Ajax vs Utrecht Match Preview
Ajax have the perfect antidote this weekend to their Champions League heartbreak – by trying to take a big step towards completing the Dutch domestic double.
The famous Amsterdam club looked all set to head for Madrid to take on Liverpool in the showdown for Europe’s most coveted trophy as the clock ticked down in their semi-final against Tottenham, only for Lucas Moura to kill the dream by completing a hat-trick deep into stoppage time.
Obviously the agony and despair of going so close, having been in a thoroughly commanding position, could now have an effect on the Eredivisie title race, either in terms of galvanising Ajax or rendering them unable to get up off the canvas.
Erik ten Hag’s vibrant young side are level on points with PSV Eindhoven and have a better goal difference, each team matching the other blow for blow over the last few weeks in similar style to Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League.
In their last home game of the campaign, Ajax, who last weekend won the Dutch Cup final 4-0 against Willem II, face fifth-placed Europa League hopefuls Utrecht, managed by former Rangers, Sunderland and Netherlands coach – among many others – Dick Advocaat.
We will count on Ten Hag to have picked his youngsters up off the floor and inspired them to earn a victory that would leave them in pole position to regain the league title for the first time since 2014.
