PSV vs Ajax
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 15 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:45 UK
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
PSV have the first match point on Sunday when they host Ajax in the derby of the entire season at Philips Stadion. The Peasant will head De Topper high on confidence after producing a magnificent second-half comeback against AZ last time out. They thus maintained the seven-point cushion at the top of the Eredivisie standing and a win here would clinch them the 24th title in the top flight of the Dutch football.
Philip Cocu’s men were thriving in the final third lately bagging as many as 11 goals in three subsequent wins over VVV, NAC Breda and AZ. The team also showed a great fighting spirit to come back from a two-goal deficit at AFAS Stadion. Both Hirving Lozano and Marco van Ginkel were on target for PSV. Holding this duo down will be the main challenge for Erik ten Hag on Sunday.
Ajax, on the other side, won four straight league ties, but these successes will count for little as PSV are still far away at the very top of the ladder. Even a win here would not mean a lot for de Godenzonen who would then be four points shy of leaders with only three games left to play. Also, Ajax did not impress at all in the latest outings as they barely snatched narrow wins over Groningen and Heracles in last two rounds.
PSV vs Ajax: Head-to-head
The Peasants will be motivated to get the revenge for the painful 3-0 they suffered earlier this season at Amsterdam ArenA.
Overall, they had much more success in clashes against Ajax at Philips Stadion, winning 12 and losing only 6 of 28 H2H games there.
Interestingly, both teams scored in only one of last four De Toppers.
PSV vs Ajax: Prediction
PSV left a much better impression both throughout the season and in the last couple of weeks and we have to see them as slight favourites to grab the spoils in front of the home crowd.
The home win is worth backing at 2.50 odds, while tipsters who prefer safer options can go with the double chance backing the Peasants not to lose here at 1.53.
