PSV Eindhoven vs Ajax
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 22 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:45 UK / 16:45 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
PSV Eindhoven have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their recent games are currently level on points with the reigning champions at the helm. The hosts pulled off a thumping 5-0 win over Vitesse in their most recent clash at home which saw Donyell Malen single-handedly run riot over their counterparts.
Ajax have been proving their mettle in their respective clashes as well, and are on a four-match winning streak of their own at the moment. The visitors picked up a whopping 4-1 victory over Heerenveen in their previous home game in the league, prior to which they thrashed Sparta Rotterdam on the road with the very same scoreline.
The away side walked away with the bragging rights when they locked horns two months ago at Amsterdam in the fiercely fought Super Cup. However, with home advantage out of the equation for Ajax, PSV Eindhoven will be fancying their chances of taking revenge.

PSV Eindhoven vs Ajax Prediction
Although PSV have been securing the bragging rights in their last three clashes here in a running, it needs saying that neither team have been showing any signs of slowing down in their domestic campaign. So it is too close to call a clear winner in this one.
However, both the teams have been consistent in adding to their goals tally. Mark Van Bommel’s men have found the back of the net eight times from their last two home games in the Eredivisie and have conceded just once in the process as well.
On the other hand, Ajax have not been shy in racking up the goals either and have scored ten from their previous three outings. Although the visitors have not been able to breach their foes in their last three visits to this venue, PSV can rule out their hopes of walking away with a clean sheet in this one as the away side have scored no less than two goals each in their trips on the road so far.
Furthermore, seven of their previous ten clashes at this venue have featured three goals or more on the scoreboards at the last blast of the whistle. So, count on both teams to have their scoring boots on in this one and to post over 2.5 goals on the scorecards.
