FC Utrecht vs Ajax Amsterdam
Date: Sunday, 8 November 2020
Kick-Off at 11.15 UK
Venue: Galgenwaard Stadium, Utrecht.
Ajax have been furious in Eredivisie lately and scored 23 goals in three games, as they beat Heerenveen (5-1) and Fortuna Sittard (5-2) at home ground and outclassed VVV with 13 goals to Nil along the way. They beat Midtjylland (1-2) in the Champions League earlier this week and travel to Utrecht in a great mood on Sunday as well.
De Godenzonen top the league table but have Vitesse, PSV, and Heerenveen breathing down their necks, which will still have pressure on them to deliver at Galgenwaard Stadium. The attacking line led by Dusan Tadic and Lassina Traore has been delivering and it’s hard to make a case against them at this point.
Utrecht have been in good shape since the October International break but have seen a three-match unbeaten streak ended by Heracles (4-1). They’ve been conceding goals and it proved costly last week, which will be worrying ahead of possibly the toughest challenge at home ground looming. John van den Brom’s men have been scoring goals and will surely want to pose a serious threat now as well, though.

Utrecht vs Ajax Prediction
We now hope to see another high-scoring occasion in Utrecht and we’ll back Ajax to turn it their way and a YES on Both teams to score at 2.62. They were simply frantic in the final third and we hope to see the visitors build on such records in Eredivisie on Sunday, outgunning the rivals at Galgenwaard Stadium.
Indeed, Ajax haven’t been as impressive defensively and we do see Utrecht having a say. With that in mind, we’re also going for a high-scoring occasion with Over 3 goals at 1.83, which feels like a solid approach to the fixture given both sides’ high-scoring records of recent – which were also seen in head-to-head encounters of recent.
