This will be the first appearance of Ajax after drawing with Chelsea in a 4-4 thriller at the latter’s home in the Champions League clash. With zero losses in the Eredivisie in this season, Ajax will be in the comfort zone against Utrecht.
Ajax is at the topmost spot in the table with 10 wins and 2 draws in the 12 league appearances so far. The Jews are in a six-game win streak in the league and have collected all 15 points from their 5 home matches. Also, their previous encounter at home was with Feyenoord.
In the event, the Jews thrashed the opponents with four goals to nil with all goals coming in the first half of the ninety minutes.
With 7 wins and 3 losses in a dozen clashes in the campaign, FC Utrecht is at the fourth position in the league table. In the meantime, Utrecht will be building on their previous win against Sparta Rotterdam on the road.
Even so, the visiting side has registered only two wins in six away fixtures in the league. Also, their lone win in the last five away games was with Sparta Rotterdam at the 11th place in the table.
Utrecht has lost when facing their neighbor in the table, Vitesse, on the road prior to their previous trip on the road.
As such, with their current strength in form and the dominance in the league, Ajax is more capable of registering a win in the game.
