Groningen vs Ajax: Preview and Predictions

Groningen vs Ajax
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 1 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Noordlease Stadion (Groningen).

Groningen are going to take on Ajax in the 29th round of Dutch Eredivisie on Sunday afternoon. The hosts are looking for a surprise here, while the away side is still hoping that they could get involved in the title race.

Home side is not having a very good season since they are sitting on the 13th spot and they don’t have any chances to challenge the top half of the table. On the other hand, they are safe of getting relegated and although Ernest Faber’s side has been pretty productive in front of the oppositions’ goal, their bad defence costed them of many lost points. Groningen have booked only six wins in total, from which five of them came on the home ground where they are actually playing fairly good. In the last six matches in front of their fans they haven’t tasted a defeat.

Ajax are the second placed side and they are seven points behind their rivals on the top spot, PSV. Klaas Jan Huntelaar and the lads have been the most efficient side in the competition with 77 goals scored so far in the season. They’ve been very good also wen playing away from home, and they managed to win all three points at away pitches on nine occasions. The visitors need to win this one if they want to raise hopes of winning the title at the end of the season.

Groningen vs Ajax: Head-to-head

Naturally, Ajax have been much more successful in their head to head clashes and they haven’t lost to Groningen since 2014. Their head to head clashes are mostly the moderate scoring ones.

Groningen vs Ajax: Prediction

The visitors are strong favourites in this one and they should be able to get back home with a win without many troubles.

Since Ajax are the fiercest attacking side in the league and home side’s defence is leaking, this one should go over 3.5 margin.
