted the trophy as a manager during the Sons of the Gods 2018/19 campaign. They are favourites in this tie with an attacking line-up led by the experienced Dusan Tadic. Vitesse will also do well by being war of Brazilian prodigy, Antony, who has 19 goal contributions to his name.
The Airborne Football Club have a tough task on their hands in their bid to secure their second KNVB Becker trophy. Although they have given a good account of themselves in Eredivisie, Ajax’s record speak for themselves. Their ability to keep stave off opposition attacks will be tested against Ten Hag’s charges. However, Vitesse are no slouches with eleven players contributing goals for them this season. Thomas Letsch will hope Chelsea loanee Armando Broja continues his goalscoring form and continues his excellent partnership with Morocco midfielder Oussama Tannane.
