Double Chance – Draw or Vitesse 

Historically speaking, Ajax has been the better side – in the last 10 games between these two clubs, we saw 7 victories for Ajax, 1 draw, and 2 victories for Vitesse. In the Eredivisie, Ajax is currently ranked 1st while Vitesse is 6th. With all the issues going around in the Ajax squad we believe this is your best chance for a high-odd risk this week as Vitesse will go for the victory here.  

Over 3.5 goals  

6 of the last 10 games resulted in 4 or more goals being scored. Ajax has the best attack this season while Vitesse has a somewhat poor defense. Chances for goals will be plenty.  

Both teams to score – Yes 

In 7 of the last 10 games, both teams managed to score at least 1 goal. Ajax will be forced to rotate a lot of players which will only increase Vitesse’s chance for goal further. We think that the upcoming match is most likely going tot end with goals from both sides.

Important team news before the start of this game 

Read below for the most important individual information about the two teams before the start of this game: 


Ajax has many players being injured or called for the national teams and will all miss this game – Andre Onana, Maarten Stekelenburg, Edson Alvarez, Ryan Gravenberch, Mohammed Kuddus, Sebastian Haller, and Brian Brobbey. The last games for the team include an important 2:1 victory over local rivals PSV and a few big victories over Fortuna Sittard, Utrecht, and Excelsior Maassluis. 


The only squad issue for coach Thomas Letsch is center-back Riechedly Bazoer but we believe Jacob Rasmussen has what it takes to fill in those shoes. Vitesse’s most recent games include two big losses against Twente and Groningen, a 2:0 victory over DVS’33 in the Round of 16 of the KNVB Cup, and a prestigious narrow win over Feyenoord on the 15th of January in a match that Vitesse dominated.
