Ajax vs Fortuna Sittard
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam).
Ajax had to make do with just a point in their most recent outing which saw them play out a 1-1 draw against PSV Eindhoven. Despite breaking the deadlock in the second half, the squad failed to hold on to their lead and were handed what was their second draw of the season.
Fortuna Sittard are showing no signs of turning things around from their dismal form and are at the moment just a point away from slumping to rock bottom. The visitors have just two measly points to their name and have shown no conviction whatsoever in both attack and defense.
With Sittard sporting a far from impressive away record under their belt, Ajax will certainly be eying all three points for the taking in this one.

Ajax vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
Erik Ten Hag’s men are on a five-match winning streak on home soil, that too across multiple competitions. The hosts have won their only two home games in the league as well, and have scored nine goals so far from their matchups here.
Additionally, Ajax have been making light over of this foe in their past clashes at this venue and have secured the bragging rights in each of their previous five in a running. It is also worth mentioning that Fortuna Sittard’s last victory over the hosts here came way back in the year of 1999.
Considering that none of their head to head fixtures so far have gone over the five-goal mark, count on Ajax to win and to wrap things up with under 5.5 goals on the scoreboards.
Furthermore, nine of the twenty goals that Ajax have in the bag as of now, have come from their clashes at home. Taking into account that six of those nine found their way into the back of the net in the latter forty-five minutes of the game, there is certainly reason to believe that there will be over 1.5 goals post the restart on Wednesday.
