Holders Ajax aim to successfully defend their crown against PSV in the KNVB Beker final on Sunday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

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

Ajax to Win

Erik ten Hag will be determined to end his swansong season at Ajax by collecting as much silverware as possible and the Eredivisie title favourites can add to their trophy haul in the KNVB Beker Final on Sunday. De Godenzonen beat the Boeren in the league as recently as January 23rd and fatigue could be a major issue at the Stadion Feijenoord following PSV’s taxing Europa Conference League defeat to Leicester on Thursday evening. Those factors suggest that Ajax can oust their rivals in Sunday’s showpiece showdown.

Both Teams to Score

With just two clean sheets in their last nine assignments in all competitions, Ajax haven’t been their usual robust selves for an extended period and they could struggle to shut out a goal-hungry PSV outfit on Sunday. Four of the last six tussles between the traditional antagonists have produced goals at both ends and with the amount of attacking talent on show in Sunday’s final, bettors can pursue the same market with confidence.

Over 2.5 Goals

Games involving Ajax and PSV usually come with a guarantee of goals and with so much at stake in Sunday’s cup final, we expect the action to be delivered in spades again. The last six drama-laden encounters between the sides averaged a healthy 3.5 goals per 90 minutes and in what promises to be a slugfest in Rotterdam this weekend, the over 2.5 totals line looks a safe bet at the prices on offer.

PSV vs Ajax Match Preview and Team News

PSV

Armando Obispo, Phillipp Mwene and Ryan Thomas are all considered doubtful for PSV, while Shurandy Sambo is laid low with an ACL injury. With the Eredivisie title looking more and more out of reach and the club’s Europa League hopes dashed by Leicester, the KNVB Beker looks like PSV’s best remaining opportunity to land a major trophy before manager Roger Schmidt jumps ship to Benfica.

Ajax

Ajax have a number of injury issues to contend with this weekend. Zakarai Labyad is a confirmed absentee with a long-term injury issue, while Noussair Mazraoui, Antony, Devyne Rensch, Lisandro Martinez and Remko Pasveer are all considered doubtful. Ajax have won each of their last three matches, though they had to come from behind on each occasion.
