Match Preview and Predictions
- Last Saturday’s 2-0 victory at Zwolle saw Sittard’s hopes of a top-half finish boosted, as it marked a third win in four Eredivisie outings, and a second league match in three to see them beat the -1 handicap in one half alone. However, they face a team that has done likewise (in at least the second half) in each of the four H2Hs played since Sittard’s promotion in 2018.
- Sittard’s 57.14% loss rate as pre-match home outsiders in Eredivisie action this term further compounds their apparent vulnerability to being severely outclassed. From a historical perspective, so too does the average margin (2.74) yielded by their competitive H2H losses since the start of 1982/83.
- Table-topping Ajax are potentially on the verge of recording three consecutive league wins with a precise 1-0 HT lead for the first time since April/May 2012. On that note, the 1-0 ‘Klassieker’ win vs Feyenoord in their last league match saw Ajax emerge victorious from a HT lead for a 12th time across 13 league wins recorded so far.
- Ever the assured travellers, Ajax have conceded just 0.63 goals on average per away league game. Meanwhile, if excluding that 13-0 anomaly, Ajax’s average winning margin from away league victories this term is 2.60.
- Players to watch: Mats Seuntjens rounded off the scoring for Sittard vs Zwolle (89’) – seven of his last eight goals have come during matches producing over 2.5 total goals. Now off the mark with Ajax, Sébastien Haller – who netted in de Godenzonen’s last away league game – has seen his teams return an average of 2.28 points from his all-time goalscoring games.
- Hot stat: Five of Ajax’s last six Eredivisie away H2Hs won/lost have seen the victor on the day win one half by a 2-0 scoreline.
