PSV vs Ajax Prediction & Betting tips
On Sunday, the top match between PSV and Ajax is on the program. And it is a special topper, since the Final Enemies are champions of the Netherlands with a victory. Ajax will of course want to prevent this.
PSV Eindhoven took an important step towards the third national title in four years time last Saturday. Admittedly, visiting AZ Alkmaar was not against the arbitration, and the other side made big defensive errors, but apart from that PSV played one of his better matches of the season. The team from Brabant came back well from a 2-0 deficit and eventually managed to win 2-3. As a result, the gap with Ajax remained a pretty reassuring seven points.
The championship is upcoming, even though coach Phillip Cocu did not try to be too busy with that. ‘At the beginning of the week we talked about this jointly,’ the trainer stated on the club site. Cocu also indicated that the team is concentrating well on the upcoming match, in which the national title may thus be secured. PSV is on full power against the team from Amsterdam. Steven Bergwijn is available again after a suspension. In the attack Cocu has to make some choices.
Ajax seemed to be well helped by AZ last week. The provincial team of Ajax gave a 2-0 lead against PSV and with a win from the Alkmaarders the gap between Ajax and PSV would be reduced to four points. As we know, things went differently, so that there is a lottery for Ajax as an extra in the champion feast of the Brabanders. On Sunday Ajax won with only a small margin from Heracles Almelo (1-0).
Trainer Erik ten Hag spoke at the weekly press talk about the difference between his team and PSV. “We are aware that we do a lot of things – and even better – than PSV,” said Ten Hag, who then indicated that his team’s biggest problem is that they need a lot of chances to reach a goal – problem that surfaced in the match against Heracles. Ten Hag still can not have Frenkie de Jong on Sunday. Furthermore, there are no new injuries.
