De Graafcshap vs Ajax Prediction & Match Preview

De Graafcshap vs Ajax
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Wednesday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadion De Vijverberg (Doetinchem).

Ajax will finally lift the Eredivisie trophy for the first time in five years following their 4-1 win over Utrecht and PSV’s 1-0 loss at AZ Alkmaar on Sunday. De Godenzonen are three points clear at the top of the league ladder and have a way better goal difference than last year champions (by 14 goals) coming into the last round match against penultimate-placed De Graafschap.

Mathematically, Erik ten Hag’s men need a point to secure the title, but it is practically in their hands with such situation before the final Matchday. Obviously, Ajax will be massive favourites to complete a tremendous season with a victory on Wednesday evening when they travel to Stadion De Vijverberg.

The visitors indeed had a dream run across all cometitions this season. They won double crown in The Netherlands and they went all the way to the Champions League semi-final eliminating the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus en route.

De Graafschap vs Ajax: Head-to-head

Local fans in Doetinchem can still certainly remember the painful 8-0 loss their team suffered in the clash against Ajax in the first half of the season at Johan Cruijff Arena.

Ajax won 24, drew 7 and lost none of 31 H2H matches against Superboeren.

De Godenzonen won 15 and drew 1 of last 16 meetings with De Graafschap.

De Graafschap vs Ajax: Prediction

The hosts joined the elite tier through play-offs last season and they’ll have to go through the same procedure in order to avoid the drop this time around. They will hardly enter the play-offs in high spirits given they fell 6-1 away at Vitesse on Sunday and give they are set to play the strongest team in the country and Champions League semi-finalists on Wednesday.

The gulf in quality between the two sides is just enormous and we can only expect an entirely one-sided contest for the new Dutch champions here.
