Vitesse vs. Ajax Betting Tips
Vitesse host Ajax for their Matchday 23 clash on Sunday in an attempt to hold the title contenders off and return to their great home form. However, the visitors travel in great shape, having earned a five-match win streak in Eredivisie and holding Legia to a goalless draw in their mid-week Europa League clash in Warsaw, and we’ll go for an away win at 4/6 with William Hill
Although Vitas have proven to be a difficult away day for any side, with five wins and two draws recorded in their last eight games there, they’ve had their unbeaten streak ended by Willem II last week and their confidence will now surely be dented ahead of the clash.
Ajax, on the other hand, have earned five confident Eredivisie wins in 2017 and with confidence taken from leaving Warsaw unbeaten, they’ll surely be motivated to continue the streak and maintain consistency ahead of the Europa League return match. We have seen some impressive defensive performances and five consecutive clean sheets for de Godenzonen, and it’s indeed a longshot to assume Vitesse can now deny them a sixth consecutive league win.
However, with Ajax scoring more than two goals in just one of those occasions and Vitesse improving their backline recently, this promises to be a low-scoring game with high stakes for both sides! We’ll thus go for Under 2.5 goals FT and it can be backed at 19/20 with BetVictor
, which is sure to be a popular pick this weekend!
Vitesse vs. Ajax Stats
Ajax have been able to earn narrow wins in both of their 2016 matchups, bagging the points with 1-0 wins both in January and September. Although Vitesse have been traditionally somewhat more of a challenge for de Godenzonen at GelreDome and we’re used to more goals there (16 in their last five matches), we do believe we’re in for a similar display this time around.
We’ll thus go for a 0-1 away win in the correct score market; a longshot that can be backed at a good-looking 6/1 with bet365
and now seems the best value in the market.
