Ajax vs Vitesse
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena.
The Lancers are the reigning champions of the competition, and they also have been the best team in the country for the past several years with PSV. They have every intention of defending their title this season, and have raced to a superb start.
They have a 100% winning record at the moment, and are yet to concede their first goal this season.
Meanwhile, their counterparts had to settle for a modest seventh-place finish in 2019-20, and thus qualified to no European competition. And like almost any other team in the Netherlands, they have a terrible h2h record against this opponent.
As such, expect a dominating Ajax win this Saturday.
Ajax vs Vitesse: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The title-holders have recorded 25 of the former 34 overall wins.
- They had registered a 0-3 win on the road the last time these two met on the pitch.
- They have scored a total of 16 goals from the preceding five clashes.
- At this stadium, the hosts recorded 24 of the previous 32 wins.

Ajax vs Vitesse: Prediction
Erik ten Hag’s men won 12 of their last 13 overall games, and they have scored two or more goals in nine of their former twelve fixtures. And at home, they had won 15 of their preceding 17 appearances, and slotted in two or more goals in 13 of their previous 17 fixtures here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in four of their last six overall matches, and remained so in five of their former eight road trips.
Going on, the Lancers also have dominated this opponent over the years in h2h meetings. In fact, they have registered 25 of the preceding 34 overall wins, and 24 of the past 32 at this venue.
Finally, and most importantly, Hag’s men are easily the best team in the league, and they have been so for the past several decades. By all means, expect a convincing Ajax win this weekend.
