Ajax vs Utrecht
Date: Sunday, 7 February 2021
Kick-Off at 11.15 UK
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam.
Ajax took advantage of PSV’s slip-up to increase the gap at the top of the Eredivisie standings to seven points. They have been scoring goals for fun lately and will head into Sunday’s home fixture against Utrecht in the highest of spirits.
De Godenzonen bagged three goals in each of the last two wins over Willem II and AZ. They won six on the bounce in all competitions, despite playing the likes of Twente, Feyenoord, and AZ Alkmaar (twice) in the process.
Utreg have had a roller-coaster campaign so far in the season. They ended a three-win streak by barely avoiding a defeat in a 3-3 draw to PEC Zwolle last weekend on the home patch.
Just after they kept three consecutive clean sheets, Rene Hake’s men shipped three goals in a single game. That is certainly not the kind of performance you want to have going into the clash with by far the most lethal attacking line in the country.
Ajax vs Utrecht Head-to-head
- Ajax have been the dominant side in this match-up historically. They won 32, drew 11, and lost 17 of 60 meetings with Utreg.
- Ajax will go into this on the back of three subsequent victories over Utrecht. They have scored as many as 13 goals in the process.
- The reverse fixture played between these two sides in mid-December last year produced an amazing nine-goal thriller. It ended in Ajax’s 5-4 win.
- Three or more goals were scored in six of the last seven head to head games.
Ajax vs Utrecht Prediction
Erik ten Hag has so many attacking weapons capable of causing a severe damage to Utrecht. After all, Ajax proved their strength in the last several matches against this opposition. They notched 13 goals in the last three games against Utreg.
The hosts scored three goals in each of the last two league outings. Utrecht conceded three goals at home to the likes of PEC Zwolle last weekend. Therefore Ajax to win by at least two goals difference is our main pick at the odds of 1.95.
