Ajax vs Vitesse
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam).
It has been nothing short of a fairytale for Ajax this season. The team is confidently in the hunt for the treble – the only other team in Europe which has the same objective is Barcelona. Ajax, who had to wade through three qualifying rounds in the Champions League, is now in the semi-finals, and after back-to-back wins against Real Madrid and Juventus. Take a bow, Ajax. Take a bow.
Vitesse is winless in their last six games in a row, and not even their hardcore fans would be betting for them to not make it seven in a row. While they are in the play-off zone as of now, it might be temporary, considering they are on the road against the mighty Ajax and has just a single-point surplus over their in-form, the nearest competitor, Willem II.

Ajax vs Vitesse Prediction
Ajax was unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 games, and in 20 of their last 21 home ties. Meanwhile, Vitesse was winless in their last six matches, and in eight of their last nine on the road. H2h ties show that Ajax has had the upper hand for the last many years against this opponent.
The team recorded 13 of the last 20 wins, and 14 of the last 18 wins at this venue. Ajax also managed to find the back of the net in the last seven encounters at this stadium, while Vitesse could just manage a single goal in their last three visits.
Moreover, Ajax has a major opportunity to record the treble, with them being at the top of the league table, in the Champions League Semifinal, and in the domestic cup final. For league triumph, all they have to do is win the remaining fixtures, and no matter what their competitor PSV would do, Ajax would take the crown.
Ajax has also been the best offensive side in this competition, with 106 goals so far in total, and 62 at home. The team is a massive favorite to blast Vitesse away and get closer to their cherished Eredivisie title.
