Ajax vs Feyenoord
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 17 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:45 UK/ 16:45 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam).
Ajax is at the top of the league table this season, but the recent two draws have put them leveled in points with the next to kin. Their previous encounter was at home, and they shared the spoils in a 2-2 encounter with PSV Eindhoven in the schedule.
Feyenoord is in second place on the table with the same points as the host. This makes the match one of the most anticipated clashes of the campaign this season. They are on a three-game winning streak in the league, following a 1-0 win at home against Zwolle.
Ajax vs Feyenoord Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has won only one of their past ten meetings since 2015.
- The host has recorded four of the last five overall wins since 2018.
- Their previous encounter in 2019 gave a 4-0 home win for Ajax.
- Both teams have scored only once in their recent five fixtures.
- None of their last seven matches in the league have ended in a draw.
Ajax vs Feyenoord Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is going to be a home win in full-time. Ajax enjoys the ground advantage and has lost only 2 of their 15 appearances so far this season. They have scored 54 goals in that time period, which assures we can expect goals from the home team anytime in ninety minutes.
On the other hand, Feyenoord is likely to give headaches to the table toppers. They have already leveled the points with the host on the table. However, they have won only once in their last ten h2h meetings with Ajax, and that too was at the comforts of their home ground.
With a three-game winning streak in the campaign, we cannot expect the visitor to back off without a fight in the encounter. There is a good chance that the away team will also contribute to the scoresheet in ninety minutes. Hence, the tip for over 2.5 goals and BTTS combined will probably serve the purpose.
