Ajax vs VVV-Venlo
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 2nd February 2019
Kick-off at 18.45 UK/ 19.45 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam).
God help whoever wants to take on the Lancers now. Their grip on the Eredivisie title has loosened a bit, all courtesy to their misfiring in the last two weeks. The lengthy transfer saga of their two stalwarts Frenkie De Jong and Mathis de Ligt might have played a role in it. Anyhow, after all the hard work the boys put in the entire season, PSV seems to be running away with the league.
De Joden will be angry, and they will want reparations, and someone is going to pay.
A pairing with the Venlose Trots seems the ideal choice from an outsider’s perspective. The team just loves to score goals. And with the Lucky Ajax in a mood to kill, it would take the fun out of the entire process had a team camped in front of the goal, and tried to survive the ninety minutes. But not this group of players. Not the Good Old.

Ajax vs VVV-Venlo Prediction
It’s going to rain goals this Saturday in Amsterdam. Erik ten Hag’s men have scored the most number of goals in the league, and have done it at four per fixture at home. They possess the second highest average number of goals per tie, in the Eredivisie, and the highest at home.
The team scored in their last 16 home-ties in a row, scored two or more in 15 of those 16 and scored three or more in 13. In their last six attempts alone, the home-fans witnessed 25 goals.
The Pride of the South scored in their last six fixtures in a row and registered two or more in the last five. They also managed to find the back of the net in 13 of their last 15 games away from home. Also, their matches on the road have an average of 3.2 goals per tie.
It’s safe to assume at least two goals in the first 45 minutes, and a total of at least four in the 90.
