Ajax slipped 5 points behind their title rivals PSV as they lost 3-0 to them, this week they are traveling to face Fortuna Sittard.
Ajax played well, had more possession than their host and created some chances but we’re unable to convert any of those chances. They had 66% of total possession, 4 shots on target from 15 shots but ended up losing them game to nil.
PSV were able to score from 8 shots on target out of 14 shots, so we can say Ajax was doing the playing while PSV was scoring. The Amsterdam team consoled themselves on Wednesday night with a 7-0 win against Te Werve in KNVB first cup round.
Fortuna Sittard are among the sides that have entertained spectators in all their games this season. We always see box to box attack in their games as they are good in attack even against stronger teams and we hope to be entertained in this game.
Each of Fortuna’s league games this season have recorded goals for the two participating teams. The played out a 4-4 draw at home against Willem last week and defeated NAC Breda 3-2 away in the previous week.
Also they scored 5 against Helmond sport in KNVB Cup first round on Tuesday and we think they are mentally ready for Ajax. However, they have only won a game this season and drawn 3, keeping them 7 points behind this week’s visitors.
