Ajax vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction & Betting tips
Ajax returns to the home base after the euphoric evening in Madrid, where Fortuna Sittard comes to visit. Fortuna gets a lot of goals in the last few weeks in eliminations and seems to be the ideal prey for the team from Amsterdam to work on the goal difference. In Sittard, Ajax was able to win 0-2 after a 0-0 score, now an even bigger result is expected.
Nothing new can be said about the shape of Ajax. Since it lost to Heracles (1-0) and Real Madrid (1-2), it has created a perfect series. Against both NAC Breda and ADO Den Haag it was easy to win and worked on the goal difference, in total the Ajax team scored ten goals. Then there was the cup victory in de Kuip, which took the revenge for the 6-2 defeat earlier this year against Feyenoord.
After having had a rest last weekend in the competition, the Erik Ten Hag team was kicked off in Madrid. The team from Amsterdam gave away a football show with Dušan Tadić as the star, he was even voted UEFA Player of the Week. The Serb not only gave two assists but also scored his sixth Champions League goal of the season, making him the first player to perform since Jari Litmanen in 95/96.
Due to the shifted league game of last weekend there is a busy week on the program. After this home game, the overtaking game against PEC Zwolle will follow Wednesday and the away match at AZ next weekend. Ajax does not seem to have to worry about this first match, so far it has won all three competitions against PhD students with a total goal balance of 15-0, and Ten Hag has a virtually fit selection at its disposal.
Fortuna Sittard is still in a safe thirteenth place but still has only two points ahead of the relegation zone. Three times in a row was lost with big numbers (6-0 against Heracles, 2-4 against Heerenveen and 4-2 against AZ), in addition the team was also completely out of the question in the other two outings this year (5-0 against PSV , 5-1 against the Graafschap).
Given these figures, it is not surprising that Fortuna got the most against all foreigners from all clubs in the Eredivisie, it gets on average 3.1 goals against each game. The Limburgers sometimes show off in an offensive way, against both Heerenveen and AZ, Fortuna was still 2-1 ahead in the half time. Due to the moderate defense, it is often not possible to win a result in this type of competition. Also trainer Rene Eijer lacks a decent group of players due to injuries, among others Ninaj and Stokkers are missing again this weekend.
