PSV Eindhoven vs Ajax
Date: Sunday, 23rd September 2018
Kick-off at 15:45 UK/ 16:45 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
PSV are the only team that still has excellent record in Dutch Eredivisie this season. They will hope for a home win against Ajax this weekend to keep it up and also stretch further early lead in the table.
This is match is talk on every Eredivisie fans mouth this weekend, it is anticipated to come with so much action and we hope they don’t disappoint. PSV have won all their 5 games in the league massing up 15 points.
The more interesting part is that the PSV have been good on all angles both in defense and upfront. They have conceded only 3 goals in Eredivisie nut have scored a massive 21 goals, this include 4-0 win against Utrecht in the opening day and 7-0 win against Den Haag last week.
PSV’s morale won’t be that high as they were humiliated in Spain in the midweek Champions League game. They lost 4-0 to Barcelona on Tuesday and Ajax would want to take advantage of this morale breaking defeat as they won theirs 3-0 against AEK.
Ajax are closing following PSV in the table having won 4 of the 5 games and drawn once. They have 13 points to their name and are 2 points behind their host PSV.
Interestingly, they have a more stable defense than PSV, they have conceded just once so far in the Eredivisie. They only conceded in their 1-1 draw against Heracles in the opening game and have only conceded 2 goals in their last 9 games in all competitions.
Ajax will enter this game from a 3-0 midweek Champions League won against AEK on Wednesday. They dominated the game all round, allowing the opponent no shot on target from their 4 wide shots.
Ajax had 66% possession in the game and 16 shots which 6 of them were on target, they will go in to this game with the confidence.

PSV Eindhoven vs Ajax Prediction
This is a tough one to call, the two sides are in superb form except for PSV’s demise in the Champions League. We think that will have an effect on their confidence and let their guard.
It won’t be and easy game for both side but we are expecting the game to see few goals considering the two sides have been good defensively. We are backing the game to end in goalless draw or 1-1 draw
