Ajax win at half-time and full-time

Ajax have had a brilliant record of winning both halves in recent matches, as the last six Eredivisie games for the club have ended with success at both halves. This spells trouble for Utrecht, who have managed one win in the last seven games in all competitions.

Total goals over 3.5

It is no secret that Ajax are the top scorers in the division by a huge margin. Ajax have scored 10 more goals than PSV despite being second of the standings. As a result, nine out of the 14 matches for Ajax this season have seen over 3.5 goals.

Both teams to score – Yes

Ajax might have one of the strongest offences in the Dutch Eredivisie by a margin, but their defence is likely to face a challenge from Utrecht, who have scored at least a goal in the last five games. Utrecht also have home advantage to score an away goal past Ajax for the first time since August.

Utrecht vs Ajax: Eredivisie Preview and Team News


Utrecht might be in the top seven of the Dutch Eredivisie, but they are unlikely to hang on to this position if the current mediocre form persists. Utrecht are also missing players for this game with Christopher Mamengi and Tommy St. Jago likely to miss the game, while Moussa Sylla is definitely ruled out.


Ajax are in a brilliant position to overtake PSV provided there are any slipups from the table leaders. The one-point deficit could be easily swinging in favour of Ajax, who have many players unavailable for the game due to a combination of injuries and international duty. André Onana, Mohammed Kudus, and Sébastien Haller are unavailable due to international action, while Sean Klaiber and Maarten Stekelenburg are unavailable due to injuries. Lisandro Martínez and Noussair Mazraoui are likely to miss the game due to injuries.
