Excelsior vs Ajax: Preview and Predictions

Excelsior vs Ajax
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 6 May 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: Van Donge & De Roo Stadion, Rotterdam.

Excelsior host Ajax in the final day in a match which will by no means affect the Eredivisie standings. De Godenzonen finished runners-up behind PSV in what has been another dreadful campaign for the Dutch heavyweights. Can they are least finish the season on high completing the third straight league win in Rotterdam?

The visitors come into the game as massive favourites given their counterparts shipped as many as four goals in a horrific defeat away at Groningen seven days ago. The Rotterdam side are thus winless in last three league games as last two saw them concede as many as six goals.

This is definitely anything but encouraging ahead of the clash with one of country’s strongest attacking lines and we would not be surprised to see Mitchell van der Gaag’s side suffering a disaster here.

Excelsior vs Ajax: Head-to-head

Ajax were ruthless in the history of matches with Kralingers.

De Godenzonen won 13, drew 3 and lost 2 of 18 head to head matches with Excelsior.

Ajax took a 3-1 victory when the two teams locked horns in this term’s clash at Amsterdam ArenA.

Excelsior vs Ajax: Prediction

Kasper Dolberg may make the return to the squad on the final day as he is reported to be recovered from an injury which has kept him sidelined since December last year. Ajax bagged as many as seven goals in last two wins over VVV and AZ and we genuinely believe they will be in position to finish the season on high with a demolishing victory against the struggling opposition here. De Godenzonen are well worth backing to win by two or more goals at the odds of 1.85.

You can obviously also try with Ajax to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 1.72 odds. Kralingers won just one of last seven home games in the league and their defensive line proved out to be super vulnerable in the most recent set of fixtures.
