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

Ajax to Win

Ajax hold a four-point advantage at the summit of the Eredivisie over rivals PSV and the champions can take a step closer to successfully defending their crown with a victory at AZ on Sunday. Erik ten Hag’s side have won an incredible 14 of their last 15 league assignments and they eased to a 2-0 triumph when they last visited Alkmaar for a KNVB Cup clash in March. The hosts have dropped points in four of their last six matches, so side with Ajax here.

Over 2.5 Goals

Ajax’s defensive standards have slipped of late and as a result, their fixtures have routinely been high-scoring affairs. Indeed, 12 of their last 14 fixtures in the Eredivisie have produced over 2.5 goals and a similar outcome is on the cards when de Godenzonen lock horns with an AZ outfit heavily sprinkled with talented forwards. Two of the last three league tussles between the clubs delivered a minimum of three goals and bettors should expect more of the same on Sunday.

Both Teams to Score

Pascal Jansen’s AZ carry plenty of threat in the final third and they have notched at least once in ten of their last 11 Eredivisie fixtures. That fine record suggests that punters can expect Alkmaar to score with confidence on Sunday against an Ajax side that has kept only two clean sheets in their last eight league matches, though the Amsterdam giants have the class to bite back. Ajax have failed to register just three times in 31 Eredivisie duels overall this term, so back both teams to get in on the act on Sunday.

AZ vs Ajax Match Preview and Team News

AZ

Mohammed Tabbouni is expected to return later this month for AZ, though Ron Vlaar is still a doubt with a muscle complaint. Jelle Duin is back in training however and could make the matchday squad on Sunday. AZ have already secured their place in the Conference League Play-Offs, though they can still finish as high as fourth spot before the campaign ends.

Ajax

Perr Schurrs, Ryan Graverberch, Lisandro Martinez and Noussair Mazraoui are all out injured for Ajax this weekend, as are Andre Onana and Zakaria Labyad. Antony and Remko Pasveer are rated as doubtful. Ajax are on course to land the title in the Netherlands and Erik ten Hag will be determined to secure silverware before he joins Manchester United.
