Match Preview and Predictions

  • Three of Utrecht’s last five Eredivisie matches have seen both teams score in clashes featuring over 2.5 goals won/lost either way. Further to the entertainment factor, each of Utrecht’s last three matches to feature any goals have seen the scoring opened within five minutes, in first halves featuring exactly two first-half goals.
  • The hosts are unbeaten in six home league matches (W5, D1), with the last five seeing both teams score. Fans in ‘spiritual’ attendance should stick with this one until the end, as four of those five wins saw at least 75% of the total match goals arrive in the second half.
  • After averaging a tremendous 3.0 first-half goals across three successive league victories preceding this clash, Ajax have scored 250 goals in 82 league games under Erik ten Hag. That is the joint fastest of any manager with one Eredivisie side to reach that milestone, tied only with former Ajax legend Johan Cruyff.
  • Those three wins mentioned above also saw Ajax score successive match goals with less than ten minutes separating them. Their ability to capitalise on strong periods is partially evidenced by the fact that ten (W6, L4) of Ajax’s last 11 Eredivisie away matches to produce any goals have seen the side scoring first go on to win.
  • Players to watch: Sander van de Streek has scored the final goal in both of Utrecht’s prior home wins this campaign. His three prior goalscoring Eredivisie home appearances against ‘big three’ opposition (AJA/PSV/FEY) have seen Utrecht avoid defeat (W2, D1).
  • Ajax star Lassina Traoré assisted the first and scored the last goal in the Amsterdam club’s unforgettable previous Eredivisie away trip (W 13-0). His all-time win rate from goalscoring matches is 68.18%.
