Ajax vs VVV
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Thursday, 19 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Amsterdam ArenA (Amsterdam).
Ajax lost the final battle with PSV who became the new champions by trashing de Godenzonen 3-0 on Sundays at Philips Stadion. It was a painful defeat for Erik ten Hag and his men and the Ditch manager will clearly have hard times motivating the players for the mid-week’s fixture against VVV at Amsterdam, ArenA.
The hosts do need a win, though, in order to stay five points above AZ in second and at least book a place in the Champions League qualifications next term. Their opponents accomplished their main gaol which was saving the top flight status. They are eight points above the relegation playoffs spots with only three games left to play.
However, Maurice Steijn’s side is in a huge crisis. VV V grabbed only one point in last five league outings being very easy to break down at the back along the way.
Ajax vs VVV: Head-to-head
Ajax have been ruthless in the history of head to head encounters with VVV.
De Godenzonen won 11 and drew 2 of 13 meetings with VVV.
Ajax won each of six home clashes against Venlo with the 20-1 goal difference.
Ajax vs VVV: Prediction
VVV shipped three goals on three occasions in last five Eredivisie ties. They are now up against one of the most talented attacking line in the country and we doubt Steijn’s men will arrest the mentioned slump in form on Thursday.
The hosts also dominated the head to head match-up conceding just once in six home outings with VVV. You can back Ajax to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 1.66. Ajax to win by three or more goals is priced up at 2.05. It’s a bet worth backing if we know that the hosts will want to fix the impression rom the weekend’s loss to PSV.
